By Aaron Humes: Blue Creek livestock farmers today are making their first formal shipment to Mexican importers.

Between 600 and 630 heads of cattle from across the Blue Creek area are being shipped out today after being in quarantine for longer than a month.

Chairman of the Blue Creek Livestock Producers Association, Steward Dyck says that for a while they have treated cattle raising as more of a hobby than a livelihood but that changes with favorable prices from Mexico’s Su Karne, they are aiming to raise profits in 2021 with reduced costs and steady demand.

He noted that the animals have reacted differently to their circumstances, gaining or losing weight according to how they were managed at their home farms.

They now need to be weighed and checked for physical defects after being vaccinated. 

We’ll have more from the ceremony hosted by the Minister of Agriculture, Food Security and Enterprise Jose Mai later on.
