Local breeds

Fundación Global Nature Works since its creation in conservation programmes for local cattle breeds. These species are a natural heritage that we protect in collaboration with different entities, like the National Institute for Reseach and Farming and Food Technology (INIA), or the Animal Selection and Breeding Centre in Extremadura (CENSYRA). We also belong to the National Association of Merino Sheep Breeders and the National Association of Blanca Cacereña Cows Breeders.

We have in our farms merina negra sheep, blanca cacereña cows, and different hen breeds (negra castellana, andaluza azul, castellana codorniz and andaluza negra barrada).

This programme is developed in our farm “El Baldío”, which is a 232- hectare “dehesa” (agro-sylvo-pastoral farm) located in the municipality of Talaván (Cáceres, Spain). The different projects implemented in this farm include pasture improvement actions with local pulse varieties or the creation of ponds.
