Surveys by the Brazilian Association of Animal Protein (ABPA) show that Brazilian exports of poultry genetics (including 01-day chicks and fertile eggs) totaled 2,650 thousand tons in May, a performance 10.9% higher than the total obtained in the same period last year, with 2,389 thousand tons.

In the same period, sales of poultry genetics generated revenue of US$ 18,934 million, a balance 10.6% lower than the same period of 2023, with US$ 21,185 million.

In the year, exports of poultry genetics accumulated between January and May reached 12,855 thousand tons, a number 2.2% higher than that recorded in the first five months of 2023, with 12,577 thousand tons. The revenue obtained in the period reached US$ 98,587 million, a 12.8% lower than the same period last year, US$ 113,053.

The main destination of poultry genetics exports, Mexico imported 4,750,000 tons between January and May, a number 40.6% lower than the total recorded in the same period of the previous year. On the other hand, South Africa - which recently started its imports of the Brazilian product - imported 2,955 thousand tons in the same period, and is already positioned as the second main destination. In third place is Senegal, with 2,157,000 tons, a number 54.9% higher than that recorded in the same period last year.

"We have a reconfiguration in the flow of poultry genetics in Brazil, which now finds in the nations of Africa its main international destination. The health status of Brazil has been a crucial point for the continuity of the good performance of sales of this high value -added segment, especially for markets that have been suffering the impacts of Avian Influenza," said Ricardo Santin, president of ABPA.
