Russia Announces New Poultry Quota

The Russian Government published a resolution on November 12, 2005, which increased the poultry quota volume for 2006. The new poultry quota volume is 1.09 million metric tons (MMT), of which the United States is allocated 881,900 MT. The previously approved poultry import quota was 1.05 MMT, including 771,900 MT for the United States. Allocations for other countries were not specified in the new resolution.

Foot and Mouth Disease in Brazil Also Affects Poultry Exports

Brazil confirmed an outbreak of Food and Mouth Disease in Mato Grosso do Sul (MGS) on October 9, 2005. Following the guidelines of the OIE and the WTO’s sanitary and phytosanitary (SPS) agreement, Brazil divided its territory into five regional markets in an effort to manage sanitary controls more effectively.

Several countries reacted by banning poultry product imports from Brazil. Russia banned poultry products from Mato Grosso do Sul, which had 8.3 % of the poultry market share for January-September 2005. Ukraine banned poultry products from Mato Grosso do Sul and neighboring Parana, which had 0.3 % of the market share for the same period. Indonesia and Namibia banned poultry products from all of Brazil, although Brazil had not exported poultry to those countries this year.
