By Rubén Morales Iglesias: “Today we expect to export a total of 261 heads of cattle or 148,312 pounds of live beef from KaKabish in the Orange Walk District to Mexico,” said Belarmino Esquivel, Principal Agriculture Officer and Livestock Director at the Ministry of Agriculture, Food Security, and Enterprise (MAFSE).

According to Esquivel, this export batch is expected to generate approximately BZ$315,000.00 for the economy of Belizean cattle producers.

In the previous export on April 22, 189 head of cattle were exported to Mexico.

So far in 2022, a total of 1,701 head of cattle have been exported to the tune of BZ$2 million, according to Esquivel.

Belizean cattle farmers have been exporting through the Belize Livestock Producers Association to Mexican importing company Su Karne since last year.

It’s expected that Belize cattle farmers should soon start benefitting from the lifting of export tariffs to Mexico as announced by Mexican president Andrés Manuel López Obrador during his visit here at the end of April.
