The production and slaughtering area of the P.G.I. CORDEREX is located in the towns of the Autonomous Community of Extremadura. The Dehesa Extremeña is a unique environment, characterized by the perfect combination between grasslands and cultivation areas, with half-wooded and sparse forest parts, where holm oaks, cork oaks and gall oaks grow. The pastureland of Extremadura takes up to 1,800,000 hectares, equal to the 43% of the Autonomous Community territory, belonging almost 1,000,000 hectares to wooded pastureland. The genetic origin of the Lamb of Extremadura is the native merino breed. Its own characteristics (great hardiness, high herd and maternal instincts and a perfect integration in our ecosystem) contribute to the pasturelands of Extremadura defense and to the maintenance of the environment and the economic-rural climate.
