The meetings with sheep breeders in EXTREMADURA and ANDALUCÍA for the Transhumance campaign 2021 are going on
Recently, representatives of the Grupo Operativo Ovinnova met sheep breeders from Torrecampo (region of Los Pedroches, Córdoba), Sierra de Fuentes (region of Montánchez and Tamuja, Cáceres) and Villanueva de la Serena and Cabeza del Buey (the last two places belonging to the region of La Serena).
The aim of the meetings was to present the Project of the Grupo Operativo to the sheep breeder in different areas in Andalucía y Extremadura in order to invite them to participate in the transhumance campaign 2021 which the Grupo Operativo is organizing intensely so that their sheep herds enjoy the unsurpassable conditions for food and animal welfare in the mountain pastures of the provinces of León and Palencia until the beginning of fall relieving the dehesas in the South from livestock and giving them a rest during Summer. In the North, the pasturing of the mountains meadows helps to avoid bush fires and to preserve very important habitats.
Therefor, sheep breeder who have participated in previous years in the transhumance assisted the meeting in order to inform first-hand their positive experiences and how transhumance has contributed to improve their farmland not only economic-wise but also concerning the health of their herds.
It is intended to meet with sheep breeders from the region of the Sierra de Aracena (Huelva) and Sierra de Gata (Cáceres) in the next days.
