Remarks Officially recognized as an autochthonous Spanish breed for special protection in the Spanish catalogue of livestock breeds. Presently, farmers, technicians and scientists have coordinated actions for the characterization, conservation and promotion of the breed and its products. This work is carried out by the University of Córdoba, the Biological Station of Doñana (CSIC), the Breeders Association and the Provincial Government of Cordoba. Genetic characterization of the breed is under development, at the same time a germplasm bank has been initiated. The sires to be included in the bank are under evaluation. Also the morphological characterization has started for the in situ animals. In the near future the productive characterization will start at the testing station and in situ, with a view to obtain a quality label for its products.
