Transhumant cattle have been introduced to a specific area of the Prat de Cabanes-Torreblanca. Grazing in this area is expected to control the excessive growth of reed beds. This traditional method had been abandoned years ago, but the return of herds to the Prat we are confident that the terrain will regain its diversity and return to a heterogeneous ecosystem.
The cows are prevented from invading other areas or escaping from the wetland by means of electric fencing. This Asturian breed is known to be well adapted to marshy conditions, and to date have shown no signs of hoof damage or weight loss during the first months in this habitat.
