Comparative studies were conducted in West Germany, Belgium, Switzerland, East Germany and France. As the results became known, breeders and milk producers began adding Holstein cows to their herds or improving them by cross-breeding with a Canadian Holstein bull. More than Canadian cows have been delivered to France since 1965. In 1973 alone 506 cows were sold to France and Canadian embassy trade officers in Paris said they believe the record will be broken in 1974 which so far has seen 130 Canadian cows sold to French breeders or farmers. Compared with one French breed the Canadian Holstein has produced 31 per cent more milk and calved 78 days earlfer. Comparative studies in Belgium has shown that the Holstein's milk production exceeds the milk production of Belgian cows by 36 per cent. Similar results were obtained in East Germany.
