Australia may reduce beef exports by 22%

With the smallest cattle herd in the last 30 years, Australia can reduce its export volume by 22% within 2020-2021. The estimative is from the Australian Bureau of Agricultural and Resource Economics and Sciences (Abares), which reported that the smallest herd of cattle (21.1 million head) and the current female retention process for the reconstruction of the herd will be responsible for restricting beef production and exports in the short term. Even so, in the next 12 months, the agency expects the cattle herd to increase to 21.5 million heads.
The main consumer market for Australian beef, China is expected to reach 324,000 tons in 2019-20. In 2018, the number was 228 thousand tons. The United States should reduce imports of Australian protein by 6%, totalizing 226 thousand tons this season.
“Australia will continue to export quality protein to the world and, even with the reduction expected for next year, our customers will be served with beef from countries such as Brazil, Argentina and Uruguay, which are also a reference in quality meat. KIT and Garra, together, have reliable suppliers in different countries and this makes us an important link between producer and consumer markets”, says Karin Pfannl, KIT International commercial manager in South America.
