Argentina – Flooding of several rivers in South America due to “El Niño”

The Uruguay, Paraguay and Paraná Rivers began to overflow in late December 2015 after a period of unusually heavy rain, blamed on El Niño. Since then over 120,000 people have been forced from their homes. The current flood in South America involves three major rivers and their tributaries, running through 4 different countries (Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay and Paraguay).

One of those is the El Dorado river which is connected upstream to our farm San Bartolo located in Salta province.

None of our staff member or livestock have been affected but you can see the current flood situation on one of our plots dedicated to natural pasture.
