Colombian poultry and hog sectors want support to export

In Colombia, the poultry and hog subsectors have the best growth and behavior levels in terms of agriculture. However, the lack of clear policies to provide farmers with benefits, and the delay in regulating them have prevented the country from participating in the competitive international market again.

Both sectors make the highest investments in animals, machinery, labor and infrastructure works. Last year, the Colombian poultry farming exceptionally grew 11.1%. The expectations for this year are not so high (3.2%), but they include a deep analysis of the domestic market. Yet the Newcastle disease is still a threat that needs an eradication plan – otherwise foreign trade operations will not occur.

On the other hand, hog farmers set the goal of duplicating the production for the next seven years so that their participation is not reduced before the imported product. The Asoporcicultores, Colombian association of hog farmers, requested support from the Ministry of Agriculture to obtain a sanitary passport which allows entry in countries such as Korea, Russia, Japan and China.
