does anyone has any experience with any Italian breed that it's not Chianina?

Could be with: Romagnola, Marchgiana, Maremmana or Podolica.

I will do a research on these breeds and think that for the meat producer will be usefull to use any of these breeds.

As a member of the Association of Italian Breeders in Mexico, I visited the web site of the ANABIC and it will very interesting to cattleman that sells his steers by the pound to visit it because of the weight gains you could obtain with the crossbreding of these breeds specially using Romagnola or Marchigiana, it will explain it better than me <A HREF="http://www.anabic.it" TARGET="_blank">http://www.anabic.it</A>, look at Technical Service

thanks,

that doesn't sound too bad. my father is looking into getting his own, double muscled breedeing bulls in Indonesia, but the problem is calving, but with this kind of weight, i think that a marchiagana cow, out of a NeloreXlimousin cow would be able to provide us with some good blood (meat and relative calving ease). we are going to do the same thing for Belgian blue as well. see what comes out the best.

It sounds like to be a great crossbreed, I have use Romagnola Bulls in my Simmental-Nelore commercials and I really get good weaning weights and good replacement heifers. I had just A.I. some of the Simmies-Nelores with Marchigiana so I'm just waiting for the results. I had tried Belgians but I really didn't like them to small and at weaning weights not to much difference, in our meat market Belgian crosses won't work.

we'll be sure to try that cross in Indo. But i don't follow you on the belgians being smaller. i get a minimum of 750kg (73% dressing at least) at 20 months old here in belgium. that is not small.

we should talk in the future of our experience with Marchigiana crosses, I'm really convince that they should work better than my Romagnola crossbreeds
