The Beef Workshop within the British Cattle Breeders Conference held at Telford, Shropshire on Monday 21st January 2019 brought exports of UK livestock and genetics into keen focus. Speaking on behalf of the British Livestock Genetics Consortium, Richard Saunders explained the joined-up approach being taken by industry stakeholders to consolidate existing trade as well as open up new markets for British cattle, sheep and pig genetics. In tandem with two Inward Missions bringing prospective sheep and cattle customers to the UK in 2019 were a range of overseas events and expos being planned over all six continents.
With harmonised trading conditions with the EU27 likely to continue at least in the medium term, it was nevertheless important, he said, for farmers and breeding organisations in the medium to long term to look beyond traditional markets. The UK’s strength in depth of livestock both in numbers, breeds and types within breeds alongside its high health and welfare standards meant British breeding stock was in great demand throughout the World.
