The president of the Local Livestock Association indicated that there are ranchers who even resort to emigration and take their animals to the mountains during this season.
“There are ranchers that every year they get fences up, for the mountains, they take the animals; Some are already starting to leave because there is nowhere to graze here, the lands are already being worked,” he stressed.
He mentioned that this year is the one that they have had less space to graze the herds, since the recent rains are beneficial for the agricultural properties and that is where the producers seek to carry out the work of preparing the land.
He revealed that those who do not resort to taking their cattle to the mountains, opt for food in bales, which represents an early expense for livestock producers.
Given this, he declared that the weight of the livestock because the food dry represents few nutrients for the animals, added to this he recognized that at the end of the year the lags in the food.
