Hungary to resume live cattle exports to Turkey
Hungary can again export live cattle to Turkey, after concluding talks with animal health authorities at the World’s Veterinary Association, the Agricultural Ministry announced today, according to Hungarian News Agency MTI.
The cattle will be shipped through Austria and Italy en route to Turkey.
The recent outbreak of the viral disease bluetongue has negatively impacted cattle exports within and outside of the EU, the ministry commented. Resumed sales to Turkey will boost Hungary’s livestock sector.
Ongoing talks with Canada’s chief veterinarian may soon allow for the export of Hungarian beef, pork, poultry, and rabbit products to the country, the ministry added.
