The Argentine government is financing construction of five major cattle feedlots, with the capacity of 40,000 head each. The feedlots will free up more land for the planting of soybeans. Today, an estimated 12 million head of cattle are fed in confinement in Argentina, triple the number of five years ago. Per-capita consumption of beef in Argentina is 154 lbs./year, the highest in the world.
