Surveys by the Brazilian Animal Protein Association (ABPA) show that Brazilian exports of poultry genetics, including fertile eggs and genetic material, totalled 1,607 thousand tons in August. The volume exceeds shipments from the same period last year by 23.6%, with 1,300 thousand tons.

In revenue, a slight increase of 0.1% was recorded in August, with US$15.709 million in 2023, against US$15.692 million in 2022.

Between January and August, the accumulated increase in exports of poultry genetics reaches 78.3%, with 17,295 thousand tons shipped in the first eight months of this year, against 9,698 thousand tons exported in 2022.

In the same comparative period, accumulated revenue reached US$162.1 million, a result 47% higher than the total made between January and August 2022, with US$110.3 million.

The main importer of poultry genetics from Brazil, Mexico was the destination of 10,429 thousand tons between January and August this year, a number 171% higher than that recorded in 2022. Other highlights were Senegal, with 2,262 thousand tons (-20%), Paraguay, with 1,789 thousand tons (-1%) and Peru, with 1,402 thousand tons (+1200%).

“This year, the poultry genetics export sector has reinforced its presence in new frontiers in the Americas, especially supporting production centers' impacted by outbreaks of avian influenza," said Ricardo Santin, president of ABPA. "These are important currencies that also attest to the recognition of these importing nations regarding the health status of our country, since biosecurity is a mandatory point for shipments in this productive segment."
