|Resumo:||Family-farm systems are largely dominant in the rural communities of northeastern Portugal. These systems can be organized based on the interrelations and the diversity of its characteris5cs such as farmer's age, farm dimension, external incomes, productive orientation, or livestock type and number (1). A signiﬁcant number of the regional family-farm systems raise Mirandesa cows, a local cattle breed classiﬁed as endangered in 1994. Since 1995 the Mirandesa veal enjoys a Protected Designa5on of Origin (PDO). The carcasses of weaning calves, that aren’t PDO, are currently paid 4 €/kg. The PDO producers receive 5,25€/Kg, a 31% higher premium price. Since 1998, a producers group guarantees the sale of all production. In the last decade, the national inﬂation average was 2.45%; the group achieved a gross margin on the sale price, on average, 1% above inﬂa5on. However, despite the commercial success of the PDO, the Mirandesa cow and the farmers numbers continues to decline.|
