    @1 Aussie Our Uruguayan beef commands a higher price than Oz and probably why Chileans can only afford Oz or Paraguayan beef? We are quota restricted to the US but the Korean and hopefuly also the Japanese markets will very soon be open to us so watch out OZ!
    Chinese buy a lot of the inferior cuts from us also and I think that our Meat Corporation has recently opened two topflight restaurants in Shanghai and Macoa to penetrate the top end of the market with selected Angus and Hereford cuts. So Aussie croppies beware or you will soon be playing catchup with us Uruguayans
