Maine-Anjou originated in the northwestern part of France. The Maine-Anjou name comes from the Maine and Anjou river valleys. The Maine-Anjou is one of the largest breeds developed in France.
The coloring is a very dark red with white markings on the head, belly, rear legs and tail. Black and roan are also very common. White on other parts of the body is also common.
The first Maine-Anjou imported into North America came to Canada in 1969. These cattle were then introduced to the United States through artificial insemination.
Maine-Anjou are also used as a terminal cross and club calf sire. Bulls and females have a good disposition, growth rate and excellent frame.

CUNIA, Born in France in 1969. Heavy selection influence on CUNIA was placed on his predicted calving ease ability. During the height of the “Exotic Era” mating larger European bred bulls to the smaller British lines in the U.S. created calving difficulties. When comparing progeny test results to other imported Maine-Anjou bulls, ease of calving was CUNIA’s strongest attribute.
Beyond his calving ease, perhaps CUNIA’s notoriety extends today most prevalent in the Club Calf Industry. Originally a dual purpose breed, the Maine-Anjou’s breed characteristics of muscling and size appealed to many. CUNIA seemed to “break the mold” of the typical Maine-Anjou, siring moderate sized progeny with improvement in length and uniformity. CUNIA later became known as a maternal legend, producing easy feeding, stylish, heavy muscled cattle for the show ring and pasture.
Maine-Anjou and Club Calf breeders alike easily realized the value of CUNIA and long after his death continued to intentionally line breed CUNIA offspring to maximize his influence in subsequent generations. Descendants of this foundation sire are still in production and high demand thus solidifying the importance of CUNIA on the Beef Industry.
