The Retinta beef
These animals are truly unique because, like us humans, they love to spend their time on the beach. But she also makes her deep red fur and her magnificent horns special. The Retinta breed was born from a combination of different Spanish cattle breeds. Cattle with reddish fur have existed on the Iberian Peninsula since ancient times.
