Mercosur - Argentina
Mercosur: The Prime Beef origin for the world
Since the arrival of the first Europeans at the beginning of the 16th century, the region’s development has been based on a long-standing tradition in raising livestock. The primitive animals were replaced by the most famous European meat breeds and Mercosur became one of the best livestock breeding regions in the world.
One of the largest ecological reserves of the world. The largest fertile area on the Continent: The Pampa. Great reputation for cattle of excellent quality ever since the 16th century. Today, 52 million heads of cattle graze freely day and night over almost 545,000 square miles of natural prairies under the careful watch of the “Gaucho”. Argentina’s agricultural business is responsible for about 50% of its total exports.
