Herd Health Information

Uruguay has examined cattle for BSE as far back as 1972. Result: BSE has not been found! It is highly unlikely that BSE will ever be found in Uruguay. In January 2001, the EC published the following report on the Internet concerning this matter: "Report on the Assessment of the Geographical BSE Risk in Uruguay" ((c) European Communities, 1995-2000).

Cattle Information

Uruguay has world-wide one of the most favourable conditions for raising cattle. The highest percentage of crop and pasture land. 83% of the country is dedicated to natural production. The highest availability of fertile land per capita. Uruguay has over 40,000 m2 of productive soil per inhabitant. Over 11 million cattle and only 3 million people are currently living in Uruguay. Half of the people live in the capital city, Montevideo.

The cattle in Uruguay eat exclusively natural grass and herbs.
graze all year long - 24 hours a day - on the large, natural, fertile pastures. They live free together with sheep, horses, ostriches and other animals.

The "Gaucho" is a hard working man, who takes care of the grazing cattle. He is the equivalent of the American Cowboy and spends most of his time on horseback, which allows him to control thousands of cattle.

The horns of the cattle have been bred out, thus keeping them from injuring one another and maintaining the high quality of the beef. Uruguay is known world-wide for its excellent beef quality.
