I just finished mission one. I was tasked with building a an organic ranch, so I did but there was no option for what type of ranch (cattle/lama/sheep)
I didn't think much of it until one of the foreign representatives asked for 500 units of beef.
Since I couldn't choose the type of meat, I couldn't accept the objective.
Am I overlooking something?
If not, this needs to be fixed. Either allow the player to choose the type of animal to raise in the organic ranch, or change the objective to something generic like "500 units of meat"
..and bring back the "smoked beef" option too.
The Organic Ranches produce ALL types of livestock. That means they produce Llama wool, Goat Chees, Beef AND Smoked Beef. You don't get the option to choose which one because it produces ALL of them. If you look closely after you build one you'll see they have pens that have goats, llamas and cattle in them. Once you build one regardless of what is asked for in challenges you'll fulfill the challenge.

Just build some normal ranches earlier in the game. Not much of a fix but at least a work around.
Its the same with bio-farms... I really don't see the point. You choose a mode, ie. tobacco and then it automatically switches to 'Cash Crops' and grows all 3 (coffee, tobacco, sugar) which all have different needs so only one or two actually grows.. seems like wasted space to me.

For some reason I have never been able to complete the 'Export Beef/Smoked Beef' tasks once I have built the organic ranches [even when the task has been active for over 20 game years...] whereas I have never had a problem with the old-style ranches.... :/
For the Beef missions, it's probably the case that since you're producing Smoked Beef and not regular Beef, so you can't complete them and should try to avoid accepting the mission.
(Not sure why the "Beef" requirement isn't fulfilled by Smoked Beef, since the system can clearly handle Fine Jewels for the Export Jewellery missions.)
As to not being able to meet mission requirements, remember that your citizens will be eating some of your beef on account of it being a food item. You might need to simply build more Ranches to exceed the Tropican demand.
