Drought in Bahia may result in losses of up to 40% in livestock farming

The drought that has affected more than 2.7 million people in Bahia has also impacted agriculture and livestock farming, and production losses have been estimated at 20% to 40%. According to the Bahia Federation of Agriculture and Livestock Framing (Faeb) in 90 days small towns will begin to feel the impact of beef shortages and a resultant increase in prices.

Milk production has fallen by about one third, to 1.5 million gallons per day. With a 60% reduction in the production in the sector, the cities of Itapetinga, Jequié and Itabuna have felt the main impact of drought.

Faeb considers bean and corn that has not yet been harvested to have been lost. In many cities, there was no way to plant. Supply must be sought from Minas Gerais and Paraná.
