We pay great attention to the well-being of our animals and the quality of their diet, giving priority to hay.
The organic farm "La Sisile" has chosen to invest a lot of energy in the search for animal welfare.
The quantity and quality of the space available to the cows is a fundamental aspect.
Our animals were born and raised in a healthy and natural way in our stable in Talmassons (Udine). The barn is organized in such a way as to ensure the welfare of the cows. The doors are always open, and they decide when to stay sheltered and when to graze outdoors.
In the summer (from May to September) a part of our farm moves to the mountain pasture at the Malga Montasio, which is located in the heart of the plateau where Montasio cheese was born in the 13th century. With the high summer temperatures, cows that do not go to the pastures have much more covered space. Towards evening, as the temperature drops, they go outside.
Being in the sun is good for cows, because it helps them strengthen their bone structure. It's good for us too, because only cows that live in the sun produce and transfer vitamin D to milk. The main function of vitamin D is to control the metabolism of calcium and phosphorus necessary for bones, muscles and nervous tissue. It is essential for children under 6, and for pregnant or breastfeeding women.
