So far this year, 215.1 million pesos (around $9 million) have been allocated to boost livestock production in Mexico, through an increase in the availability of breeding livestock.

Coordinator General of Livestock of SAGARPA, Everardo González Padilla said that this had reduced the imports of genetics and livestock significantly, making the country more self sufficient.

Another programme, the Sustainable Livestock Production and Management Programme has boosted productivity and adoption of sustainable technologies in the livestock industry.

Mexican live cattle exports have increased significantly over the past year, with a 18 per cent increase in live cattle sent to the US.
