Nicaragua’s livestock exports to Venezuela tripled this year. Beef on the hoof up by more than double, say ranchers

Thursday, November 24, 2011

Nicaragua has exported 10,996 calves during 2011 to Venezuela -- an increase of 120 percent compared to 2010, according to information provided by Salón Guerrero, the president of the ranchers’ federation, Feganic.

Guerrero added that livestock exports to Venezuela totaled $143 million, three times the amount recorded in 2010.

Guerrero stressed that Nicaragua-Venezuela ties have favored Nicaragua's stockbreeding sector, as beef exports are highly priced in the Venezuelan market.
