The breeding of livstock has been tradition of the “CASALE” since the 1900’s. In 1960 Maremmana had been crossed with bulls imported by the French race Charolaise and so, after eight generations of intersections, Alfred Di Domenico has gotten the recognition in purity of the race Italian Charolaise.

The cows are fertilized in a natural manner by the bulls of the “CASALE” which are regularly enrolled in the “Register bulls enabled to natural fertilization.” (ANACLI) All the animals are registered in the herd book of ANACLI (Association Naz. Breeders Bovine Races Charolaise and Limousine which certifies the quality and assists the farmers in the selection of the race.
