The National Low Carbon Livestock Strategy aims to help cattle farmers increase their productivity and profitability while generating less GHG emissions per unit of product and achieve a more effective carbon sequestration per unit area and in total.

The National Low Carbon Livestock Strategy also includes emissions reduction targets:

• Reduction of GHG emissions per animal by 2% per year ;

• Reduction of total emissions by 1% per year as of 2010.

(In Spanish: "Reducción de emisiones de GEI por animal a una tasa anual del 2 % y reducción de emisiones totales a partir del año 10 a una tasa anual del 1%.")
