Italian term or phrase: Blu Belga; Pezzato Nero; Bruno
Sono razze di mucche.

English translation:Belgian Blue
Explanation:
... is a recognized breed (my grandfather raised them). "Pezzato" means "dappled," and so "pezzato nero" would be "dappled black", and "bruno," of course, would be "brown" (or possible "dappled brown," depending on the context). I wasn't able to find any specific breed with "dappled" in its name; however, the following Web site might be useful. -- Best, Heather Clifford

Belgian Blue, Friesian and Bruna


Explanation:
I work with an Irish farmer who exports cattle to Spain and Italy. I know these terms from the Italian customers. As far as I know there is no English equivalent of Bruna. It is a breed from the Piemonte region of Italy.
