Mexico suffers major losses to H7N3 bird flu

The outbreak of H7N3 bird flu in Mexico, which has lasted for more than two years, has so far resulted in the collective death or loss of 28 million broilers and laying hens, according to the Association of Poultry Processors (UNA) in Mexico.

The Mexican industry will spend more than US$ 300 million this year on measures to improve vaccination and biosecurity.

The problems in Mexico have created an opportunity that the Brazilian poultry industry is trying to take advantage of.

After being approved to export poultry meat to Mexico in 2013, Brazil sold more than 3.5 tons to the country in the first five months of this year, and is expected to sell 30,000 tons by the end of the year Mexico is among the three largest importers in the world of chicken meat, buying about 700,000 tons in 2013.
