Not only are these cows great mothers and have wonderful full udders, but they are a very beautiful cow as well. They vary in a
redish/orange tone, but have what appears to have eye makeup on with a black lined eye and thick eyelashes you can't help but fall in love with them.
Mature cows have feminine characteristics about the head and neck, with dark eyes, and weigh from 900 to 1300 lbs. The
Tarentaise are primarily a dairy breed in their native France, where test performances show average milk production of 10,000 lbs. with high butterfat. Their udders are strongly attached and
evenly sloped with finger size teats with dark pigmentation. The dark pigmentation found on the Tarentaise offers good protection from sun-related disorders.
