Currently left out his ability to work, the podolica is used for milk and meat.

It produces a very rich milk fat, which gives the Caciocavallo Podolico, prince of cheeses spun.
The meat, tasty, has a content of lipids (fats) and cholesterol slightly lower, but the pasture gives a lot of Conjugate Linoleic Acid (CLA) which is one of the most important healthy quality of this kind of meat.
There currently are about 30,000 subjects enrolled in the herd
