Both ownership and the movements of cattle in Uruguay are documented in three ways.

What is the investment guarantee?
The investment backup is constituted by the cattle, whose value increases annually. The rights of the investor over the invested capital and its benefits, are obtained from the collection of the sale of the animals at the end of the contract. This value comfortably exceeds the share that corresponds to the investor and that is what makes the backup so robust, to the point of minimizing the risks of the investor, even in extreme situations such as the foot and mouth disease of 2001 or 2009´s drought.
What happens if the cattle dies or the price of the cattle decreases?
The animals owned by the investor increase their value by almost 100% per year. Of this growth only a minimum part is what the contract recognizes as the right of the investor. It is for this reason that the physical growth and value of the surviving animals will be used to replace the animals that have died or the price that has deteriorated in the course of the contract.
