Working Everyday To Care For Our People, Animals, And Planet.

+ SUSTAINABLE PRODUCTION – Our methods for producing beef and lamb are economically, socially, and environmentally sustainable. Innovations in animal genetics and health, along with enhancements in farming practices. We have managed to double our export values while simultaneously reducing the number of animals required for farming by half.

+ CLIMATE CHANGE – The carbon footprint of Uruguay sheep and beef production is among the world’s lightest, even when exported to international markets and competing with domestically produced meat there..

+ ANIMAL WELFARE – Uruguay has some of the strictest animal welfare standards in the world. Farmers prioritise the wellbeing of their animals and our free range and pasture fed sheep and beef cattle live very naturally. Quality Marked beef and lamb adheres to strict welfare standards. 

+ WATER QUALITY AND WATER USE – Uruguay’s beef and lamb is produced almost entirely on rain-fed pastures, with minimal irrigation, meaning our water footprint is a fraction of global grain-fed meat production. Our generally low number of animals per hectare and low use of nitrogen fertiliser minimises nitrogen leaching levels. Measures such as planting slip-prone land and keeping cattle out of waterways helps protect water quality.
