Situation/Weather: The farm is in very good shape and has recovered from the previous drought period. However, pastures are less dense as they should be for the period due to lack of water previously recorded. Soil will need time to recover from the intense drought the region faced earlier.
Cattle: We have around 5,000 heads at the farm, in good body condition as you can see below in the various categories.
The herd was relatively resilient given the high heat recorded previously (mortality rate 0.6%). The most sensitive categories were supplemented, which obliged us to buy back fodder and pellets, whose prices are rising. We proceed to an early weaning so that mothers can recover before winter service. The annual production objective will not be met due to the impact of the drought on the cycle. However, we are registering good sale performance as market prices are at their peak. 480 Calves (male/female) will be sold in the coming weeks.
