Ecological systems stand out, as they pay special attention to preserving natural resources, promoting biodiversity, guaranteeing animal well-being, and obtaining healthy products from raw materials and natural processes.

A questionnaire was designed for the farms, including 53 variables integrated into 10 indicators. Twenty three farms were surveyed (5 meat farms and 18 milk farms), of which 6 (2 meat and 4 milk) are certified in ecological production. The ecological farms show an 81% fit with the agroecological model for animal production, and the conventional farms show a 55% fit. Pri...
