Turkey placed on a ban on live cattle imports last year.

The Turkish market is preparing to re-open for weanling bulls.

The Turkish Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry has confirmed that live imports will resume shortly.

Turkey placed on a ban on live cattle imports last year. Turkish cattle producers had been struggling to compete with low prices of imported cattle in the home market.

Projected figures

Turkey imported 689,076 head of cattle in 2019, which equates to a 52% drop from the previous year.

Turkish cattle imports are estimated to be slightly higher this year than in 2019 to compensate for a feeder cattle population shortage as a result of the restriction on feeder cattle imports in 2019, according to a report published by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA).

The number of cattle in Turkey is estimated to grow by 1.2 % in 2020 to 18.1 million animals.

This is due to favourable government subsidies and continuing feeder cattle imports albeit at a lower volume, the report states.
