The cattle here in the 'Bearn' region are called 'Blonde Aquitaine' Addie and they are big beautiful pale-corn beasts. Hence the ' Blonde' ( french spelling ) Used for beef mostly with the male calves for veal. They have a good life here with lots of big open fields to munch in and are well looked after.

France, which is very rural, lush, temperate, near to the Pyrenees mountains and the atlantic coast and the [COLOR="rgb(46, 139, 87)"]South of france[
