Livestock / Animal Husbandry / Cattle body forms
Spanish term or phrase: subconvexilíneo
From a document describing a particular breed of cattle. Describing the shape of the cow/bull. I would guess that it means that the underside is just a bit convex (a photo shows that, with its back being just a bit concave), but how is it said in English? Context:

"Conformación general.- Responde a la de un conjunto de perfil recto o ligeramente subconvexilíneo, de aspecto global equilibrado, dotado de longitud, profundidad, y cierta ampulosidad y anchura."
