Before Columbus, there were no large domesticated animals in the Americas. On his second voyage in 1493, Columbus brought along mares, stallions, burros, sheep, and a full complement of cattle and pigs. Within ten years, these animals were present in large numbers throughout the Caribbean. The introduction of this livestock insured the success of all future Spanish settlements. By the 1600's, one of the least expensive foods in America was meat.
