OTTAWA, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 05/22/14 -- Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada
Canadian livestock producers will benefit from new export opportunities in Ukraine with the signing of an arrangement allowing exports of pure-bred sheep and goats. Canadian sheep and goat producers can now expand their sales into this market, while also benefiting Ukrainian breeders who will have greater access to Canada's top quality livestock genetics.
Canadian livestock breeders will also benefit from an updated and improved veterinary health certificate for export of pure-bred cattle to Ukraine. This will maintain the access to this market that was first secured for Canadian exporters in August 2012.
-- In 2013, Canadian exports of agriculture and food products to Ukraine were valued at $75 million. Two-way trade between Canada and Ukraine has increased by 65 per cent between 2008 and 2013. -- In 2013, Canada exported over $1.5 million in live breeding cattle to Ukraine.
"Our Government continues to work to create new market opportunities for the Canadian livestock industry. Expanding access in markets like Ukraine creates new opportunities for producers and helps grow our overall economy."
- Gerry Ritz, Agriculture Minister
"The Canadian Livestock Genetics Association (CLGA) is very pleased with this new market access to the Ukraine for live small ruminants. The opportunity to export live breeding animals is a key component to the success of the Canadian livestock industry and we thank the Government of Canada for partnering with our members to further develop the Ukrainian market."
- Michael Hall, Executive Director, CLGA
