A degree in which bovine movement patterns configures a core-periphery structure was studied. Social networks analysis was used - a core-periphery (C/P) continuous model - estimating high correlation and an identification of a core with a discrimination power that outline this model as a tool for the characterization of livestock forms of production and regionalization of measures of sanitary intervention in animal health. This work considers an application of intuitive concepts about the definition of C/P structures that are according to the determinants of the livestock market circuits
