The millennial custom of moving goats and sheep to provide them with food is currently an effective and sustainable way of keeping mountains and ravines clean. An adult goat ingests between 1.5 and 2.5 kg of dry plant matter daily (350 to 1500 g of leaves and scrub shoots). Adult sheep, grazing, can consume 2 to 3 kg of dry matter daily (scrub and woody species). A way of converting dangerous vegetable waste, of which nobody deals, into a delicious resource, of proximity and nutritionally excellent, the meats of suckling pig, sheep and goat of European origin.
The next days 22 and 25 July in the towns of Cervera de Pisuerga (Palencia) and Salamón (Crémenes, León) respectively, the public presentation of the Ovinnova project will take place. Its objective is to convert transhumance and grazing into a viable business model that contributes to preserving biodiversity.
