Este trabajo tiene como objetivo estudiar las ganaderias de lidia a nivel nacional, dada su trascendencia social, zootecnica y economica. Para ello se han realizado encuestas a 177 ganaderos analizando los factores comunes que permitan caracterizar las ganaderias y explotaciones, asi como conocer su problematica y necesidades en un momento delicado para el sector ganadero en general, y las explotaciones de raza bovina de lidia en particular. Los resultados del trabajo muestran que las ganaderias de lidia espanolas tendrian una extension media de 536 ha (la mayoria en propiedad) y tienen 361 animales (habitualmente acompanados de ganado equino, vacuno de carne y porcino iberico), cuyo principal destino es la venta para festejos populares y corridas de toros. Las explotaciones cuentan con asistencia veterinaria fija y una media de tres trabajadores por explotacion (mano de obra cualificada, familiar o asalariada). This work aims to study the herds of Lidia bulls in Spain, given their social, economic and animal husbandry relevance. To achieve this, 177 surveys to farmers were carried out, analyzing the common factors to characterize the farms, and to know their problems and needs in the current socio economic circumstances, which are especially troublesome for the livestock vector in general and for Lidia bulls' farms in particular. The results of this paper show that Lidia farms have on average an extension of 536 ha and have 361 Lidia breed animals (together with equine, beef cattle and Iberian pigs), usually sold for popular bull festivals and bullfights. Farms have regular veterinary assistance and an average of three workers per far, (familiar or waged qualified labor).
