However, due to environmental issues and port logistics and infrastructure, these regions failed to facilitate the sale of meat abroad. In the livestock sector, the animal productivity is related to food intake and anualppec gain efficiency, thereby generating methane emissions. This trend is attributed to a significant intensification of cattle ranching anuaplec arable production in most regions.

In fact recent empirical evidence shows an apparent decoupling of agricultural production and deforestation, a factor that sheds new light on the full environmental costs of beef operations.

This may explain some of the results found in the present study.

Thus, the objective of this article is to study the dynamics of cattle production in Brazil on a municipal scale and to identify potential areas of strangulation for continued growth and variables that could limit the increase in production and productivity of the cattle in Brazil.

Satellite data show that the pasture area decreased from M ha to M ha over the periodwhile overall cattle numbers continued to increase.


Improving the use of current agricultural lands could meet production demands and spare natural habitats in Brazil. The occupation of geographic space and territory has been a constant concern of agribusiness and society and, consequently, of public policies.

Growth in the Midwest was observed in earlier years Fig 2A—2C. xnualpec

Developing a nationally appropriate mitigation measure from the greenhouse gas GHG abatement potential from livestock production in the Brazilian Cerrado. Table 1 Relative growth of cattle numbers and percentage standard error in Brazil from to in 5-year periods by region. American Geophysical Union, Washington: 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.

Thus, the low beef cattle productivity index becomes the big problem of emission of greenhouse gases. 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.

Accessed 10 January The expansion of intensive agriculture and ranching in Brazilian Amazonia In: The migration in cattle production was different from the migration in sheep production in Brazil during the same period [ 13 ], which followed a steady Northeastern route but has stabilized in recent years.

Abstract Movement of livestock production within a country or region has snualpec for genetics, adaptation, well-being, nutrition, and production logistics, particularly in continental-sized countries, such as Brazil.

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

In this early period ranching systems were characterised by low mechanization and limited access to agricultural inputs, e.


A call for policy action based on evidence from Queensland AustraliaColombia and Brazil. This is also the mainstay of Brazil’s plan for the mitigation of greenhouse gas emissions [ 3 ], the environmental effect of animal production was anualec in the promotion of sustainability of agriculture production [ 12 ].

Discussion The causes of the geographical dynamics of the Brazilian cattle herd were originally associated with the need to meet the internal demand for beef, particularly in the s and s. Funding Statement These authors have no support or amualpec to report. The relative growth rate resulted in seven maps. These reflect the highest variance in the discriminant model and provide a summary of the separation of the municipalities. The pro-intensification policies such as credit provision for recover degraded pastures and improved pasture management and investment in more intensive production systems must anualpev accompanied by an implementation and enforcement of such policies [ 3 ].

The End of Deforestation in the Brazilian. These maps were generated on a continuous scale, as these represent differences between two periods, presented as the beginning of one period until the end of the next period p. In the northern region, because 201 original herd was small, the initial acceleration — was high with aanualpec migration of cattle production from other regions, but in numeric terms, the herd size has only become expressive 201 the last 10 years.

Cluster and canonical discriminant analyses were performed to further highlight differences between regions in terms of cattle 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.
