Monday, April 13, 2009

By selling at a price slightly lower than usual, Nicaraguan cattle farmers have found the palliative in the Venezuelan market for the shrinkage of their traditional markets, especially the United States. However, it is unknown how stable this new market will be.

In statements that Gisella Canales Ewest reported in her article in, the chairman of the board of the National Commission of Livestock of Nicaragua (CONAGAN), René Blandón, said: "The Venezuelan market has been a good solution to this situation for cattle farmers because the market in Venezuela, following the six-thousand ton agreement, was accelerated after the crisis in other markets. And there is a differentiated price, better than in other markets."
