Brazil Livestock and Products Semi Annual Report 2008

Beef production in Brazil is estimated to increase in 2008 by 2.5 percent, a lower rate than last year, while beef exports are expected to drop by 5 percent in volume, because of the new restrictions imposed by the European Union, according to the USDA Foreign Agricultural Service. However, strong domestic demand and exports to new markets likely will offset most of the export losses to the European Union. Post also projects pork production and exports to increase in 2008 because of firm export and domestic demand.
