From September 1, 2021 to June 30, 2022, Mexico exported to the United States a total of 718,025 head of cattle for fattening purposes (590,512 males and 127,513 females) from the states of Chihuahua, Sonora, Durango, Coahuila, Tamaulipas, Nuevo León, Veracruz and Campeche, which met the animal health requirements of the U.S. health authorities, generating an estimated 11,644 million pesos.

Likewise, the Republic of Cuba, through its National Center for Animal Health (CENASA), renewed the authorization of a company to export balanced feed for animal consumption (aquaculture) to that country and granted a new company the authorization to export the aforementioned goods, favoring the marketing of more than 6,400 tons of feed for consumption by aquaculture species.

With regard to imports, Mexico continued to monitor and follow up on cases of health emergencies for highly pathogenic avian influenza (AI) and African swine fever in European Union countries, as well as AI in Canada and the United States to modify the animal health requirements for entry into Mexico or prohibit the import of goods considered to be of high animal health risk.

Mexico continues to communicate with the various authorities of Central American countries to move forward with negotiations on the importation into Mexico of cattle for terminal fattening and immediate slaughter.
