• Del País
• Raza Alistana-Sanabresa

The Alistana-Sanabresa is a recently amalgamated breed; the Alistana and Sanabresa breeds were combined in either 1981 (Mason, Encyclopedia 2016) or 1986 (Felius, 1995).

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.
