Ovinnova Operational Group - an innovative business model for transhumance
CAP funds help support long-term sustainability of transhumance shepherding in Spain.
The Ovinnova project focused on improving the competitiveness of transhumance grazing traditions. It configured a new business and management model for livestock farming that contributes to preserving biodiversity while giving incentives for young people to remain and work in rural areas.
The project created jobs for 15 shepherds, out of which four were women.
12 trainees benefitted from the project activities and six of them went on to become shepherds.
