Romagnola Cattle originated in the Emilia-Romagna region of Italy. They are bred primarily for beef production and were often used as draft animals in the past. Some animals were exported to Scotland in the early 1970's and today the breed is present in Great Britain, Ireland, North and South America, Australia, New Zealand and Africa. The Romagnola has an outstanding growth capacity that is comparable to the Chianina and Marchigiana.
