The company SuKarne has introduced a program to import and sell a thousand high-quality studs from the Simbrah and Brangus beef breeds to raise the performance of Nicaraguan cattle ranching.

Wednesday, October 25, 2017

An article on Elnuevodiario.com.ni reports that the Mexican Sukarne presented a project that seeks "to improve genetics, that is to say, more meat in less time."

" ...The zones that will prioritize the program of the Mexican transnational are in the north and center of Nicaragua. Each stud animal, according to company technicians, has a capacity to cover 25 cows; however, this can be extended to 100, said the director of Supply of SuKarne, Alfredo Beltran Felix."

The stallions will be delivered in the first instance to the current suppliers of Sukarne in Mulukukú, New Guinea, Muelle de los Bueyes, at a price of $2,500 each.
