Belgian Blue heifers imported in 1994 to the Animal Research Institute established the first herd in the Czech Republic. From this herd were selected three sires for the breeding proposes that have been used both in natural service and insemination too. At the beginning of 1998 this herd finished its activity with Belgian Blue cattle. At the 1999 new breeders imported embryos from Belgium and the Netherlands. Between the years 2000 and 2003 seven bulls from Czech herds have passed successfully the test at performance test stations and have been selected for breeding. Belgian Blue bulls are used especially for crossing with dairy cattle, but very often also as a terminal bull for other beef breeds.
