Second AHDB export webinar explores North America



Written by John Swire

The opportunities for red meat exports to the North Americas will be explored in the second of AHDB’s export webinars next week.

Dana Dickerson, North America head of Food and Drink at the Department for International Trade, will provide a high-level overview of both the US and Canada – two key markets for the UK’s red meat export ambitions.

She will talk about the current market conditions, trading opportunities and how exporters in the UK can export red meat successfully.

Also, in the webinar – ‘View from North America’ – which takes place on July 2, AHDB’s International Market Development Director Dr Phil Hadley will highlight the ongoing work of AHDB to maximise on new and emerging markets.

The webinar will also feature AHDB’s Senior Export Manager for the Americas Susana Morris, who will give a presentation on the programme of activity underway to boost opportunities for red meat exporters in the UK – especially in light of the challenges of COVID-19.

Dr Hadley said: “The North Americas represents a potential growth market for our red meat exporters and work is ongoing to develop new opportunities for both our existing exports and new market access.

“This, our second webinar, promises to be incredibly insightful and vital for any producers looking to export their products beyond the EU. Our first webinar, which looked primarily at the Asian marketplace, proved very popular and we hope to replicate that success in our second webinar.”

AHDB has produced a podcast on the US market, which can be accessed here https://audioboom.com/posts/7613739-trading-with-us-or-them-special-guest-john-wilkes

Written by John Swire

With temperatures forecast to rise above 25°C, cattle producers should be prepared to mitigate the negative effects of heat stress on their beef and dairy animals.

“Cattle are fairly comfortable when the ambient temperature is between 15°C and 25°C over the summer months but if the thermometer rises significantly, production performance will start to suffer,” warns Jacob Lakin from Azelis Animal Nutrition.

“This is because both a milk production and growing beef animal will start to divert energy away from production performance towards keeping cool. You’ll notice if a cow is struggling during a summer heatwave because she will start to salivate heavily and pant...
