    Time for Brazil, Chile, Uruguay, Australia, & NZ
    (and Argentina & Paraguay too - if they can stop jumping at shadows)
    to jointly own, manage, and “risk-share”
    the beef-production (abattoir & cold storage) industry
    in the Southern Hemisphere.
    US-American & Brit interests are playing us for fools.
    Their interest ARE NOT our interests.
    Lets get a pan-Australasia-Mercosur,
    grower-owned, professionally managed,
    cooperative, abattoir operating entity (or two)
    up and running NOW.

    It is not 'playing us for fools' to ensure that we conform to standards of inspection and contaminations.

    And, as far as the inability to match contracts with supplies - the smaller part of this is down to 'the weather', the larger part to early excess profit taking without reference to the sustainability of the herds to provide the necessary constancy of flows to market.

    And the west will say unto you.
    Our way- or the highway, your choice
    if you have no standards, then you will have no markets ??
