Laticauda are a
white Italian sheep descended from Northern Africa sheep that have developed
many of their modern characteristics from subsequent crossbreeds with sheep
from the Apennines. Most likely they were imported to Italy at the times of
Charles III. They are raised for both meat and milk. Their milk is high-quality
and used to produce high-quality pecorino cheese.
They are also
known as Barbaresca campana, Bastarda arianese, Beneventana, Casalinga,
Casereccia, Coda chiatta, Nostrana.
