The sheep-breeding sector has always played an important role in the economy of Zamora. Not only does the area possess one of the most uniform sheeps stocks in terms of breeds, above all churra and castellana, but support is also given to the growing presence of the processing industry.
As the Specific Denomination states, the "Lechazo de Castilla y León" lambs belong to the churra, castellana an ojalada breeds and their diet consists exclusively of mother's milk. These three indigenous breeds are the only ones able to produce the meat which is termed "Lechazo de Castilla y León". The young lamb meat, or "cordero lechal" as it is known locally, is pearly white or pale pink, has a slight fragrance, a smooth flavour and is tender and juicy. The maximum weight at the time of slaughter is 12 kg and the maximum age is 35 days.
In Zamora, the animals come from approved cattle farms which are registered with the "Indicación Geográfica Protegida" which exists throughout the entire province. They are identified by means of a label and four temperature-resistant bands which guarantee their quality. They all bear the logo of the Regulating Council for "Lechazo de Castilla y León".
