Recent measurements of Z boson production using data collected at a center-of-mass energy of 7 TeV by the LHCb experiment are presented. These measurements test QCD and electroweak theory and can provide constraints on the proton parton distribution functions. Inclusive and differential cross-section measurements for Z bosons, decaying into di-muon, di-electron, and di-tau final states, and a measurement of the production of jets of particles in association with a Z boson are presented. The results are found to be in agreement with theoretical predictions with recently calculated parton distribution functions.
