Resumo: Production of cattle is always a great alternative of potential value, in particular in Africa and Latin America continents, where the existing forage resources are very abundant. The aim of the present work was to discuss the production systems of beef cattle in tropical regions, notably in Mozambique and in the State of Maranhão - Brazil, making a diagnosis of the technological level of beef cattle production and the quality of life of the household producers in these areas. An on-site survey was performed in the province of Maputo and Gaza, in the southern region of Mozambique, where a set of selected producers were contacted in order to characterize the productive systems and their quality of life, which depend on these activities. For the Maranhão region it was utilized the literature review and data available from Agricultural Census for the analysis and description of the production systems. The results showed that different choices in farming practices such as improvements of feeding, animal selection and improved breeding and related management may help to provide a better sustainable development process, not only related to the producers life but also of all surrounding regions. The production choices are made taking into account several factors, such as the climate, the soil and social-cultural habits, but can be improved substantially, sometimes with little small changes that can be introduced in the system (technological innovation).
