Información



24 años después de que Colón descubriera América, Juan Díaz de Solís, el expedicionario español descubrió el territorio uruguayo. En 1617, el gobernador Fernando Arias de Saavedra, se da cuenta de que la verdadera riqueza de esta región eran las abundantes praderas naturales y el inagotable suministro de agua. Esto dio lugar al desarrollo extraordinario de la ganadería y la ganadería ovina. Las primeras vacas y ovejas se introdujeron en Uruguay en ese momento y florecieron rápidamente para convertirse en una de las economías de cría de ganado más prósperas del mundo, alcanzando 9 millones de vacas y 25 millones de ovejas para el año 1990. La población de Uruguay es de 3 millones, habitando un territorio de 176.214km2
