Ecofarms is more than a manager, it is a model of livestock management focused on sustainability, animal welfare, and meat quality.
WHAT IS ECOFARMS?
Our farm is in the municipality of Prata - MG, it has the Rainforest Alliance Certified Sustainability Seal and participates in the Neutral Livestock Project, a project that seeks to neutralize the greenhouse gases emitted by cattle
We always seek the animal welfare; they are raised loose in pastures, even the termination that is done in a semi-confinement regime. They receive feed, but remain loose in pasture. We work with the Nelore, Brahman, Angus and Wagyu breeds.
More than 40% of the ranch is covered by native forest, and in partnership with the Neutral Livestock project every year we plant eucalyptus with pasture on part of the property, seeking to neutralize enteric methane emitted by cattle. We conducted a survey of fauna on the ranch, together with the NGO IPE, and we discovered that we have a lot of wildlife, among the species found we chose the tapir, a mammal threatened with extinction, to be the animal symbol of the ranch.
