Mexico Beef Production May Drop 70 Pct Y/Y 2005

Invertia - Mexico


Mexican beef production may fall to 450,000 tonnes in 2005, down 70 pct year-on-year, the vice president of Mexican association of beef cattle farmers AMEG, Ignacio Villarreal Cortes, said on May 24, 2005.

The main reason for the decrease will be the new set of requirements for beef imports, which the USA will introduce on June 1, 2005.

The most affected from the new regulations will be the states with cases of bovine tuberculosis. Some of the leading beef exporting states as Durango and Nuevo Leon will suffer a considerable cut down in their production. The overall losses will stand around $1.0 bln (794.2 mln euro), Cortes added.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture halted cattle shipments from the Mexican state of Durango because of insufficient restrictions to prevent the spread of bovine tuberculosis. At the same time, the U.S. meat producers are facing low supplies because of a two-year-old ban on imports of Canadian cattle.

The state of Durango accounts for about 17 pct of annual Mexican beef exports to the USA.

The bovine tuberculosis is a contagious disease that can be transmitted from livestock to humans and to other animals.

[Alternative/Original name: Asociacion Mexicana de Engordadores de Ganado Bovino (AMEG).]
