Garvonesa - cow - Portugal

(most common name)
(transboundary/brand name)

(local/other name):
• Raça Bovina Garvonesa

The Garvonesa was bred for its draught power and at one time faced extinction due to the invention and use of tractors and modernization in general.

Concerted efforts by the Parque Natural do Sudoeste Alentejano e Costa Vicentina (PNSACV) have saved the breed thus far. Today, the herdbook and Garvonesa breed is managed by the Associação de Agricultores do Campo Branco (AACB).
