About Canadienne CattleAbout Canadienne Cattle



Canadienne cattle arrived in Quebec between 1608 and 1660. They were the first cattle breed to be developed in North America, primarily from animals imported from Normandy and Brittany. The stock was blended on this continent and selected for hardiness and productivity in the New World.  

Canadienne were very popular until the beginning of the 19th century. Later, the breed was threatened by the introduction of larger sized British stock, before being taken in hand in 1883 by a small group of concerned breeders who formed the Canadienne Cattle Breeders Association. The Canadienne breed is still mainly found in the province of Quebec.  

Canadienne cattle are recognized for their hardiness and adaptability to inhospitable soils and climates. They are born pale but their coat becomes black, brown, tawny or reddish-brown with a paler muzzle, side, and udder or scrotum. Cows weigh 1000 -1100 pounds, are long-lived and have a docile temperament. The meat tends to be lean, and the light bone results in a high dressing percentage. Their milk is also in demand for cheese production.
