Located in the tropics of West Bahia in Brazil, some 800 meters above sea level on a flat plateau intersected by small rivers, Farm Serrano Kurt represents an opportunity to acquire superior agricultural land in a region where farmland is known to be amongst the most productive anywhere in the world. Land prices in West Bahia still remain low when compared with other parts of Brazil and are positively a bargain when compared internationally. This is an ideal farm for developing projects for regenerative cattle farming and agriculture!
Farm Serrano Kurt consists of two contiguous plots totaling 3,840 hectares of land. It is currently operated as a cattle breeding and raising farm. This is the ideal place for raising cattle with high productivity and through nature conservation methods. The average fertility rate is of more than 85% per year.
The property is fenced all round and is adjacent to a river, which means that a supply of water for the cattle is guaranteed even if the normal water supply be interrupted. Of the farm’s 3,840 hectares some 1,200 hectares have already been transformed into grassland. Another 700 have been prepared for grass cultivation and about 1,100 have been left completely untouched.
Supporting infrastructure is already well developed, particularly in the immediate area of the farm. Electric power from the state grid is available at the property, which also has its own diesel generator. Since the main road is currently under construction there will soon be paved access to the network of highways providing a direct connection to the export ports some 800 km to the east. Both internal and external roads in the immediate vicinity are of good quality. Additionally, the nearby runway makes travel by small airplane possible.
The property includes a large wooden farmhouse which has its own autonomous solar power supply. There is another residential building for employees’ use, wells for the cattle, and a supply of fresh drinking water. Three people are currently employed at the ranch.
Cultivation of grass for cattle is the intermediate step in the preparation of the Farm Serrano Kurt land for crop production (soybean, maize, cotton, coffee).
The current focus on livestock at Farm Serrano Kurt is due mainly to the present logistical challenges and limited available personnel in comparison with other types of farming. The region is particularly well-suited to cattle ranching with an extremely low rate of parasitic infection among the animals.
