Rosola di Zocca
Since the 1950’s, the population of Bianca Modenese cows has shrunk to the point of near extinction in some regions. Today’s population measures in the 100’s. Rosola di Zocca is a seven member cooperative of small farms that use a five-year rotation of meadow pasture to maintain a biodiversity of feed that gives strong mountain meadow essence to the milk. Each farm produces two White Cow wheels each day. The White Modenese Cow milk is particularly suitable for cheese making. Not only does it have an excellent fat content and to protein index ratio, the high frequency of the K-casein gene B makes it easier to process during the complex preparation that leads to the creation of Parmigiano Reggiano.
