Normande cattle

Normande cattle are a breed from the Normandy region in North West France. They are claimed to be descended from cattle imported by Viking settlers.[1]

The breed is dual purpose for milk and beef, with the accent on milk production. The milk is particularly suitable for cheese production.

The animals are chestnut-brown pied or black pied. The head is white and the eyes are darkly "spectacled" ("lunettes").

Cows average 700kg in weight and are approximately 140cm tall. Bulls are typically 1,100kg in weight and 152cm tall.
