Turkey: Livestock and Products Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

In Turkey, feed costs are still the biggest concern for livestock businesses, accounting for 80 percent of total expenditures. According to livestock producers, sufficient integration between livestock producers and feed producers have not been established well and feed markets are unsteady. In 2020, cattle imports are estimated to be 350,000 head which is 46 percent less than 2019 when 689,076 head of feeder cattle valued at $672 million were imported. In 2020, despite a growing population, meat production is estimated to be the same as 2019 due to shortage of quality feed supply due to the high prices, restrictive policies on feeder cattle imports, which were imposed at the end of 2019, and insufficient production policies which causes low carcass yields. Turkey imported 6,552 CWT of meat in 2019, which is 89 percent less than 2018 due to pressure from domestic producers to limit cheaper imports. All imported meat in 2019 was beef.
