The Piedmontese cattle breed emerged from Piedmont Italy, the alpine region which is a secluded pocket, naturally protected by the Alps.  Two breeds of cattle, Aurochs and Zebu, through natural selection, have evolved over the centuries to become the Piedmontese breed - Italy's number one beef breed.  In the early 1980's the first Piedmontese were introduced to North America.  Because of America's desire to lower its total fat content in their diets, the Piedmontese Beef has been an increasingly popular option for many.  The combination of naturally lean meat with a tender texture and remarkable flavor in many ways far out-paces competing breeds.
