Livestock production, through the purchase and sale of steers, is another activity that has seen some growth in Herdade da Fonte Coberta, as it allows for a greater and more efficient use of non-planted areas, now employed as grazing fields.

The cattle raising activity takes place throughout the estate's extensive grazing areas, which are ideal for raising livestock; currently, the estate has a stock of approximately 100 breeding animals of the Limousin breed, as well as 200 steers.
