Cattle: Beef Imports From Uruguay Surge, Status Changes for Brazil & Argentina



Beef imports from Uruguay nearly quadrupled from 2003 to 2004, and they remain strong in early 2005. Most Uruguayan imports enter the United States after payment of a 26-percent tariff. Uruguay utilized its tariff-free allowance of 20,000 tons (product weight basis) under the tariff-rate quota (TRQ) rules, but that represented only about 7 percent of their 2004 exports to the United States. U.S. Government officials are reviewing whether to permit resumption of fresh and frozen beef imports from Argentina, which are still excluded because of foot-andmouth disease problems. Argentina has an allocation of 20,000 tons under the TRQ system. It currently ranks second behind Brazil in supplying cooked beef products to the United States.



Brazil also hopes to gain FMD-free status soon under the APHIS veterinary review process, based on Brazil’s FMD eradication programs. As mentioned, Brazil is the leading exporter to the United States of processed (cooked) beef products, having supplied over 200 million pounds (carcass weight equivalent) in both 2003 and 2004. Brazil recently surpassed Australia as the leading beef exporter in the world.



However, on May 5, 2005, Brazil’s Agriculture Ministry suspended exports to the United States of processed beef. News reports indicated this action followed an inspection visit by U.S. veterinarians which found fault with sanitary procedures at Brazilian slaughterhouses. Brazil had been shipping around 20 million pounds or more (carcass weight basis) of beef products to the United States each month over the past several months. The impacts of this interruption are expected to come in the late second quarter and early third quarter of 2005. A relatively quick correction by Brazilian authorities is expected due to the high value of lost trade with the United States and the potential for lost trade among other countries also concerned about sanitary conditions. Other processed beef exporting countries may pick up some of the slack in sales to the United States, but it would be difficult to entirely replace the volume of Brazilian sales in the short run.

Does any one know if import export statistics are put in a monthly adjusted pie chart? It seems to me that would be of value to everyone in the industry to be able to track movement changes at a glance. Should be easily doable in a high tech world we live in.

There's some good ag charts from Brazil and they are written in Portuquese ,but I use Altavista to translate and get most of the data.
