The Bazadaise ( pronounced Baz-a-day) originated from the South-west of France in the middle ages, where the breed got its name from the historic town of Bazas. It has been used for agricultural and forest work, both in the lowlands and the Haute Pyrenees, proving to be an exceptional working breed due to its toughness and vigour, even in the most extreme conditions.
Bazadaise Bulls are generally dark grey in colour with a lighter saddle. Cows, on the other hand, are a lighter grey and often slightly shaded in wheat colour. Calves are born wheat colour and turn darker after weaning. In all cases, the muzzle and eyes are light and clear. They have exceptional length, good muscular development and a fine bone structure.
The Bazadaise calves are born small and are alert and mobile soon after birth. They weigh typically 35-42 kg, which allows for easy calving, as muscling develops after two weeks. The cows are quiet natured and make excellent mothers and generally have a calving interval of fewer than 380 days. The calves are intelligent and easy to manage with consistent conformation and rapid growth rates (average 200kg at four months).
Bazadaise bulls have proven their worth on all breeds for beef. Undoubtedly Bazadaise represents the best option for farmers in today’s demanding market. Providing lean, succulent, tasty beef.
