    I am dismayed to hear that the cattle industry is looking to utilize feed lots rather than to continue its grass fed history. If they move too much in that direction, that decision will undermine the world perception that all Uruguayan beef is strictly grass fed, and then trust in the product will be lost. Prices will drop and the industry will have cut off its nose to spite its face. This is very poor long range thinking. As well, in the soy and rice industries, the increasing and indiscriminate use of herbicides and pesticides will undermine the perception that Uruguay grows “clean” food. Very bad judgement here!
