A modern French breed of large domestic beef cattle. It was created in 1962 by merging three blonde breeds. Since about 1970 it has been selectively bred specifically for beef production. It is the third-most numerous beef breed of France, after the Charolais and the Limousine.
The Blonde d'Aquitaine is wheat- or cream-coloured, varying from dark to very light fawn, the surround of the eyes and the area round the muzzle is paler. The skin is white, and the muzzle and mucous areas pale.
