We produce quality carbon-neutral meat. In doing so, we put a great emphasis on protecting the environment and promoting animal wellbeing. We accomplish this by combining sustainable production with productive pastures. Our approach is to do a ‘full cycle’, where all animals are born and raised on the farm before being sold for meat.
Animal wellbeing is at the heart of our principles. Our animals are only fed with grass and they are never given antibiotics or hormones. In addition, each animal also has a lot of space (less than one animal per hectare) and permanent access to drinking water from lakes and rivers. This system ensures low contamination, as the grass fields absorb a large amount of CO2 and methane.
The origin and quality of Baldy
By working with Baldy (a Hereford-Angus cross), we can ensure a higher productivity by improving pregnancy rate, reducing death rate and ensuring a faster growth of weight.
Angus and Hereford are the two most common breeds of Uruguay cattle. While Angus provides a slightly higher quality meat, it is a bit less docile. Meanwhile, Hereford is a very robust animal for the Uruguayan climate because it is more resistant to drier periods.
The soft system we employ, ensures that our production process is sustainable, organic and carbon-neutral.
By using this traditional cattle farming system, we can mitigate many of the issues associated with modern farming. For example, on the contrary of feedlots, we do not use antibiotics, drugs and growth hormones. Furthermore, our animals are far less likely to get sick, our soil is less likely to get contaminated and we do not use as much water. The result is happier animals, a more sustainable way of farming and high-quality meat.
