Alistana-Sanabresa - cow - Spain

The Alistana-Sanabresa (aka Raza Alistana-Sanabresa in Spanish) is a recently amalgamated breed; the Alistana and Sanabresa breeds were combined in 1981 (Mason) or 1986 (Felius).

Originally triple-purpose cattle, the Alistana-Sanabresa is closely related to the Sayaguesa and the Mirandesa. Now a beef breed, they are known to produce high yields of good quality meat even on poor pasture. They are housed and given fodder only under extreme environmental conditions.
