Welcome to the gascon cattle homepage

vache_veau.jpgWelcome in the heart of the Pyrenees, cradle of "GASCON": nursing bovine race adapted well to the difficult conditions... and thus to the others!

The extreme rusticity acquired by generations dedicated to traction, makes it possible these cows as well to spend 5 months in mountain pasture (in altitude, with strong variations in temperatures), in vast herds, delivered to themselves, to make profitable the intensive zones of the plains of the Garonne. While having reduced maintenance costs, the Gascon one produces a calf by cow and per annum, in particular thanks to its maternal qualities. Its meat of a savour and an exceptional smoothness, coupled with the presence of a RED LABEL Gascon Ox (certifying a breeding of quality and traditional type) does nothing but accentuate its fame. The genetic selection tries to improve existing it: breast feeding, rusticity, fruitfulness, the quality of the meat. Some is your need, this updated site permanently, will provide you the brief replies to all your questions about the race, of the embryo to the meat, the stockbreeder to the consumer, and the last topicality will give you.

On April 2nd at Gascon racial station of Villeneuve of Paréage (PEPIRAG S.A.S.) in Ariège, 100% of the heifers proposed immediately found taking!

Never as many different departments bought: in addition to Ariège, Aude, Haute-Garonne, Tarn, Hautes-Pyrénées, Pyrénées Orientales, young stockbreeders in installation in dairy reconversion of Aveyron (12), Herault (34), Loire (42) and especially the Pyrenees Atlantic (64).

Youth was the major characteristic noticed by all in the public.

The average costs finally were of 1,855 € for the heifers with echography favorable of the 3/20/2014 (1 700 € with 2,150 €), and 1,644 € for the ready ones to cover (1 400 € with 1,900 €).

The Genetic indices (encouragement for the stockbreeders to adhere to the VA4 of Cattle Growth) obviously were studied and make the difference.

The health one was also irreproachable, just as the character: this explains also the passion.

The next series will return on Wednesday, April 30: let us guarantee that these good performances, which return directly to birthplace breeding, will still encourage these to place their best genetics in racial station.
