The 2nd sentence states: "Brazil has over 200,000 head of cattle and 200,000 people."
This sentence refers to "over 200,000" (two hundred thousand) head of cattle and "200,000" (two hundred thousand) people, while, the chart indicates 213,035,000 (213+ MILLION) head of cattle and 200,400,000 (200+ MILLION) people in Brazil. The sentence is a FACTOR of 1,000 lower than the actual numbers of cattle and people in Brazil. [FYI, the HUMAN population of Brazil is estimated at 204,451,000 in 2015 (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brazil)].
