'Small but important first step in opening up higher value markets for Paraguay beef sector to the USA'
Tue 21 Nov 2023
“The 44,000 ha or 108,890 acre Estancia we are marketing should be attractive to those in the large-scale beef supply or cattle production business.”
Charles Whitaker, Managing Partner.
The decision by the US to reopen its doors from next month to fresh beef exported from Paraguay is being welcomed by our international office.
The move, called a ‘historic milestone’ by Paraguay’s recently elected President Santiago Peña, means that from December 14, fresh beef can be exported to the US for the first time in 25 years.
This Act allows global investors to offset their carbon emissions by purchasing areas in Paraguay with intact eco systems, but in need of protection.
Now, the ability for Paraguay to export its fresh beef to the US is another major boost to the sustainable development of the agricultural sector and land-based economy.
Adam Oliver, Agricultural Business Consultant (International), said: “This is a small but important first step in opening higher value markets for the Paraguay beef sector and therefore, creating additional value opportunities.”
Our international team is marketing one of Paraguay's premier beef operations; a highly developed, large-scale, grass-fed cattle production and breeding asset with a national reputation for high genetic merit breeding stock sales, finished and store cattle.
Carrying capacity has continually improved and current stock numbers (both on the main holding, leased land and share farming arrangements) are currently circa 46,000 head of predominantly high-quality Brangus cattle.
Charles Whitaker, Managing Partner, Brown&Co, said: “We assess Paraguay to be among the lowest cost of global beef producers. With a climate allowing year-round grass growth, the opportunity to export to the US market access where dead weight beef prices are currently approaching double that of Paraguay is very attractive.
“The 44,000 ha or 108,890 acre Estancia we are marketing should be attractive to those in the large-scale beef supply or cattle production business”.
Paraguay was already exporting processed meat to the USA. The latest decision was taken after approval from the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) meaning Paraguayan meat had met its rigorous technical evaluations, guaranteeing the highest standards of animal health quality and food safety.
