With its mild climate and vast pasturelands, Uruguay has sustained a strong agricultural economy based mostly on raising sheep and cattle. Family farms and large plantations occupy much of the green rolling plains of this small country, sandwiched between Brazil and Argentina along South America's southeastern coast. Leading manufacturing industries process and export beef, hides, and wool.
