This meat is certified as a PGI (Protected Geographical Indication) from extensive and semi-extensive farms in the Pyrenees and Pre-Pyrenees, where the main breed is the Bruna dels Pirineus, though it also covers the Charolais, Limousin and crosses of these. The animals are fed on a mixture of cereals and ground leguminous grains, and graze in the fields. No medication or by-products from other animals are permitted in the fodder.

The calves in this PGI are fattened on the farms on fodder and products such as cereals and leguminous grains. In order to ensure that the muscle is made into quality meat, the animals are slaughtered in abattoirs that are authorized and monitored by the Regulatory Board. They are transported in such a way as to safeguard animal welfare. The calves are slaughtered and butchered traditionally in order to ensure the utmost quality. The meat is pink to bright red and the fat is white to cream coloured. It contains intramuscular fat. It is aged for at least 7 days, making it tenderer and giving it greater organoleptic qualities than other meats on the market.
