local/other name (Galician):
• Raza Vianesa
The Vianesa, a dairy/beef breed, is indigenous to Viana del Bollo in the southeast of Orense province in the autonomous community of Galicia in northwest Spain.
The Vianesa is closely related to the Alistana-Sanabresa. The Mirandesa and Swiss Brown have also been an influence. There have been imports of Frieiresa used since 1960; also, of Rubia Gallega and Limousin for a few unspecified years.
The Vianesa coat is brown and bulls are darker. Because the extremities darken in various patterns within the breed, different patches of darkening are distinctive and have specific names.
