Data recently released by Costa Rica's National Institute of Statistics and Census (INEC) and the National Livestock Company (Corfoga) show that beef prices increased by 2.03 percent in April this year from a year earlier.
The Costa Rican newspaper La Nación reported on April 15 that Jorge Segura, coordinator of the National Livestock Program of the Costa Rican Ministry of Agriculture and Livestock (MAG), analyzed that the factors that influenced the price increase included the decrease in the supply of beef (fewer calves were born and fewer beef imports) and the increase in market demand.
In addition, a number of females are slaughtered and sold during pregnancy, which limits the number of beef cattle. According to Campos, a portion of beef cattle farmers, especially small ones, do not know if the cows they sell are pregnant. Luis?ngel Alfaro, president of the Costa Rican Livestock Auction Association, said that about 140,000 pregnant cows are slaughtered in Costa Rica each year.
