Cattle farming near Rupanco Lake in Osorno Province.

The Osorno Steer (Spanish: Novillo de Osorno) is the meat of young male cattle from the vicinity of Osorno, including parts of Los Ríos Region, in southern Chile.[1] The origins of the Osorno Steer as a recognisable product of prestige in the Chilean meat market can be traced to the early 20th century when Osorno attained status as one of Chile's two main cattle farming areas.[1] Later in the 20th century Osorno rose to become the unrivaled cattle farming area of Chile.[1]
