NICARAGUA NEWS – The livestock sector attributes the reduction in sales in the first nine months of the year, compared to the same period of 2013, to increased smuggling.

Some 39,800 cattle were exported up to the month of September, according to reports from the Central Bank of Nicaragua. This amount reflects a decline in sales compared to September 2013 when 56,000 heads were exported. “… The statistics also reveal that the total number of slaughtered male animals in 2011 was 501,000, but the number dropped to 444,000 in 2012 and 365,000 in 2013. ”

René Blandon, president pro tempore of the Central American Federation of the Beef Industry (Fecescabo) told Laprensa.com.ni that “…Having shown diminishing returns on registered activities of slaughtered cattle and exports of live cattle, [we see] there is no correlation with the trend seen in previous years and from this we have determined that the traffickers have ventured into livestock. ”

“… Fecescabo is calling on governments in Central America to carry out ​​greater surveillance and border control, so that cattle smuggling be reduced in the isthmus as this activity is used to transport drugs to other countries. ”
