Abstract: This dissertation examines how the beef cattle is developed in settlements in land reform of Maranhão. It identifies the links that hinder access to land by the rural workers, and how, after attaining the status of owners, they can established themselves to achieve better living conditions. In explaining the current conditions in the studied settlements it is characterized the conditions in which families organize themselves and are producing, showing that most of the settlers had to create beef cattle as a mean to achieve better economic conditions. The reasons why the settlers chose this production system is not mainly dependent from this information, but mainly related to the savings and liquidity usually obtained, the key element for the maintenance of their families. There is a direct correlation between the creation of animals and the quality of life of families represented by the greater availability of income which leads to the acquisition of durable goods and increased consumption, despite the greater amount of vegetation removed from their lots with the installation of pasture compared to planting food crops.
