Producers are concerned about the low price of meat

As explained by Marcos Pereira, president of the Consortium of Livestock Farmers for Agricultural Experimentation (CEA), the low price of beef worries the producing sector, since this could affect their investments. “We are below the 3 dollars per kilo carcass that we are receiving, last year in this period we were with 3.70 more or less and the export price of the meat was lower,” he commented. The situation generates uncertainty in production because there is a lack of predictability. “Today we are in a moment of total uncertainty on the part of production, that is not positive because it directly reflects the investment made by the farmer looking to the future. The worst thing that can happen is a lack of predictability in a business,” he said.
