Recent LHCb measurements of W and Z0 boson production cross-sections, cross-section ratios and jet production in = /γ*Z0 → μ+μ−events are reported. Due to the high rapidity coverage and the low momentum trigger thresholds, the LHCb detector can probe previously unexplored regions of the (x; Q2) space. This allows to further constrain the Parton Density Functions of the proton. Electroweak bosons are reconstructed in several leptonic decay channels, using up to 1 fb−1 of pp collisions at √s = 7.
