Blonde Cows are the perfect mothers for your growing calves. This Photo Contest winner was taken by Reed Rigney of Willow Springs Stock Farm of Westlock Alberta. Reed found this one as he was looking for pictures for the Alberta Blondes booth at the Calgary Stampede.The Canadian Blonde d'Aquitaine Association is an association of progressive breeders dedicated to the continuous improvement of the Blonde d'Aquitaine breed, in a way that provides seedstock with superior breeding values for both the commercial and purebred cattleman.

Since the breed was first introduced into Canada in the early 70s, Canadian breeders have worked hard to bring the breed forward to the 21st Century. Through genetic improvements, the breed has been readily accepted by the commercial cattleman. Through steer trials, bull tests, heifer evaluations (recently added), and performance recording programs, the Blonde breed has shown it has many attributes to offer the beef industry.

With moderate sized calves, these fine-boned lengthy newborns do not begin to muscle up until about 4 - 6 weeks of age, making them an ideal cross for just about any breed.

Blonde bulls create high gaining calves. This is one of our Photo Contest winners. Shellie Wolfe from Dawson Creek, BC took this photo. She couldn't believe how perfectly Woody just stood there and posed for her! As soon as the camera went click, he returned to chasing his cows!Blondes are noted for their high rate of gain which leads to above average weaning weights and one of the best feed conversions in the feedlot, making them a very profitable animal.

The Canadian Blonde d'Aquitaine Association was incorporated under the Live Stock Pedigree Act on July 15, 1970. Blonde d'Aquitaine cattle in Canada are registered through the Canadian Livestock Records Corporation, the national pedigree service for purebred livestock in Canada.

Be sure to contact your Provincial Association for a breeder near you. If you would like a free informational package, please E-mail the Canadian Blonde d'Aquitaine Association.
