Animal Welfare

Our animal welfare approach

Uruguay is the perfect environment to raise the finest beef and lamb, with animals free to roam as nature intended. It’s important to us that each and every one of them are treated with care and respect, living happy and healthy lives.

Animal welfare in Uruguay is governed by MGAP. Tacuarembó is also a member of Instituto Nacional de Investigación Agropecuaria (INIA), an industry collaboration to create a single standard for Uruguay farmers around integrity, traceability, bio-security, sustainability and animal welfare.
