The Murciana-Granadina is well adapted to the hot and dry conditions of the semiarid areas
It is the most productive domestic animal in this climate because of its ability to maintain a high milk production under less than ideal conditions.
The Murcia-Granada flocks graze adverse terrain and feed on the by-products of the agroalimentary industry with a very good transformation index.
This breed produces near 500 kg of milk in 280 days of lactation, with a composition of fat (5.3%) and protein (3.4%) better than other breeds in Mediterranean areas.
Most of milk production is used for cheese production.
