En estancia Santa María le proponemos vivir una auténtica experiencia en el campo

Santa María es una estancia de 2500 hectáreas dedicada a la ganadería y agricultura, como así también a la cría del caballo criollo.

Todos los días hay tareas para hacer en el campo y lo invitamos a participar de forma activa en las mismas junto con nuestros gauchos.

Hay épocas en las que se entrenan caballos para las competencias en las cuáles participamos. Ver, aprender y participar de estas prácticas es algo muy interesante. En Santa María podrá conocer en profundidad todo lo relacionado al caballo criollo.

 

Actividades: Cabalgatas. Participación en actividades ganaderas. Entrenamiento equino . Pesca en el arroyo “El Gato”. Bicicletas. Paseos en camioneta a los márgenes del arroyo.

Santa María is first-class steer fattening land. This is done on artificial pastures consisting of a mixture of eight different varieties of seed, each one of which has its maximum fattening potential in different seasons of the year, thus achieving the most stable production possible of animal feed.

When they ask us what is produced in Santa María, many expect the answer “meat”, when what we really produce is grass from which foraging animals produce the meat.

The cattle breeds which are fattened in Santa María are of British origin as Aberdeen Angus, Hereford and Angus/Hereford crosses. The final destination of these animals is a meat packing plant and thereafter home consumption and/or exportation.

Animals in the fattening process on artificial pastures are supplemented with grain (sorghum and maize) which is grown in spring and thereafter kept in plastic silos until required.

Unlike crop agriculture, animal husbandry is an everyday job consisting of moving the animals through the paddocks in a rotational grazing system, and constant health care through the different vaccinations, drenching, castrations, caring for sick animals, daily weight-gain monitoring and general control of the estancia stock.

We invite guests at Santa María to participate in the daily programmed cattle tasks as herding, working the cattle in the corrals and moving them in the daily rotations.

                                  

Activities: Horseback riding. Cattle activities. Horse training. Fishing at the “Gato” stream. Bicycles. Truck rides around the estancia up to the stream.
