The sugarcane expansion resulted in a significant reduction of pastures and number of cattle and higher economic growth compared to neighboring areas [ 11 ]. Author information Article notes Copyright and License information Disclaimer. When enough should be enough: Open in a separate window.

The needs to expand the agricultural 20013 in Brazil, the entry of foreign abattoir industries and the opening of markets to export processed beef to the United States have been motivated by the livestock sector anhalpec their migration to land areas at lower costs. Since there has been an apparent decoupling of cattle herd sizes and deforestation in all Brazilian biomes, reversing the historic correlation over the period This has occurred mainly in countries with areas for expansion of beef cattle, such as Brazil.

However, this can affect the price of land for cattle ranching in Brazil, which increases in the same proportion as lands for agriculture.

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.

Persistence of cattle ranching in the Brazilian Amazon: North —; — Midwest —; — and Northwest — On the other hand, although do not occur growth in the North region, with the current flock aualpec the structure of agro-industrial complex linked to aanualpec beef chain, there will be a demand for increased production in the livestock sector, which can be achieved by increasing productivity.


Thus, there was a anualepc between technological innovation and productivity. 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.

Funding Statement These authors have no support or funding to report. 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 ]. Nevertheless, productivity grew by only 2.

Land-saving approaches and beef production growth in Brazil. Nevertheless, there is always a risk that it will not work. Thus, it is clear that the expansion of the Brazilian herd is through migration, and if it finds no geoeconomical support, it should stabilize or even undergo a slight decrease as shown by the relative stagnation of this migration in recent years Fig 1. This may explain the deceleration in cattle production in regions that have problems with slaughterhouse logistics, such as transport and production flow, but may also be due to an increased productivity in the region, the production systems in the Amazon region still present low technology use [ 22 ].

The most expressive growth was anual;ec observed in the Northeast and Midwest regions, which anualpecc this growth over the period; however, this growth has been slower in recent years Table 2. The total productivity 22013 show that technological growth in the agribusiness sector in Brazil was 4. This demonstrates that the change in land use for livestock immediately repositions other agricultural activities. The Mato Grosso and Goias States constitute as a physiographic anualpc of the north and anualpc of the state of Minas Gerais, with no physical barriers that facilitated the displaced of cattle to similar geographical environment areas.

These reflect the highest variance in the discriminant model and provide a summary of the separation of the municipalities.

Dynamics of Cattle Production in Brazil

The latitude Eq 2 and longitude Eq 3 midpoint were obtained by multiplying the sum of the geographic coordinates of the municipality and their production divided by the number of municipalities for each year. Cattle analpec by region in Brazil — with error bars. Production does not mean competitiveness, and studies have shown a lack of competitiveness within Brazilian beef production [ 1920 ].


Braz J Ani Sci. 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 article has been cited by other articles in PMC. This question is for testing whether or not you are a human visitor and to prevent automated spam submissions. However, livestock development 2103 a country or region has implications on several fronts genetics, adaptation, well-being, nutritionparticularly in continental-sized countries such as Brazil.

Two groups of anualpc of municipalities were formed according to the relative growth and acceleration calculated above. Acceleration in production in the northern region of Brazil has remained strong over the years. Moreover, the emergence of integrated production systems called Crop-Livestock Integration and Crop-Livestock-Forest Integration can create new conditions for ranchers to avoid the migratory cycles for livestock production.

This explains the movement of the cattle herd to the northern states of Brazil, as the land that had been previously occupied by livestock now produces soybeans and corn. Annual deforestation rates in the Amazon. 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.

Improving the use of current agricultural lands could meet production demands and spare natural habitats in Brazil.

Dynamics of Cattle Production in Brazil

This occurred despite allegations of a widespread marketplace transition within anuallec beef and soy industries, the main drivers of deforestation, to exclude Amazon deforesters from their supply chains [ 17 ]. Other commentators have highlighted market regulation or other demand-side factors e. The increase in cattle production and expansion of pastures for cattle ranching in the North is accompanied by deforestation [ 15 ].
