(most common name)
• Francaise Frisonne
also named (English):
• French Friesian
• French Holstein-Friesian
The Prim’Holstein originated with Dutch Black Pied cattle that were imported into France in the 18th century.
Until 1952, the breed was called the Hollandaise pie-noire. Then it was called the Française Frisonne Pie-Noire (FFPN) from 1952-1990.
France started using Holsteins to grade with their Friesian cattle during the 1970’s and 1980’s. In 1992 the name was officially changed to the ‘Prim’Holstein’.
