Facts and figures about South Tyrolean meat

Farmers and animals

Here are a few facts about rearing beef with the seal of quality:
  • 215 local farmers produce South Tyrolean beef.
  • The farms are small and mostly family-run. 30 % have max. 4-5 ha of farmland.
  • An average of 2 animals are fattened per farm and year. 
  • The animals are allowed to graze outside at least 60 days a year.

You can also freeze beef to preserve it for longer. However, pork only keeps its taste for 4-6 months, beef for at least 6-8 months.
