The Rise and Rise of Brazilian Beef

Brazilian beef exports are set to almost double in ten years, claimed the Brazilian Ministry of Agriculture, earlier this week. The ministry has forecast 61 per cent of total world beef trade will come from Brazil in 2018-19, whilst in the Brazilian domestic market, beef export association ABIEC say beef is expected to be the second fastest growing meat consumed with a 2.2 per cent annual growth.

But, whilst the future of Brazilian beef is looking strong, Russia is failing. Russia has spent about $8 billion over the last four years importing breeding cattle to reestablish a beef and milk industry, but this week's reports said it has had little effect.

Last year, Russia produced just half of the three million tonnes of beef consumed and domestic production was down significantly compared the figures for 2000.
