Uruguay’s world first in cattle farming

Uruguay is sometimes described as “one big farm”. It’s a country, albeit a small one, where cattle outnumber people by four to one and farming is the most important part of the economy.

Uruguay is now the only country in the world with a completely computerised traceability system – meaning consumers at home and abroad know exactly where their beef comes from and how it was raised.

In a world first, all cattle in this country are now electronically tagged at birth in the first completely traceable meat process.

The system has already cost Uruguay U$70 million ($3m; £1.9m) to implement but it has helped to reinforce the country’s reputation as the world’s premier supplier and producer of quality beef.BBC
