The Chianina (pronounced kee-a-nee-na) is an Italian breed of cattle. The Chianina is an ancient breed that originated in the Chianina Valley in central Italy at least 2000 years ago. It is both the tallest and heaviest breed of cattle in the world.  They are also one of the oldest cattle breeds in the world. Mature bulls stand up to 6 feet tall and castrated can reach 6'7" and weigh up to 3,800 pounds. Cows usually weigh 1,800 to 2,300 pounds and stand over 5 feet tall. Chianinas are docile cattle. The Chianina breed is characterized by white hair and a black switch. They can also be a pearly gray color. Chianinas have dark-pigmented skin overlain by short, close-lying, glossy hair. Chianinas were used as models for the Roman sculptures.

In beef production, Chianina cattle are chosen for their growth rate, which may exceed 4.4 pounds per day, the high yield and high quality of the meat, and their tolerance of heat and sunlight. They are good foragers and are resistant to disease and insects to a greater degree than many other domesticated cattle. The ideal slaughter weight is 1,400-1,500 pounds reached at 16-18 months, where the yield may be 65%. The meat is renowned for its quality and nutritional values.
