Animal welfare means quality products
Every farmer and Parmigiano-Reggiano maker knows that animal welfare is the key to quality cheese. And since the Società Agricola Saliceto is both a farm and a cheesemaker, the health of our cows always comes first.
So how do we ensure their wellbeing and maintain the optimal conditions for producing quality milk? First of all, we raise them in open pastures on the Tuscan-Emilian Apennines, where they are free to move and graze in peace, breathing clean mountain air.
In addition to being spacious and clean, our stalls are also high-tech and innovative: feeding, births, cleaning, genetics, milking and various parameters are all automatically controlled using special software, ensuring that the animals are always clean, healthy and full, but not overfed.
