The meat chain of production involves turnover of R$ 167.5 bi and generates 7 million jobs

Brazil has posted excellent results in the beef cattle segment. In 2013, the gross value of beef production was R$ 51.1 billion, second only to soybeans.  Meat production chain turnover is some R$ 167.5 billion a year, generating about 7 million jobs. Exports are up every year, and are shipped to an increasing number of markets. In 2012, Brazil exported to 142 countries. This gain came about through achievements obtained by protecting agriculture, such as zones considered free of foot-and-mouth disease (FMD).
