About Grey Alpine CattleAbout Grey Alpine Cattle



Grey Alpine (orrnGrauvieh) cattle in Italy are traditionally widespread in Alto Adige and in thernDolomite valleys of Trentino and Bellunese. In the last few years new breedingrncenters have emerged even outside this area, such as in the provinces of Udine,rnComo, Torino and Campobasso. Of the estimated 25,000 head of cattle aboutrn16,000 are registered in the Herd Book. The National Association of Breeders ofrnGrey Alpine cattle - A.N.A. GREY ALPINE - was founded on 19 June 1980 (www.grigioalpina.it). This breed represents the link between the mountain environment and itsrnresources on one hand and a quality product on the other.

rnrnThe animals arernof medium size and weight and have a correct locomotor apparatus with veryrnstrong hooves.

rnrnThe Grey Alpinernis a typical breed of mountain cattle that gives excellent production of milkrnand meat. They are rustic, frugal, have a strong instinct for finding their ownrnfood, and are able to convert even coarse vegetation efficiently. The GreyrnAlpine is a breed with long life expectancy and excellent fertility.

rnrnThe quality ofrnmilk produced by the Grey Alpine Breed makes it suitable both forrntransformation into cheese and for direct consumption. Functional checksrncarried out in 2007 gave an average production of 5,150 kg of milk with 3.72%rnfat and 3.36% of protein. This production should be regarded as decidedly good,rntaking account of the medium size and weight of the animals and of thernnon-intensive breeding farm conditions.

rnrnThe Grey Alpinernhas good "weight gaining" qualities. This is especially marked amongrnmedium-to-heavy bullocks, which have an average daily gain of about 1,200 g,rnvery good carcass shape characteristics, production on slaughter of around 58%rnand excellent meat quality.
