The origins of the breed date back 25-30.000 years ago, when bovines populating the territory known today as Piedmont, cross-bred with another species of cattle arriving from Pakistan, the zebu. The crucial moment in the Fassona breed´s history occurred in the second half of the 1800s when a natural genetic mutation took place over the cattles populating a little village in the Langhe area.
This mutation produced the main characteristic in the evolution of the species that distinguishes it from all other Italian breeds: muscular hypertrophy.
Commonly known as double muscling, this refers to the particular development of the muscle fibres, that led to the name in French which then filtered from the Piedmontese dialect as "fasun": Fassona.
The peculiar hypertrophic muscle gives high slaughter yield, great tenderness and flavour to the meat, and the lowest content of fat and cholesterol among all other breeds in the world.
