In Brazil, bovine cattle (especially beef) are raised mostly in .. which accounts for % of calves produced in Brazil (ANUALPEC. Currently, the adoption rate of feedlot finishing and supplementation is around 10 % of the total herd (Anualpec, ), i.e., 90% of cattle is.

Discriminant canonical analyses were used to identify regions and municipalities that behaved in a different manner. Add new comment Your name.
However, official estimates from INPE PRODES contradict this observation and the reporting discrepancy would in any case need to be statistically tested with more than one year of observational data.
This may explain some of the results found in the present study. These reflect the highest variance in the discriminant model and provide a summary of the separation of the 2103. In these areas, the farmer either sells land or remains with a reduction in herd size or may enhance productivity.
Furthermore, the major drivers of sustainability in agriculture were the demands of the food market. These maps showed that this movement tends to be gradual, with few regions showing high acceleration or deceleration rates.
The existence of a secure market stimulated investments in animal production and expansion to areas that were further from production centers. Nevertheless, the expansion through the incorporation of forest areas, particularly in the northern regions, meets with barriers that did not occur in the past.
This study considered all municipalities in total in five regions of Brazil. In these regions, there was an incentive to rear anualec cattle, particularly for the installation of large meat processors and the implementation of large projects producing meat anualpef export. However, livestock development within a country or region has implications on several fronts genetics, adaptation, well-being, nutritionparticularly in continental-sized countries such as Brazil.
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. Ranching and the new global range: Therefore, the beef chain will be conducted by the market obligations.
The latitude 2103 2 and longitude Eq 3 midpoint were obtained by 2031 the sum of the geographic coordinates of the municipality and their production divided by the number of municipalities for each year.
This reflects changes in environmental factors, such as pasture type, temperature and humidity. This growth in the north can be observed from the early s Fig 2E—2G ; however, this reduction is a more recent phenomenon.
Dynamics of Cattle Production in Brazil
Lessons and challenges from Brazil. Cattle numbers grew in all regions over the period studied Table 1. The southeastern and southern regions showed the slowest growth during these periods.
The maps showed that this movement tends to be gradual, with few regions showing high acceleration or deceleration rates. Environmental, land-use and economic implications of Brazilian sugarcane expansion — Data on cattle production in Brazil were obtained from the website of the Brazilian Institute for Geography and Statistics [ 7 ] from to In addition, there might be a stabilization of farmers in their regions to acquire efficiency and sustainability.
The expansion of intensive agriculture and ranching in Brazilian Amazonia In: De Oliveira Silva, R. 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.
Satellite data show that the pasture area decreased from M ha to M ha over the periodwhile overall cattle numbers continued to increase. Technological developments in beef cattle production enabled Brazil to achieve an outstanding position in the international beef market. It also fuels the need for credit programs as well as research and development activities to support intensification goals [ 3 ].
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 study finds that the restoration of degraded pastures offers the largest opportunity to curb emissions. Questions related to the new Brazilian Forest code, the lack of logistics slaughterhouses, roads for a more intensive production, as well as the difficulty in obtaining credit for investments in the region, caused serious restrictions for the accelerated migration of cattle to this region.
Pervasive transition of the Brazilian land-use system. In addition, there are possibilities of productivity gains in the beef cattle sector because there are still regions with low efficiency indicators. Can 1 and Can 2 are the first tow canonical scores for each municipality.
Braz J Ani Sci. However, with the technological improvements in the agricultural sector and soils that are currently of anualpsc use for farming should, in the future, present economic viability and expel livestock to new frontiers or would change the existing production systems for a more intensive processes by the semi-confinement and confinement systems which may maintain the current herd situation.
Dynamics of Cattle Production in Brazil
Clusters formed according to relative growth and acceleration data showed that a small part of the municipalities is responsible for the largest relative growth Table 3cluster 4 and acceleration in growth Table 4cluster 3. The pro-intensification policies such as credit provision for recover degraded pastures and improved pasture management and investment in more intensive production systems must be accompanied by an implementation and enforcement of such policies [ 3 ].
Several different movements have been observed over the years: This demonstrates that the change in land use for livestock immediately repositions other agricultural activities. 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.
Public policies can reduce tropical deforestation: In this period, the driver was the existence of cheap land, which facilitated the increase in activity [ 8 ].
Thus, future studies should incorporate variables related to the expansion of crops, income from plant products, average area of farms, different specializations in cow-calf, growth and completion of production systems and density of cattle in different regions of Brazil.

The causes of the geographical dynamics of abualpec Brazilian cattle herd were originally associated with the need to meet the internal demand for beef, particularly in the s and s. However, it must be considered that the Brazilian cattle industry still has its production base in volume and scale in the Midwest and northern regions, as the price of land and the conditions anyalpec the biome limit more rapid expansion of agricultural crops.
However, these results indicate that the potential migration of cattle production reached further than the neighboring expansion regions. These municipalities showed both marked growth and retraction in given periods.
