Montbeliard breed was formed Frache-Comté region, Swiss-owned farms came in France in the eighteenth century. In terms of origin threaded Montbeliard breed comes from Bos taurus Frontosus, part of Group races in red spotted, Simmental type.
Herd-book was opened on December 2, 1889, and official control of milk production is from 1923.
The objective of our work is to determine the production potential of heifers imported from France in the Moara Domneasca experimental farm, University of Agricultural Sciences and Veterinary Medicine Bucharest. The study was conducted on a herd of 20 cows mothers in France. In the analysis performed we found that dairy production has varied between 3823 kg milk a cow located in first lactation at 11299 kgin six lactation. The average yield achieved in a normal lactating mothers heifers is 6921 kg milk, 3.66% fat and 3.23% protein. Age at first calving of cows mothers are on average 32 months.
