What will happen to the price of meat when exports are released

Regarding the position of the national government, this week it was the vice president of the Nation, Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, who took advantage of a note made by the TN channel, considered by many as an opposition media, to refer to the stabilized prices of meat. He did it through a post on Twitter in which he reproduced the interview with a butcher.

Rizzo, interviewed on Radio Nihuil by Marcelo Sisso and Federico Zalazar, pointed out in this regard: “As a palliative, the export stocks have been a good brake on the increase in meat because it achieved the Government’s mission. Now, in the future, this will be detrimental because the producer does not place cattle to gain weight and in 3 or 4 months we’re going to have a negative impact. “

Politically, the stocks had a positive impact and managed to maintain prices for 60 days and even lower them in some cuts Politically, the stocks had a positive impact and managed to maintain prices for 60 days and even lower them in some cuts

“Prices fell or were maintained, it is true, but we, who walk through the fields and go to the fairs, see that the farms are not closing as before and we are worried,” said the businessman.

Why didn’t meat prices go up?

José Rizzo explained that “the livestock issue has several factors that influence the prices that arrive at the counters. For example, when the export is closed, that steer that the refrigerators used to export and that is a large steer of between 480 and 500 kilos, That normally consumes the international market, it remained in the domestic market. With the Prices Cared and in association with the supermarkets, the price of this type of steer fell. So the other categories of meat have not been able to continue increasing “.

“But – the leader clarified – aside from that we also have a recession and a drop in meat consumption, which is really alarming. People are not consuming meat. “

Faced with this situation of the brake on steer exports, market earnings that continue to be normal and sales decline, the price has not changed for two months. On the contrary: there are some soft cuts that have suffered casualties Faced with this situation of the brake on steer exports, the market income that continues to be normal, and the drop in sales, the price has not changed for two months.

What will happen when exports are released

Rizzo said that “it is a lifelong problem in our country that everything that generates an international market impacts the domestic market. In the future, the producer who had a steer and prepared it for export at the price it had, now goes to think about whether to continue producing or not. Obviously the producer is not going to produce that steer and there will be a shortage. If this is maintained, there will be no merchandise and this will undoubtedly impact the price. “

“The consequences are paid, as in other times”, closed the meat manager.
