The Modenese White Cow, a dual-purpose animal, historically contributed to both milk and meat production while aiding in fieldwork. It distinguishes itself among dairy breeds with its robustness, longevity, fertility, and docile nature. Recognizable by its milky white coat with gray hues in males, medium-length horns, and a distinctive pink, V-shaped split on the slate gray muzzle. The breed likely evolved from cattle resembling red cows, crossed with gray podolica-type cattle.
