Beef is a high growth industry in China as consumption is growing. Rabobank reported per capita consumption of pork is 40kg, 13 kg for chicken and 6 kg of beef. Last year, China’s beef imports from mainly Australia, Uruguay, New Zealand, Canada and Argentina exceeded 300,000 mt at a value of USD 1.33 billion. Year-to-date this is being exceeded by 30%. Countries vying for this market are Uruguay, Argentina, Brazil, North America, Europe, India and Australia. Japan is driving production from Holstein with a 10,000 Holstein head feedlot in proximity with the 40,000 head dairy farms in Shangdong Province. Imports from Argentina have increased in 2015 with 35% of Argentina exports now going to China because of slowing exports due to recession in Russia.

China is one of the remaining large markets that remains completely closed to U.S. beef but BSE visits to USA have been concluded. The Hong Kong market agreed in June 2014 to further expand access for imports of U.S. beef.
