The Consortium for the Promotion, the Valuing and the Protection of the Fat Ox from Carrù, more briefly called Consortium for the Protection of the Fax Ox from Carrù, was born on 21st November 2014 on the initiative of the farmers Gianfranco Allione Cardone, Giovanni Rocca, Renato Cogno and Claudio Bottero from Carrù, together with their colleagues Sebastiano Gallo from Clavesana, Gianfranco Tealdi from Mondovì and Dario Porta from Bastia Mondovì, who decided to join together and adhere to the Consortium's Statute. Doctor Giovanni Comino, professional veterinarian with long and solid experience, once director of the ASL CN 1 veterinary clinic and true expert on the Piedmontese breed cattle, was appointed as promoter-associate of the Consortium, as well as its First President.
Also doctor Stefania Ieriti, pro tempore mayor of Carrù, was appointed as promoter-associate of the Consortium as a sign of respect and gratitude, since she played an essential leading and linking role during the constitution of the Consortium. The founder-associates and the promoter-associates constitute the first Board of Directors of the Consortium for the Protection of the Fax Ox from Carrù. They will remain in charge until 31.12.2015. The ordinary associates are the single and associated farmers of the Fat Ox with I.A.P. (Imprenditore Agricolo Professionale) qualification who are regularly affiliated to the social security of the farmers and ask to become members of the Consortium, in compliance with the provisions laid down in its statute. To apply for admission it is necessary to fill in the form “APPLICATION FOR ADMISSION OF ORDINARY ASSOCIATE/MEMBER”. The annual membership fee to the Consortium must be paid in compliance with the provisions laid down in its statute and following all that is indicated as “TERMS OF PAYMENT OF THE MEMBERSHIP FEE”. The Consortium's promoter-associates are the public and private entities who are part of the supply chain of the product “Fat Ox from Carrù” and, since they share the goals of its statute, they commit to support economically the events and expenses of the Consortium through a yearly fee established by its Board of Directors. To apply for admission it is necessary to fill in the form “APPLICATION FOR ADMISSION OF PROMOTER-ASSOCIATE”. The honorary associates of the Consortium are local, provincial, regional, national and international institutions who support the development of the Consortium and its activities by promoting the assignment and payment of annual subsidies, as well as the natural people and/or the legal subjects who have gained benefits from the Consortium and possible other people who contribute to the development, the valuing and the promotion of the Fat Ox from Carrù through their expertise and interest. We define as "Fat Ox from Carrù” the Piedmontese adult castrated bovine bred in the areas and according to the procedures established by the production Regulation approved by the Consortium's Board of Directors during the meeting held on 27 December 2014. The main goal of the Consortium is to qualify, to protect, to promote and to value the Fat Ox from Carrù, by enhancing its breeding, its production, its marketing and its consumption.
