Dynamics of Cattle Production in Brazil

Since there has been an apparent decoupling of cattle herd sizes and deforestation in all Brazilian biomes, reversing the historic correlation over the period These reflect the highest variance in the discriminant model and provide a summary of the separation of the municipalities.

A spatial analysis anualpc the rationale for beef production.

The End of Deforestation ankalpec the Brazilian. Abstract Movement of livestock production within a country or region has implications for genetics, adaptation, well-being, nutrition, and production logistics, particularly in continental-sized countries, such as Brazil. The northeastern region underwent a deceleration in the s similar to the southeast at the end of this period.

In addition, there are possibilities of productivity gains in the beef cattle sector because there are still regions with low efficiency indicators. This occurred despite allegations of a widespread marketplace transition within the beef and soy industries, the main drivers of deforestation, to exclude Amazon deforesters from their supply chains [ 17 ].

Dynamics of Cattle Production in Brazil

This may explain some of the results found in the present study. Cluster and canonical discriminant analyses were performed to further highlight differences between regions in terms of cattle production.


However, this growth was higher in regions where land prices were lower North and Northeast Fig 8. Furthermore, statistical analyses have shown only quantitative changes in herd productivity indicators and associated regions and do not enable a more detailed temporal interpretation to understand the different phenomena and dynamic trends of an activity in the territory.

Dynamics of Sheep Production in Brazil.

In this region, the main zebu breeding centers are localized on the limits of the Midwest, where there is cheap land and perspectives for the expansion of zebu breeds, particularly the Nelore breed. The spatial midpoint of production in the country was calculated for each year to assess the direction of production in the country.

Thus, the use of Geographical Information Systems GIS has resulted in a better and more timely visualization of production systems and can aid in the identification of problematic areas [ 4 ]. Agricultural policy and productivity: From the productive potential of the region became clearer to researchers, leading to the introduction and adoption of technologies that improved productivity, both through animal performance, and using better-adapted Brachiaria grasses Martha et al.

The most expressive growth was initially observed in the Northeast and Midwest regions, which sustained this growth over the period; however, this growth has been slower in recent years Table 2.

Impact of global warming on beef cattle production cost in Brazil. Environmental factors that affect sheep production in Brazil.

Thus, the objective of this article is to study the dynamics of cattle aanualpec in Brazil on a municipal scale and to identify potential areas of strangulation for continued growth and variables that could limit the increase in production and productivity of the cattle in Brazil.


The relative growth rate was calculated using the following equation Eq 1: Brazil is not complacent about the livestock deforestation nexus and the link may only have been weakened temporarily. Mitig Adapt Strat Gl. In fact recent empirical evidence shows an apparent decoupling of agricultural production and deforestation, a factor that sheds new light on the full environmental costs of beef operations. Land-saving approaches and beef production growth in Brazil.

The study finds that the restoration of degraded pastures offers the largest opportunity to curb emissions.

Annualpec of cattle production in Brazil by municipality by period: Use of grazed pastures in the brazilian livestock industry: Lessons and challenges from Brazil. Accessed 25 November Funding Statement These authors have no support or funding to report. Recently, soy production has also anuzlpec into the Amazonian forest [ 16 ]. The acceleration in production in the northern region of Brazil has anualprc strong over the years Fig 3but the southern part of this region and Midwest showed stagnation in the early years of this study.

These states are where the main structure for export of slaughtered animals is located, and they are also the main centers for completing feed-lots, which explains the fact that even with a reduction of the herd, they remain the leading exporters of meat. But how much truth is there in this? Public policies can reduce tropical deforestation:
