India: Livestock and Products Semi-annual

India’s CY 2017 beef and water buffalo meat (carabeef) production is projected to increase by four percent to 4.35 million tons carcass weight equivalent (CWE) due to population growth and moderate export demand. CY 2017 carabeef exports are projected at 1.95 million tons CWE on moderate export demand from the Middle East, Africa, and Southeast Asia. CY 2016 cattle and water buffalo population forecast levels are revised up to 302.6 million head due to less slaughter in CY 2015 because of low demand in the Southeast Asian market.
