Uruguay: Livestock and Products Annual

Uruguayan beef exports for marketing year (MY) 2020 are projected at 454,000 tons carcass weight (cwe), marginally lower than in 2019, as large calf exports from 2016-2018 reduced fed cattle inventory. China is expected to account for more than 70 percent of beef exports. Rising imports and weaker domestic demand result in exports remaining almost unchanged. High calf prices are expected to limit live cattle exports in 2019 and 2020.
