Find out about the Censyra


CENSYRA, the Centre for Animal Selection and Breeding , is located in Villaquilambre (León, Spain) and is run by the Livestock Means and Production Service, the Office of Farming Production, Junta de Castilla y León (Castile and León Regional Government)


The Centre has a staff consisting of a highly qualified team of professionals and ideal facilities. This means that all our efforts can be directed towards the livestock farming sector in order to genetically improve livestock by applying the latest animal selection and breeding techniques. All of this is guaranteed by the introduction of a System of Quality recognition (Regulation UNE-EN ISO 9001-2000), issued by AENOR, which ensures follow-up and examination of all the processes carried out at the Centre so that the products and analyses comply with the specified quality requirements and satisfy clients’ needs.

The main activities of CENSYRA are:

  • Production of bovine and ovine semen doses.  
  • Official bovine, ovine and caprine dairy control: sample analysis and data management.
  • Germoplasm bank.
  • Embryo transfer.
  • Recovery and development of autochthonous breeds in danger of extinction.
  • GENOTYPING laboratory: tests for paternity/filiation and resistance/susceptibility to Scrapie.


Our work ethic is that of continuous collaboration with Livestock Farming Associations in order to offer them the services they require and thus jointly achieve a more efficient and profitable sector.
