USSEC recently worked with poultry and livestock producers in Mexico.
USSEC consultants Carlos Campabadal and Gerardo Luna travelled to the states of Yucatan and Queretaro, Mexico, to provide technical and trade services, as well as to present conferences to poultry and livestock producers in the areas of nutrition, feed quality control and feed technology. The consultants visited two poultry companies and two commercial feed mills in Merida, Yucatan to provide technical service in nutrition and feed quality control, meeting with the director and purchase manager of one of the feed mills to talk about the purchasing process of grains and oil seeds.
In Queretaro, they visited Mexico’s second largest broiler production company, one of the largest companies that imports U.S. soybean meal in the region, and two feedlots. The consultants also met with a director at the country’s second largest milk producing company, discussing U.S. soybean meal quality procedures. In addition, Mr. Luna spoke with this company about the purchase of grain and oil seeds. Topics ranged from feed quality standards and grading practices to contractual terms. At the other companies, main topics were related to U.S. soybean meal quality; feed quality control programs; pellet quality; particle size; animal production parameters; the use of additives; the issues of feeding Clembutirol to beef cattle; and many other nutrition topics.
