The first Piemontese cattle arrived in the UK in 1988 from the region of Piedmont in Northern Italy and farmers are now realising the potential of the breed as a terminal sire, especially on the suckler cow.
The Piemontese is an early maturing and long living breed with a great adaptability to many different conditions and therefore it can be bred in all types of climates. It adapts perfectly to confined rearing as well as to open or semi-open herding systems.
The Piemontese produces carcasses of considerable value which, thanks to the meat potential and the low fat rates, rank in the highest categories of the EUROP-classification.
