They are mainly fed on cereals grown in the fields of the province of Teruel and other neighbouring areas, which give them a healthy, natural nutrition.Duroc breed produces high quality meat with an ideal intramuscular fat content, while meat provided by Landrace and Large-White crossbreeds is characterised by its juiciness, texture, conformation, and colour.
