MORAES, María Inés. Cazadores y pastores: agentes, mercados y derechos de propiedad en la ganadería colonial rioplatense. Mundo agrar. [online]. 2020, vol.21, n.46, pp.132-132. ISSN 1515-5994.

This paper discusses the viewpoint that orders the history of Rio de la Plata’s cattle-ranching into a linear sequence of progressive technical change. Based upon an analytical framework developed by anthropologist Tim Ingold, it analyzes the livestock systems of the Rio de la Plata coast during the late colonial period and concludes that livestock technology in the Rio de la Plata from its early stages until the beginning of the 19th century was driven by the interplay of markets, agents and property rights across the diverse agrarian landscapes of the region.

Keywords : Colonial Rio de la Plata; Cattle-ranching history; Technical change in animal husbandry; Uruguay.
