Egypt: Livestock and Products Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   EG2021-0019

Egypt maintains herd size with slight increases at 10 million head. Egypt continues to put polices in place to increase the animal production, however, the government hasn’t met their target yet, mostly due to instable input costs. Imports of live cattle and beef appear to be affected by the price increase of Brazilian exports. Indian exports of water buffalo are sharply increasing, while beef imports from Brazil are remarkably decreasing. China is absorbing most of the beef imports from Brazil after the African swine fever that hit China in 2018 impacted pig and pork production in the world's top market. Adding to that, Egypt delisted almost 70 percent of beef establishments suppling beef from Brazil. The Egyptian government representatives in veterinary service and Halal certifiers declared that quality and halal audits are required to re-approve these establishments.
