  Bazadaise beef has a well deserved reputation for fine flavoured, low fat and well marbled meat.In France it has achieved the coveted 'Label Rouge', an internationally recognised accreditation for the achievement of consistently high standards in food production.

  Bazadaise adult cattle range in colour from dark to light grey. Calves are born a pale beige colour and remain so until about 3 months old. They have exceptional length with excellent conformation and muscular development with a broad back and a well-rounded rump. A fine bone structure produces exceptional yields as a pure or cross.
