In Extremadura, one of the better known livestock breeding regions of the country, the area of Ibores, because of its special orography of broken relief and high levels of rain, has always been considered the best place to breed goats. These goats, then, have always been quickly associated with the people of that land: transhumant goat shepherds that grazed their livestock on the hills and oak groves. The milking cycle would begin in fall, then intensifying in spring and finishing in summer. The cheese was made just after each milking, generally done twice a day. Today, there are flocks whose production is no longer seasonal, so that milk can be obtained all year long.
