According to Henders et al. (2015), cattle breeding is responsible for 60% of tropical deforestation. This responsibility is concentrated in Latin America, the continent where the weight of the agricultural sector in deforestation is also the highest (71.5%), according to De Sy et al. (2015). Three forest biomes are affected by ranching: the humid forests of the Amazon, the semi-deciduous forests of the Cerrado and the dry forests of the Gran Chaco.
