Brazil can start exporting swine semen to Argentina. This was the outcome of a recent agricultural deal closed between the two countries.
The agreement, which was finalised earlier this year, also includes promises to ship bovine genetics in both directions across the border. In addition, frog meat will be allowed to be shipped from Brazil to Argentina. The total package, containing 29 points, is a good step forward for both countries. Both in Brazil and Argentina, beef production is substantially larger than pork production in terms of volume.
The South African Pork Producers’ Organisation (SAPPO) coordinates industry interventions and collaboratively manages risks in the value chain to enable the sustainability and profitability of pork producers in South Africa.
