Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 15, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Tuesday, May 1973 THE LETHBBIDGE HERALD 17 Latin America eyes Alberta cattle EDMONTON (CP) The po- tential market for Alberta beef and dairy breeding stock in Mexico and Latin America is excellent, says an Alberta agri- cultural marketing officer. A. G. Curtin, on his recent re- turn from a marketing mission to Mexico, Venezuela, Colom- bia, Costa Rica and Guatemala, Bald Alberta is in an enviable position to develop suth mar- kets in those countries. He said the Latins' main in- terest is in such "exotic" breeds of beef as Charolais, Limousan and breeds which have been used and de- veloped by Alberta ranchers. "There also was a great deal of interest in the Hereford and Angus breeds for use in the northern areas of Mexico, the highland regions of Colombia and other cooler Mr. Curtin said. He said export prospects for dairy breeding stock are good to excellent in Venezuela and Gua- temala, good in Colombia and fair in Costa Rica. "Mexico will take all the Holstein cattle they can get." The Holstein breed evidently attracted the most interest in the area of any dairy breed. In addition to live animals, Mr. Curtin added, the potential market for frozen semen is "ex- tremely encouraging." However, he added the mar- ket needs assistance to develop. Although the artificial insemina- tion method of breeding is not widespread in Mexico or Latin America, the use of the proce- dure is being given increasing emphasis through livestock im- provement and breed up-grad- ing programs being started in those countries.
