Animal Production - Beef

Companhia das Lezírias produces special beef which is very different from other types of beef available in the market because of the specific conditions in which it is produced.

The quality of beef produced in Companhia das Lezírias is the result of a number of factors:

  • Organic farming
  • Produced exclusively within Companhia das Lezírias
  • Wholly produced in a protected area (Special Protection Zone of the Natural Reserve of the Tejo Estuary)
  • Two indigenous cattle pure-breds (Preta and Mertolenga)
  • Extensive system
  • Cows grazing the whole year round (in both the marshland and heath)
  • Very specific pastures
  • In-house production of fodder used
  • Specific nutritional formulas adapted to the fodders used
  • Electronic traceability of the breeding animals
