This paper reveals the results of soft systems approach to the farmers of the "Professional Association of Mirandesa Breed" which present a diversity of characteristics in what is referred to the types of family-farm systems, sources of family income, level of education and vocational training, animal management practices and supply chains of "Mirandesa" calves.
