Argentina: Livestock and Products Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   AR2021-0021

Post forecasts Argentine 2022 beef exports at 630,000 tons carcass weight equivalent (cwe), the lowest volume since 2019. Cattle slaughter and beef production are projected to drop marginally. High international prices have meant that despite government export restrictions and domestic price controls the beef and cattle sector (with the exception of feedlots) has maintained its profitability. However, if these market interventions continue as anticipated, the sector expects disinvestment and reduced herd size in the coming years.
