The Mezzano breeds the ancient Ligurian cattle breed, Cabannina, in order to use the local fodder resources in the most sustainable way.
This bovine, small in size but with a great capacity of ingestion, is ideal to transform forage into useful food for man, such as milk, cheese, meat and cold cuts.
It is enough to think that with an adult bovine we can produce 30 quintals of milk, equivalent to 3 quintals of cheese, or 2 quintals of meat.
In terms of environment, an adult cattle that feeds almost exclusively on fodder subtracts more than 30 quintals of CO2 per year and frees about 10 for its metabolism.
In terms of landscape, a cow makes pleasant and cared for about 2 hectares of land.
