Cattle feedlots in Brazil remain concentrated

Lacking accurate statistics, intensive farming has taken on a new dimension. With 877 units with a total capacity to house 2.7 million head per cycle, Brazilian cattle feedlots are concentrated in the hands of only a few farmers, says a new survey conducted by the National Feedlot Association (Assocon).

Last year, only 8% of the 849 properties involved in intensive farming were responsible for 50% of the 3.3 million animals finished by this method in Brazil, the study says. "This is a pattern. There are a lot of cattle in very few feedlots," says the executive manager of Assocon, Bruno Andrade.
