SAN MARTÍN, ITÁ CAABÓ AND RINCÓN DE YEGUAS CATTLE FARMS
They are located in the department of Mercedes, in the center of the province of Corrientes. All the activities carried out at these farms are oriented to Braford breeding. San Martín is the breeding ranch, while rearing is mainly carried out at the Itá Caabó cattle farm, and Rincón de Yeguas is mainly concerned with the preparation of livestock for auctions and competitions.
The cattle farms are run on approximately 8,000 leased hectares. The dominant environment is one of sloping shallow soils with rocky outcrops, covered with natural, short and tender pastures. There are also flood-prone lowlands, where the Cortaderia selloana, (commonly known as “pampas grass”) is dominant.
The main implanted pastures are Setaria submacrostachya grass and Digitaria decumbens, while rearing is annually carried out on ray grasses.
