History in Austria:

Since the 90ies a few farmers are breeding those Belgian cattle, who are known for their extreme muscling and high beef yield. They are quite important for crossbreeding (on both dairy and beef) so every year a few bulls are bought from AI stations. An important goal in the purebred herds is to increase the vitality of the calves.

Current numbers (2017):
