Even so, intensification has provided a basis for Brazil to offer international lessons and to use the gains as part of its voluntary climate commitments.

Dynamics of Cattle Production in Brazil

Results Several different movements have been observed over the years: Furthermore, the major drivers of sustainability in agriculture were the demands of the food market. Expansion was also supported by government development programs for economic growth that focussed on the expansion and establishment of agriculture in frontier regions of the Cerrado Brazilian savannah and parts of the Amazon Martha et al. Impact of global warming on beef cattle production cost in Brazil.

These should alter the incentives to clear forest for pasture, discourage land speculation, and increase the accountability for land management practices if intensification of the cattle sector is to avoid new deforestation and displace production from low-yield, extensive cattle production systems in frontier regions of the Brazilian Amazon [ 12324 ].

Movement of livestock production within a country or region has implications for genetics, adaptation, well-being, nutrition, anualped production 213, particularly in continental-sized countries, such as Brazil. Conclusions The acceleration of the cattle herd growth in Brazil has been increasing from to Thus, there was a gap between technological innovation and productivity.

In these regions, there was an incentive to rear beef cattle, particularly for the installation of large meat processors and the implementation of large projects producing meat for export. Market-oriented cattle traceability in the Brazilian Legal Amazon.


National Center for Biotechnology InformationU. De Oliveira Silva, R. However, it could not be established to what extent the discontinuation of cattle production induced the expansion of pastures in other areas, thereby potentially resulting in indirect deforestation. Please review our privacy policy. Use of satellite images for geographical localization of livestock holdings in Brazil.

Deforestation in all Brazilian biomes has fallen to its lowest rate since satellite monitoring began Lapola et al. On the other hand, although do not occur growth in the North region, with the current flock and the structure of agro-industrial complex linked to the beef chain, there will be a demand for increased production in the livestock sector, which can be achieved by increasing productivity.

This may explain some of the results found 213 the analpec study. The expansion of intensive agriculture and ranching in Brazilian Amazonia In: Funding Statement These authors have no support aunalpec funding to report. Both increase and relative increases as well as acceleration of production are observed in the Midwest, Southeast and Northern regions, with only a few municipalities in each of these regions are responsible for these changes.

Improving the use of current agricultural lands could meet production demands and spare natural habitats in Brazil. 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 ]. Discriminant canonical analyses were used to identify regions and municipalities that behaved in a different manner.

Cattle production in Brazil from to was spatialized, and the annual midpoint of production was calculated. Can 1 and Can 2 are the first anuaopec canonical scores for each municipality. Add new comment Your name. They may relate to the technological or organizational aspects of the main processes involved in the production cycle. This study considered all municipalities in total in five regions of Brazil.

Furthermore, statistical analyses have shown only quantitative changes in herd productivity indicators and associated anuallec and do not enable a more detailed temporal interpretation to understand the different phenomena and dynamic trends of an activity in the territory.


It also fuels the need for credit programs as well as research and development activities to support intensification goals [ 3 ]. This reflects the differences in production aims and market opportunities in the two production chains.

Amazonia and Global Change.

Braz J Sci Techn. The needs to expand the agricultural frontier in Brazil, the entry of foreign abattoir industries and the opening of markets to export processed anualepc to the United States have been motivated by the livestock sector and their migration to land areas at lower costs. However, these results indicate that the potential migration of cattle production reached further than the neighboring expansion regions.

Dynamics of Cattle Production in Brazil

These reflect the highest variance in the discriminant model and provide a summary of the separation of the municipalities. Technological innovation and entrepreneurship in animal production. Table 3 Clusters of Brazilian municipalities according to the relative growth in the number of cattle standard error and the percentage of the total herd from to in 5-year periods.

Accessed 25 November Several different movements have been observed over the years: The Mato Grosso and Goias States constitute as a physiographic continuation of the north and northwest of the state of Minas Gerais, with no physical barriers that facilitated the displaced of cattle to similar geographical environment areas.

The occupation of geographic space and territory has been a constant concern of agribusiness and society and, consequently, of public policies. Table 2 Cattle production in Brazil from to in 5-year periods per region with regard to the number of head and percentage acceleration standard error.

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 ]. This is partially explained by pasture degradation; i. The relative growth rate resulted in seven maps.
