Maine-Anjou breed (Rouge des Prés)

The Maine-Anjou cattle hails from the historical province of “Anjou” (Pais de la Loire) in France, situated along the lower Loire, South-West of Paris. Its capital Angers is located between the world-renowned Le Mans (known for motorsports) and the city Nantes, situated by the mouth of the river Loire into the Atlantic Ocean.

In this climatically favored region lie the breeding origins of the Maine-Anjou breed, also called “Rouge des Prés” (red pastures).

In Germany, Maine-Anjou farms can mainly be found in the spa town of Bad Wünneberg in North Rhine-Westphalia and at the heart of the Viking territory in Schleswig-Holstein in Busdorf.
