Alright, I’m continuing to work on my paper discovery plugin. It’s absolutely not anywhere near ready for primetime, but I thought you might be interested in an update and I would be curious to see how you would rate these results compared to before.
For the query,
Please provide me a paper that explain the history of cattle-farming in Brazil.
The response I am getting now looks something like this,

Greenhouse Gas Emissions, Profitability, and Resource Use for Nelore Beef Cattle in Brazil’s Cerrado and Amazon Biomes||Animals||2020||The Integrated Farm System Model was evaluated using production, economic, and weather data collected on two cooperating farms in the Legal Amazon and Cerrado biomes in the Midwest state of Mato Grosso, Brazil to assess the importance of sustainably intensifying Brazil’s cattle industry on existing agricultural land.|
|Isolation and molecular characterization of Leptospira borgpetersenii serovar Hardjo strain Hardjobovis in the urine of naturally infected cattle in Brazil.||Genetics and Molecular Research||2016||The aim of this study was to report the first isolation in Brazil of two strains serovar Hardjo obtained in urine samples from naturally infected cows in a small Brazilian dairy herd and find the genetic species and consequently the type strain Hardjobovis by molecular characterization.|
|Risk factors for Toxoplasma gondii infection in sheep and cattle from Fernando de Noronha Island, Brazil.||Revista brasileira de parasitologia veterinaria = Brazilian journal of veterinary parasitology : Orgao Oficial do Colegio Brasileiro de Parasitologia Veterinaria||2016||A significant difference in the prevalence rates in sheep and cattle raised in this insular environment was revealed and the site of contact of sheep with felines was a risk factor.|
|Bovine respiratory disease complex associated mortality and morbidity rates in feedlot cattle from southeastern Brazil.||Journal of Infection in Developing Countries||2017||It is indicated that BRD contributed significantly to the development of mortality and morbidity of cattle on feed and the economic effects due to BRD-associated morbidity in Brazil were $6.31 million/annum.|
|Degraded pastures in Brazil: improving livestock production and forest restoration||Royal Society Open Science||2021||Regional identification of degraded pastures would facilitate the targeting of agricultural extension and advisory services and rural credit efforts aimed at fostering pasture recovery, and more efficient allocation of degraded and native pastures for meat production and forest restoration.|
|Selection for Test-Day Milk Yield and Thermotolerance in Brazilian Holstein Cattle||Animals||2021||The objectives were to identify the best model for characterizing environmental sensitivity in Holstein cattle, using the test-day milk yield (TDMY) combined with the temperature–humidity index (THI), and identify sires genetically superior for heat-stress tolerance and milk yield, through random regression.|
If you have any feedback, please share it.
I feel it’s not really grokking the idea of a single paper discussing the history of cattle farming in Brazil, but I don’t know there necessarily is one like that.
