FARM DEVELOPMENT

Agro Concept Management partners with a reliable and highly experienced farm management company, specializing in cattle farm development, specifically in the western part of the State of Bahia. In addition, we work with local farmers, which have extensive experience in cattle raising and breeding, operational activities and sales on the local market.

Western Bahia has soil and climate conditions which are highly favorable for raising grass-fed and feedlot cattle for beef and dairy. As a result, it is one of the most productive places on the planet for cattle raising. Compared to other types of agriculture, investment in a cattle-breeding farm is the most lucrative for a short-term period. This type of investment provides high yearly returns and has much lower material, technical, and personnel costs.

FIVE REASONS TO INVEST TODAY IN BRAZILIAN CATTLE FARMS

Global demand for meat is growing, especially for beef. For instance, over the past 50 years meat production has more than quadrupled. The world now produces more than 320 million tons each year.

As the world’s largest exporter of beef, Brazil currently provides close to 20% of total global beef exports. Moreover, this steady export growth trajectory should continue for the next decade. Experts estimate that by 2028, beef exports will reach 2.9 million metric tons, or 23% of the world’s total.

Brazil has the world’s second-largest cattle herd—232 million head.

In addition to a large internal consumer market, Brazil has strong export partners. These include China, Hong Kong, South Africa, Iran, Iraq, Myanmar, Malaysia, Singapore, and the Middle East. Moreover, Brazil is currently the largest producer of halal meat.

Brazil has highly developed technology for the cattle farming and agriculture industries.

WESTERN BAHIA, BRAZIL

Western Bahia is known as a large agricultural region and large producer of crops for export. Crops include soybeans, coffee, sugarcane, and cotton, along with beef and livestock. The region has unique characteristics that increase its potential for large-scale mechanized farming. The landscape is dominated by massive plateaus with dimensions of 300 by 200 km, which are conducive for developing large farms.

The region has a sufficient amount of water due to rainfall of up to 1,800 mm per year, three major rivers and the Urucuia Aquifer. In addition, warm weather, low risk of natural disasters and affordable land prices make it an ideal place for agricultural and farming investments today!

However, land prices are forecast to rise steadily due to the infrastructure improvements being made in Western Bahia. For example, the construction of the West-East railway and seaports will allow a significant reduction in transportation costs when compared to the current costs for road transportation. The railway will significantly reduce time and expenses for farmers exporting goods out of the region. So today is the time to invest!

FARM INVESTMENT PROCESS

Depending on the size of investment you wish to make, AgCM will present you with investment options. This includes detailed information on the most suitable agricultural land or developed farms from our portfolio. Once you choose from the farms or plots of land, we move on to stage 2.

Together with our local partner, a farm management company, we present you the best possible options for cattle farm development. We take into account soil, climate and water availability, market demands and legal/tax organization. Once the initial business plan is approved, we arrange a site visit to the farm in Brazil or Paraguay. Finally, we organize negotiations with your new potential business partner.

Next, we assist in creating an appropriate legal partnership entity between you and the local partner. Once the new entity is created, details regarding the cattle farm development process are finalized. Finally, you start your operation with the new local Brazilian partner.

Once the new entity is established and the contract is signed, AgCM’s obligations are fulfilled. We receive a commission fee as a pre-agreed fixed amount or based on a percentage of the investment.
