Provacuno, the most prominent beef association in Spain, has been gaining recognition worldwide for its high-quality, natural beef products.

Spain, as one of the leading beef producers in Europe, has a strong competitive advantage due to its strict feeding regulations and environmentally-friendly practices.
- Feeding Practices in Spanish Cattle Farming
European cattle are primarily fed with natural fodder without additives to accelerate their growth, resulting in meat that is free of antibiotics and growth hormones. In Spain, 90% of cattle are grain-fed, while only 10% are grass-fed. The animals are primarily fed with the highest quality cereals such as barley, oats, wheat, corn, and oil seeds, which are free of antibiotics and growth hormones.
