URUGUAY - Uruguayan beef exports during the financial year to March were up by 27 per cent to 203,465 tonnes year-on-year, as trade recovers after 2008’s financial crisis.

Analysts at Meat and Livestock Australia said that the major increases were recorded to Russia (up 90 per cent to 61,744 tonnes) and Asia (up 122 per cnet to 22,773 tonnes).

Meanwhile, exports to the US continued to fall by 28 per cnet year-on-year to 15,184 tonnes, as Uruguay takes advantage of higher prices in other destinations and negotiates E.coli recall procedures, MLA says.

Exports to the EU (mainly Germany and Spain) surged by 34 per cnet to 5,549 tonnes swt in March, taking advantage of the scarce Argentinean supplies in this market.
