Start date: Jun 30, 2008, End date: Jun 29, 2013 PROJECT  FINISHED 

Over the last few years, France and Wallonia developed an adapted framework for the development of Bleue Mixte (Bleue du Nord in France and the Blanc-Bleu Belge mixed type in Belgium). However, to help livestock breeders preserve these endangered populations, it was crucial to ignore borders and establish a common structure for selection/conservation programmes. The creation of a brand image also improves farm profitability. To foster economic growth for the farms, scientific and technical collaborations were created around a common, rare beef race: the Bleue du Nord/ Blanc-Bleu Belge mixed type. The cross-border group provides a common guideline for the selection. It centralises and interprets the collected data to assess the genetic potential of the animals.
