Chianina beef is an ancient and important Italian bovine race originating from the area of Valdichiana in the depths of the Tiber Valley. This bull is characterised by its slight white coat and shading around the eyes. It is the tallest and heaviest breed of cattle. Their horns are short, curved-forward and are usually black in colour in the younger animals but become lighter gradually. The most noticeable physical characteristics of the Chianina cattle is their extensive and well-defined muscling.
