Panama's cattle industry is also soon expected to be exporting to Nicaragua once again.
Panamanian farmers plan to export 15,000 veal calves per year to Mexico and are preparing to send thousands of heads to Costa Rica.
Authorities are negotiating better conditions for cattle entering Mexico from Central America.
The Nicaraguan Livestock Federation wants the price of cattle sold to slaughterhouses to be set in dollars.
They warn that if domestic prices are not adjusted and there is no guarantee to maintain the value of the local currency, they will not sell their cattle to local slaughterhouses.
