Tridge summary

Cattle and meat exports from Colombia have been growing significantly and the Caribbean Coast plays a fundamental role in this aspect, so fattening cattle in this region must be as competitive as possible. According to a study carried out by Agrosavia in the department of Córdoba, one of the main challenges faced by producers in this region, in the short and medium-term, is to improve production indicators and the objective is to have a more productive region with better meat quality. Among the strengths and opportunities that the livestock sector has in this region is its proximity to seaports, the existence of accredited slaughter plants for the benefit of cattle and for the export of carcasses and cuts. Additionally, there is its deep-rooted cattle culture. However, among the weaknesses of the meat production system in this region, according to Agrosavia, is the fluctuation in the quantity and quality of food supplied throughout the Productive cycle.
