Expo Prado Agricultural Fair Gets Underway in Uruguay’s Capital

MONTEVIDEO – Expo Prado, Uruguay’s largest agricultural fair, is underway in Montevideo, showcasing the best products in the South American country’s ranching sector, along with a variety of shows with an international flavor.

The fair sprawls around the Ruedo Central, or central ring, an oval-shaped expanse of green lawn where top quality bovine and ovine specimens will be paraded along with Arabian horses.

Producers from Spain, Argentina and Britain are among the foreign participants manning stands.

And, as in every good show, music is being provided by groups with a national reputation, such as Los Negroni and Congo Bongo.

During the two-week fair at El Prado, a park in the heart of Montevideo, businessmen in neat suits mingle with participants wearing the typical “gaucho,” or cowboy, attire characterized by Basque-style berets and baggy trousers.

Something most people do have in common at the fair is the consumption of “mate,” the hot tea loved by Uruguayans.

Until Sept. 16, prizes will be awarded to the best animals in each breed of cattle, while business agents close deals and negotiate exports and imports.
