You know you're in for a unique evening when a real-life princess welcomes you to her Uruguayan farm. This night was truly the highlight of the 2013 IFAJ pre-Congress tour in Uruguay, where a small group of about 20 journalists from around the world gathered to experience the country's agriculture industry.
Estancia Las Rosas (Farm of the Roses) is one of the most diverse and well-known farms in Uruguay, which is owned by Belgian Princess Laetitia d'Argenberg. Crops grown on the farm are corn, soybeans and wheat, and there are robust beef, sheep and dairy operations, as well. Princess Laetitia and several of her employees gave the group a tour of this incredibly diverse farm operation with a focus on animal welfare and the highest quality genetic breeding. Take a look at our experience to get a feel for what Urguguayan agriculture is like.
