In Spain there is a National Association of Breeders of Equine Breed of Hispano-Breed, of the 500 winners that form this association more than 400 are from Leon, who are betting strongly for the meat of foal taking advantage of the pastures for the feeding of the Equines, which cover 80% of the nutritional needs of a mare’s annual feeding, and giving life and business to the most disadvantaged rural areas. They have more than six thousand heads of cattle distributed by the region of Babia, Laciana, Riaño, Boñar or Lillo. It should be noted that the Hispano-Breton breed is in danger of extinction since 1997 and in Babia is where we can find the best specimens.
The meat can be bought in the San Emiliano cooperative and in the butcher shops of León and Ponferrada. In addition to the fresh meat you can buy sausage, sausage and dried meat.
