Argentina: Livestock and Products Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

Argentine beef exports for 2018 are forecast to rise by 25 percent to 350,000 tons, carcass weight equivalent, and the largest volume of the past nine years. A steady rebuilding of herds is beginning to result in more cattle for slaughter. Additional beef output – estimated at 2.9 million tons for 2018 - is expected to be channeled to a larger domestic market and greater exports. Industry contacts indicate that despite the recently reinstated export rebates on beef, the relatively strong Argentine peso continues to put pressure on exporters who find it difficult to compete in many markets.
