Colombian beef exports curbed by foot-and-mouth

Thursday, July 13, 2017

Russia and Curacao, two of Colombia’s biggest beef buyers, have suspended shipments from the Andean nation after an outbreak of foot-and-mouth disease, Colombian officials said.

A ship carrying beef to Russia was turned back when its authorities were notified about diseased animals in Colombia, Jose De Silvestri, head of the northern cattle ranchers association, said.

Beef exports to Chile and Peru have also been suspended.
