Argentina: meat production to reach 6 million metric tons in 2017


The president of the Argentina Rural Society, Luis Miguel Etcheverre, announced today that the country will break a new record and will produce six million metric tons of meat this year. “The field in Argentina has already started to take off. There is a major effort of producers, including beef, poultry, sheep and pork. Among all, there will be a production of six million tons,” said Etcheverre.

Etcheverre also said that this will be a result of less government intervention in the sector with the end of export taxes and limits to exports, effectively putting the agricultural business in equality with other sectors of Argentina’s economy.
