The yokes for the cattle used in farming (cows and oxen) are ancient yet essential implements for traditional agriculture. In the region of Castille-Leon, as in most other areas in the Iberian Peninsula, farmers use a kind of yoke which is tied to the horns of the animals. This kind of yoke presents a rich variety of local types, and functional variants within these types, as a result of its wide geographical distribution.Los yugos con que se unce el ganado vacuno de labor son aperos muy antiguos e imprescindibles en la agricultura tradicional. En Castilla y León, como en la mayor parte de la Península Ibérica, se emplea el yugo cornal, que presenta una rica tipología geográfica, con variantes funcionales dentro de cada tipo.
