The Ministry of Agriculture, Food Security, and Enterprise (MAFSE) reported the second shipment of cattle to Mexico for 2022 today, Wednesday, February 2.

“A total of 222 cattle or 143,504.2 lbs from the Orange Walk District were successfully exported today to Mexico,” said Belarmino Esquivel, Principal Agriculture Office and Livestock Director at the Ministry of Agriculture, Food Security, and Enterprise (MAFSE).

“This particular cattle export generated approximately $287,000.00 in revenue.”

A total of 294 cattle weighing 144,656 pounds was exported to Mexico on Tuesday from Kakabish in Shipyard, Orange Walk, as well. Esquivel said that shipment to Su Karne in Michoacan was valued at approximately $289,300.00.
