Ukraine Will Allow Imports of Live Canadian Cattle, Agency Says

August 27, 2012

Canadian producers can ship live cattle to Ukraine for genetics and breeding purposes, the Canadian Agriculture Ministry said.

Access to the market in Ukraine may be valued at about C$12 million ($12.1 million) over the next three years, Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada said today in an e-mailed statement. Canada shipped cattle to Ukraine only once in the 1980’s as part of a project for artificial insemination, according to the agency’s statement.
