Brazilian meat packers lose up to $25 million a day after suspending sales to China over mad cow fears

SAO PAULO, March 15 (Reuters) – Brazilian beef packers are losing $20 million to $25 million a business day after a self-imposed trade ban halted sales to China, agribusiness consultancy Datagro Pecuaria said.
