Description: Cattle ranching is a major agricultural activity in Central Brazil and it plays a major economic role in Mato Grosso do Sul State. In the last few years, local agricultural development has been influenced by other agro-industries, mainly sugar cane and eucalyptus forestry, expanding over grazing areas, causing herd displacements but alsoleading to changes on local production systems. Herd numbersshow a tendency to decrease, while beef production keeps stable.This means improvements on individual husbandry techniques as wellas a general re-arrangement of herd structure. This can have important consequences on greenhouse gases (GHG) emissions from the sector inthe area. In this context, the goal of this study was to explore the implications of changes on cattle herd size and structure as well as land use change on GHG emissions per unit beef produced per unit of area used for cattle grazing in Mato Grosso do Sul State.
