Marchigiana

The Marchigiana hair coat is white. Calves are fawn or wheat colored at birth and will turn white at 3 to 4 months. They have pronounced black skin pigmentation. The tongue, muzzle, and orifices are black. The switch of the tail and area around the eyes has dark, almost black, hair.

The Marchigiana has a light head with short horns. It has a long cylindrical trunk with heavy muscle development, particularly in the buttocks and thighs. The cows weigh between 1,300 and 1,500 pounds, while the bulls will weigh between 2,000 and 2,400 pounds. The cows have excellent maternal capabilities with the calves weighing an average of 80 to 85 lbs. at birth. The breed was developed to do well in rough terrain with hot, dry summers and cold, wet winters on poor quality roughages. This hardiness has been retained through the years.

The Marchigiana breed is widespread throughout the Marches, Labium, Abruzzo and Campania areas of Italy.
