An animal of a large white breed of cattle, raised for its lean meat.
- Examples are the French Charolais, Limousin, Simmental, and Blonde d' Aquitaine, the Italian Chianina, and the Belgian Blue.
- It's no surprise that beef features prominently in Tuscany, considering that it's home to the Chiana Valley (near the center of Italy), home of the Chianina steer.
- When they compared cows by breed of sire, the ranking order was Maine Anjou, Chianina, Brahman, and Simmental.
