Summary

This study presents the Betizu as a variety of Pyrenean Cattle, which come from the Old Basque Race. The type from the coast was different and improved and the type from the mountain was smaller. Cattle selection, improvement of sperm providers and feeding has given us what today is called the Pyrenean Cattle Race in such a way that the Betizu has stopped evolving and has adapted to a mountain habitat, Adarra Mountain. They are small, females are 1,05 m. at the shoulder and have a net weight of 150 kg.
