Interest in biorenewable fuels has dramatically increased over the past five years and has translated into tremendous investment in ethanol and other biofuel products worldwide. This has led to the energy sector becoming a crucial market for agricultural products, especially in Brazil and the USA. This interaction between the energy and agricultural sectors is resulting in significant changes in agriculture, and not just to the crops used in energy production. In this article, we look at the prospects for ethanol in Brazil and the USA and examine the possible ramifications of ethanol development on the USA and world livestock.
