RECTA: Cuban network of animal traction
The Cuban Network of Animal Traction (RECTA) was launched at a workshop on animal traction held at the University of Ciego de Avila from 9 to 11 December 2000. This was the culmination of a process that started with the Third International Congress on Animal Traction organised by the Agricultural Engineering Research Institute (IIMA) and held in Havana in 1998.

Spanish is the official language of the network, but many members can communicated in English
