Cattle ranchers blocked from exporting to Guatemala

CATTLE EXPORT.00_00_32_23.Still001

Livestock producers have been seeing their fair share of difficulties since the COVID-19 pandemic.  Just this past weekend, cattle exporters out west were blocked from what is dubbed an informal trade with Guatemala. 

Livestock producers have been seeing their fair share of difficulties since the COVID-19 pandemic.  Just this past weekend, cattle exporters out west were blocked from what is dubbed an informal trade with Guatemala.  It has been some time now since local livestock producers have been selling their cattle to Guatemalans through Bullet Tree Village, Cayo District.  For years the Belize Livestock Producers Association (BLPA) has had a checkpoint at the entrance of the Calla Creek Road to ensure that the cattle meets all the requirements. Additionally, there is a tagging and permit process by BLPA prior to the exportation of the cattle. This weekend, however, all those formalities played no role for the chairman of Bullet Tree Village as he reportedly implemented a farmers’ fee for them to move their products.  The buyers were unable to cross their cattle into Guatemala and the local livestock producers had to return the money.  Today, Love News reached out to BLPA to gain further insight into the situation, but all they would say is that they have made recommendations to the Minister of Agriculture, Godwin Hulse, and will comment after tomorrow’s Cabinet meeting. Our attempts to reach Hulse and CEO Jose Alpuche were unsuccessful. We will keep following this story.
