Trade, the Expanding Mexican Beef Industry, and Feedlot and Stocker Cattle Production in Mexico

by Kenneth Mathews and Rachel Johnson

Outlook No. (LDPM-206-01) 24 pp, August 2011

This report characterizes Mexican feeder-calf and fed cattle production systems in the context of the imports of Mexican feeder cattle into the United States. The increase in cattle feeding in Mexico will increasingly affect U.S. feeder cattle imports and U.S. beef exports to Mexico in ambiguous ways as Mexican population and incomes increase. Cattle production also depends on geo-climatic factors, disease and pest challenges, feeding systems, and feeder cattle export patterns.
