About Sardo-Modicana Cattle
are milk cattle bred in the provinces of Cagliari and Oristano, Italy. They are
the result of a cross on a Modicana instead of a Sarda.
Since 1985 the
Registry Office of autochthonous cattle breeds and ethnic groups of limited
diffusion has been founded, in order to protect those Italian cattle breeds at
risk of extinction and to safeguard this genetic heritage. Among them there are
the following breeds: Agerolese, Bianca Val Padana (Modenese), Burlina,
Cabannina, Calvana, Cinisara, Garfagnina, Modicana, Mucca Pisana, Pezzata Rossa
d’Oropa, Pinzgau, Pontremolese, Pustertaler, Reggiana, Sarda, Sardo-Modicana,
The color of the coat is
wine red with some black areas (the ridge of the ears, around the eyes) up to
complete black; darker shades in males. Medium size horns, which are bent first
sideway then high up, with a dark tip.
