Dante Dall’Aglio comes from a family that started breeding dairy cattle for the Parmigiano-Reggiano consortium in the 1930s. The first farmer in the Dall’Aglio family was also called Dante; he had just a few dairy cows and he was succeeded by his children Evio, Renzo and Elsa.
The farm continued to grow as the years went by...
A new cowshed was built for 100 dairy cattle. The milk they produced was sold to the cooperative dairy.
The cowshed was extended to accommodate twice the number of cows.
The cowshed was extended again to accommodate calves. The hay barn was built.
A new automated milking system was added.
The farm was modernised so the shed can now house 300 dairy cattle.
The foundations were dug for the dairy.
2-22-2004: the private dairy was officially opened and assigned the registration number
The farm expanded the areas where it grows hay for its animals
Nowadays, the farm and the dairy are run by the third generation:
The farm has 700 dairy cattle, with 400 lactating cows, whose milk is used exclusively to make Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese in the farm's dairy. The cattle are fed with the hay and grain they grow themselves in their 618 acres of farmland.
