The tradition for calf farming on the Italian peninsula dates back to very ancient times. Indeed, some etymological studies indicate that the very word ITALY comes from the term Víteliú meaning: “land of young bovines”. Calf breeding for Italian white veal production takes place mainly in the area known as the Po Valley where the majority of the largest and most important Italian dairy-cattle farms are located. The milk from Frisona italiana breed is the main ingredient for renowned aged cheeses such as Parmigiano Reggiano and Grana Padano. The male veals of Frisona italiana born by dairy cows are therefore used for the production of what is known as white veal.
