Cattle ranch or crop farm?

Cultivation of grass for cattle is the intermediate step in the preparation of the farm Vau do Formosa land for crop production (soybean, maize, cotton, coffee).

The current focus on livestock at Vau do Formosa 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.
