In Brazil, bovine cattle (especially beef) are raised mostly in .. which accounts for % of calves produced in Brazil (ANUALPEC. Currently, the adoption rate of feedlot finishing and supplementation is around 10 % of the total herd (Anualpec, ), i.e., 90% of cattle is.

Even so, intensification has provided a basis for Brazil to offer international lessons and to use the anualoec as part of its voluntary climate commitments.
Although there was a high acceleration in production in the region since the s, this growth has decreased significantly in recent years. 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.
Each point on the graph represents a municipality, with those that are named showing highest discriminatory values. However, livestock development within a country or region has implications on several fronts genetics, adaptation, well-being, nutritionparticularly in continental-sized countries such as Brazil.
These should alter the incentives to clear forest for pasture, discourage land speculation, and increase the accountability for land management practices if intensification of the cattle sector is to avoid new deforestation and displace production from low-yield, extensive cattle production systems in frontier regions of the Brazilian Amazon [ 12324 ].
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. The authors have declared that no competing interests exist.
In these regions, there was an incentive to rear beef cattle, particularly for the installation of large meat processors and the implementation of large projects producing meat for export.

The expansion of intensive agriculture and ranching in Brazilian Amazonia In: Subsequently, at the end of the s, there was a greater wnualpec in productivity rather than herd numbers, including a reduction in the area occupied by the activity.
His main interests are in modelling agricultural systems, particularly modelling the role of Brazilian livestock systems on deforestation and in climate change mitigation.
In recent anuapec, strong growth was observed in the northern region of Brazil Fig 2G with a reduction in the south of the Midwest region and along the northern border with Colombia. Importantly, these clusters do not indicate the same group of municipalities in the two analyses.
However, it must be considered that the Brazilian cattle industry still has its production base in volume and scale in the Midwest and northern regions, as the price of land and the conditions of the biome limit more rapid expansion of agricultural crops.
This movement in production is also accompanied by the need for adequate infrastructure abattoirs, transport, energy, inputs industriescommercialization and marketing, as well as technical support. Thus, production systems previously based on the complete cycle now lack conditions for fattening cattle, due to limitations of the pasture, a reduction in available physical space and logistics for the new region.
The occupation of geographic space and territory has been a constant concern of agribusiness and society and, consequently, of public policies. Agricultural policy and productivity: This is partially explained by pasture degradation; i.

This is also the mainstay of Brazil’s plan for the mitigation of greenhouse gas emissions [ 3 ], the environmental effect of animal production was crucial in the promotion of sustainability of agriculture production [ 12 ]. 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 anualec to in 5-year periods. Improving the use of current agricultural lands could meet production demands and spare natural habitats in Brazil.
Thus, there was a gap between technological innovation and productivity. Amazonia and Global Change.
Thus, the low beef cattle productivity index becomes the big problem of emission of greenhouse gases. The pro-intensification policies such as credit anuapec for recover degraded pastures and improved pasture management and investment in more intensive production systems must be accompanied by an implementation and enforcement of such policies [ 3 ].
Thus, agricultural productivity must keep pushing cattle ranching to occupy new frontiers.
Conceived and designed the experiments: The acceleration of analpec cattle herd growth in Brazil has been increasing from to But how much truth is there in this? Other commentators have highlighted market regulation or other demand-side factors e. Clusters formed according to relative growth and acceleration data showed that a small part of the municipalities is responsible for the largest relative growth Table 3cluster 4 and acceleration 0213 growth Table 4cluster 3.
