This paper makes a review of the key moments in the study of Catalan local breeds, shedding light on the bias that most previous studies have shown by being more ethnographic than ethnological in character, if 'ethnography' is understood to be 'descriptive ethnology'. In other words, they have often failed to reach the level of ethnological analyses, being merely external observations. We also expose some clichés that pivot around the concept of breed, highlighting the importance of going beyond the consideration of breeds as mere repositories of a genetic pool.
