The Limia cattle are from Galícia, in northwestern Spain and are a large-sized breed as well. Limia cattle also have clear difference in coat colour and shoulder height between males and females. With their slender bodies they move with great ease, and they are able to survive on poor forage. Galícia is relatively cold and wet, so the animals are used to living in a wet country, with cold and snowy winters, like in the more northern parts of Europe.
