First Name: Fine
Breed: Bretonne Pie Noir
Age: 6 years old
Role: Mascot for the 2017 Paris International Agricultural Show
For 2017, the Paris International Agricultural Show has decided to showcase a rare breed of dairy cow which once nearly disappeared: the Bretonne Pie Noir. A great honour for France's smallest cow. The breeding organisation for that particular breed has selected Fine to represent it.
This is a fantastic opportunity for Cédric Briand – the farmer who reared Fine – to share his passion with visitors to the show.
#FINE "born to be a star"
Fine was born in March 2010 at the “7 chemins” farm in Plessé and is a proud descendant of Akhénaton and Capucine – two fine specimens of the Bretonne Pie Noir breed.
The farmer who reared her – Cédric Briand – is completely objective when he describes her as “a most extraordinary animal". Although she comes across as somewhat discreet, Fine knows what she wants! A beautiful and proud creature, her appearance goes with personality as a leader. She is milked twice a day and calves every year. If she has one fault, it's greed! But that's just as well, since she spends her days out grazing in the open air…
