The Uruguayan Advantage
Uruguay enjoys a mild climate, fertile soils and rolling hills,with plenty of sunshine and water, perfect for cattle raising. Uruguayan livestock breeding standards are amongst the highest in the world – use of hormones and sub-therapeutic antibiotics are banned, and cattle are certified free of mad cow disease.
In addition, Uruguay is the only country in the world to have implemented a completely computerized traceability system, which allows consumers to know exactly where their beef comes from and how it was raised.
