Description of activities The Livestock Farms NAMA proposed incorpor The Livestock Farms NAMA proposed incorporates within its scope beef, dairy and double purpose livestock activities in farms, within the entirety of the national territory dedicated to this economic activity. The NAMA has the goal to implement mitigation measures in 80% of applicable farms nationally in a fifteen-year period through two stages: 1. Pilot phase (until 2021) - implementation of measures in 10% (approx 4000) of farms. 2. Second stage (until 2028) - Up-scaled implementation of measures to 80% of farms, adoption of MRV system, and strengthening of capacities. Measures: > Improved fertilization plans > Rotational grazing / live fences: separating the pasture area to allow for rotating the herds to the next space at least every two or three days allows the pastures to grow healthier, and the soils to capture more carbon. Additionally, the separation of the areas will be done with live fences, which consist of live trees used as the pillars for wired fences, allowing for the fences themselves to be a source of carbon capture. > Improvement of pastures: By improving the pasture species, not only will more carbon be captured by the pastures themselves and the soils as their roots are bigger, but also the diets of the herds are improved. These improved diets in turn reduce enteric fermentation, increase productivity and increase reproduction rates. success of improved pastures increases when accompanied by rotational grazing. > Silvopastoral systems: These involve the planting of trees within the pasture areas to provide shadow for the herds and in turn, capture carbon. They also imply a growth of forested areas and arborization (forest plantations, fruit trees, etc.) within the farms. > Other feasible and relevant measures such as Manure Management and Genetics, as well as wider supply chain activities including distribution, slaughterhouses and others, are being included within the Livestock LcDs and their inclusion within this nAMA framework is being analysed for initial or future stageseing analysed for initial or future stages
