In the first segment of this episode, Brian Foley or Riverine Ranch and Addie Raghaven answer this question, sharing their mutual passion for all things water buffalo. After the break, tune in to hear Bruno Gritti of Quattro Portoni share his thoughts on breeding water buffalo in Northern Italy and developing a new market for water buffalo cheese using the traditional production methods of his native Lombardy.
