Arrived America in 1608, this unique cow was the first arrival in New France. It was once the most widespread in Quebec, with 300,000 heads. Originally from the north of France, she has a beautiful black dress with brown ends, or the opposite. Upon arrival, a large part of the herd succumbed to the cold, creating a unique breed. Adapted to the climate and its environment, offering a fat and protein-rich milk, a very marbled flesh, the Canadian cow offered a perfect versatility for the needs of farmers. Unfortunately, other breeds, including Holstein, have been favored with industrialization, favoring specialty cows (producing a lot of milk or a lot of meat). To date there are only 200 breeding cows of pure breeds. Today, four cheeses are made.
