Brazil is one of the world’s largest beef producers and exporters.


In 2020, the country was the largest exporter of meat in the world, with 2.2 million tons – 14.4% of the international market.


It has one of the largest and most sustainable cattle herds in the world, counting 218.2m heads of cattle.


Brazilian cattle production has benefited immensely from the technological advances of the past decades, both in pasture management and diversification, as well as in animal breeding and genetic selection.


The cattle enjoy good nutrition thanks to the wide availability of open pasture lands as well as locally produced grains.


The different breeds of cattle have been carefully selected and cross-bred to thrive in the local tropical conditions.
