Editorial: Mexico Eliminates Duties On US Beef

Mexico has announced that it will eliminate anti-dumping duties on US beef imports.

The duties have been in place for the past 10 years. However, after much campaigning from the US industry, Mexican authorities have decided that the duties offer Mexican producers and consumers no advantages.

With Mexico being the leading destination for US beef imports, it is estimated that the elimination of these duties will bring $100-$500 million back into the US economy.

Canada is the second largest importer of US beef, and US exports to both Canada and Mexico have increased over the last year. It has been predicted that 8.8 per cent of total US beef production in June was exported.

Meanwhile, imports from Australia and Brazil have decreased. Total US imports equalled 10.7 per cent of US beef production in June.

The US cattle herd is continually declining, which producers hope will continue to push beef prices up. However rocketing corn and grain prices are likely to initially keep beef prices low.

We have 3 new features this week:

Opportunities For UK Offal
What are the export opportunities for UK offal, asked Dr Phil Hadley, South West Regional Manager for English Beef and Lamb Executive at Beef Expo 2010. Charlotte Johnston, TheCattleSite junior editor reports.
World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates - August 2010
Whilst slaughter of cattle is expected to increase, lower carcase weights mean that beef production is expected to be slightly lower than estimated. Milk production is expected to increase, as herds increase and cows productivity increases, according to the USDA World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates for August 2010.
Beef From Market Cows: Classification
For most beef and dairy producers, marketing culled cows translates to 15 to 25 per cent of their annual income and clearly contributes to the profitability of their operation. The first of this three part feature from the Center for Research & Knowledge Management in the Department of Research, Education & Innovation at the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association looks at the classification of market cows.
