USSEC to Participate in Training Session for Dominican Ranchers

USSEC is working with the Dominican Association of Ranchers and Farmers (ADHA) to improve the quality of beef products and reduce production costs to achieve higher profits for producers. ADHA is holding a seminar focusing on the "productive chain of beef cattle from farm to table" on July 29 and 30, with the participation of the Dominican Republic’s Ministry of Agriculture and the Association of Zebu Cattle Breeders (ASOCEBU). USSEC will also participate in this conference.
According to a press release from ADHA, the seminar topics will include the reality of meat production in the Dominican Republic; requirements of national and international markets; export refrigeration conditions; and safety and traceability in Dominican livestock. Other topics to be addressed include fattening steers; animal welfare on the farm; transportation and confinement or management of feedlots; and artificial insemination.
