Resumen : BON cattle derived from the domestic animals brought by Christopher Columbus on his second trip have gone through 500 years of adaptation to the tropical coffee producing areas of Colombia. This breed posseses several important characteristics such as: tameness, maternal ability, longevity, high fertility, increased productivity in F1 crosses, and ability to take advantage of rough relatively poor pastures. These qualities together with recent molecular findings suggesting high genetic variability and resistance to viral and bacterial infections make of this breed, now classified as “at risk” of extinction, an invaluable genetic resource from which a national cattle industry adapted to our tropical conditions could be established. The aim of this review it is to compile information about this breed and indicate some research perspectives to the light of advances made at University of Antioquia demonstrating the genetic potential of this breed, that maybe has not been expressed before due to the husbandry conditions to which it has been subjected throughout the five centuries.
