History in Austria:

The Italian beef breed was imported to Austria in the 90ies. Until today population size is relatively small but stable. Bulls are used for crossbreeding not only in suckler cow herds but also in dairy herds. Therefore one AI station is constantly offering semen of Austrian bred Piedmontese bulls.

Current numbers (2017):
Pedigree herds 3
Herdbook cows 10
Herdbook heifers 3
Herd sires 2
