About Vicentina Sheep
are white and raised for meat. They are a variety of Lamon Sheep. They are found
on the Asiago Plateau (Vicenza Province, Lombardy Region, northern Italy).
Formerly, they were also in the Chiampo Valley. Most sheep in the area are in
family holdings of only three to four head. In the winter they are stall-fed,
but during the summer are put into bands of 700–1.000 sheep to graze in the
mountains above the plateau.
Vicentina sheep are
similar to the Lamon, except that dark coloration on their face and legs is
more extensive, and the convex profile of the head is less pronounced than that
of the Lamon.
