Piedmontese cattle are missing the myostatin gene which works in traditional cattle to inhibit their overall muscle mass and are often described as "double muscled". Because they develop extra muscle, they develop very little fat. The beef remains tender and juicy without the heavy marbling of traditional cattle breeds.
Piedmontese are not genetically modified for this unique double muscling, the absence of the myostatin gene is a natural evolution of the breed.
