    Default farming systems

    Hi colleagues!
    When editing a job, I came across the translation of "farming systems" as simply "sistemas agrícolas." Being within a context of a mixed goat farming and pasture management topics, I'd rather go for "sistemas agropecuarios" (ie., covering both crop and livestock farming). Do you agree? Thanks!

    Exactly! According to DRAE:

    agricultura
    1. Cultivo o labranza de la tierra.
    2. Conjunto de técnicas y conocimientos relativos al cultivo de la tierra.

    agropecuario
    1. Que tiene relación con la agricultura y la ganadería.

    Just a side note on the term for informational purposes:

    "Farm system" is also used in the sport of baseball. It refers to the way Major League Baseball trains and evaluates players by having them play on minor league teams (farm teams) until they are ready to play on a major league team.

    Point well taken! And that always reminds me of the baby salmons and their freshwater farming. Nice souvenirs of Washington State and being in touch with Mother Nature!
