Every farmer knows that land is their main asset, and understands that its protection and correct usage are crucial for the development of a sustainable business.
Lanas Trinidad believes that animal welfare should go hand in hand with corporate social responsibility and the preservation of the environment.
This is why Lanas Trinidad has been accredited by the following bodies ruling over the production of wool on farms:
Furthermore, Lanas Trinidad follows the regulations and recommendations included in a document safeguarding animal welfare produced by the Uruguayan Wool Secretariat (SUL), Uruguay’s National Institute of Agricultural Research (INIA), Uruguay’s Chamber of Agriproducts (CMPP), the Ministry of Livestock, Agriculture and Fisheries (MGAP), the College of Agronomy and the College of Veterinary Studies: “Ovine Welfare for Meat and Wool Producers: Guide for the Ethical Farming of Ovines in Uruguay”. This manual includes recommendations for the promotion of animal welfare and is the result of a national team effort geared towards the ethical and sustainable production of ovine meat and wool in Uruguay.
Uruguay is the first South American country to have issued a protocol concerning animal welfare.
Uruguay is a country in the southeast region of South America. Its mild climate and extensive pastureland benefit the sustainable, renewable and natural farming of ovines. Animals live outdoors and are free-range, sustained by the perfect combination of rain, sunshine, and the absence of snow and rainy seasons. Uruguay fulfils all the requirements for animal welfare.
Uruguayan wools are of excellent quality and are mulesing free. Uruguayan wools are of great value for industrial processes and for the development of byproducts.
Fine and superfine wools are increasing in demand nowadays due to their notable qualities, such as their suitability for all climates. Consequently, Uruguay is gradually increasing its production of wool ranging from 16.5 to 20 microns.
Lanas Trinidad has implemented a wool traceability programme that monitors the management of wool from the farm to the customer.
Uruguay is the second largest exporter of combed wool tops in the world.
Uruguay is mulesing free. The practice is forbidden as the country is committed to ovine welfare and its farming in a healthy and safe environment.
