Brazil Says Beef Exports to U.S. May Resume

Brazilian officials expect to resume fresh beef exports to the United States in early 2018. In a news conference, Brazil’s Agriculture Minister Blairo Maggi said the country will resume “very soon” beef exports to the United States. The U.S. has not made any announcements about lifting its ban on Brazilian fresh beef.

In June the U.S. suspended Brazilian fresh beef imports due to “recurring concerns about the safety of the products.” That came after the U.S. had rejected 1.9 million pounds of Brazilian beef from March to June. Brazilian authorities said the rejections were due to abscesses in meat caused by reactions to vaccinations against foot-and-mouth disease (FMD).

Maggi’s comments come after Brazilian industry leaders said in November they expected exports to the U.S. to resume in the first quarter of 2018, following negotiations with U.S. authorities.

Brazil is the world’s largest beef exporter, and they project shipments to grow 10% in 2018 after an increase of 9% in 2017. The export increase came despite corruption and food safety scandals that temporarily closed major markets.

A Brazilian trade group said exports are projected to reach 1.68 million tons in 2018, up from 1.53 million in 2017. Revenue is expected to rise about 11% to US $6.9 billion, after a 13% rise in 2017 to US $6.2 billion.

The bullish projections are based on expectations the U.S will lift its ban, and China certifying imports from nearly a dozen more plants, which could increase exports to China by 50%. Hong Kong, China and Russia are the leading buyers of Brazilian beef, accounting for 703,000 tons during the first 11 months of 2017.

The USDA had best keep the ban on South American Beef and quit kow-towing to the George Soros expansion of control over our industry. Five months after President Trump's Inauguration, it was great to see the ban reinstated after almost two years market decline with JBS-USA and Cargill falling into Soros/Batista control. The market continued to rise as we try once again to rebuild our cattle herds to a sustainable way of making a living. The very last insult to the injury Obama/ Soros/ Vilsack cartel had inflicted on the Family Farmer and Ranchers, would be to open our doors again to the Fresh Beef from South America. The Asians are not stupid people, With BSE still prevalent in SA and the USA processing with out COOL label, we can kiss their long awaited consumer business goodbye.

It was the corruption and food safety scandals that temporarily closed major markets which resulted in the ban recently. Good to know that the ban will be soon lifted and the exports are going to resume as per the early manner. catalina island hotel metropole deals
