CanadaFollowing meetings with Canadian officials, Mongolia has approved imports from Canada of livestock, meat and animal products.

An announcement was made on Tuesday after a meeting in Canada between Mongolian Agriculture Minister Tunjin Badamjunai and Canadian Agriculture Minister Gerry Ritz.

The list of Canadian products available for import to Mongolia now includes live cattle, live pigs, sheep, goat and bovine genetics, day-old chicks and hatching eggs and meat products including all beef and beef products.

"Today's announcement is an important development in relations between our two countries, and opens doors to many new exports and opportunities in agricultural co-operation," Ritz said.

Ottawa's opened a new embassy in Ulaanbataar last year.

Commenting on the decision, Canadian International Trade Minister Stockwell Day said, "We are the second largest foreign investor in Mongolia and our existing strong commercial relationship in the mining sector is broadening into real opportunities for Canada's agricultural producers."

Its very strange thing.
Mongolia has the largest amount of live stock in the world and Mongolia meat is the most delicious meat in the world.

You know, I thought they made a mistake with the report as import should be export.

I do not think Mongolia will be importing meat form Canada. it is more of brining few to create better live stock. Mixing stock to make it better quality. I hope that is the case.

it's about production capacity. . Mongolian cows produce 15/20 lts of milk per day, other species produce 50/60 liters per day....there should be better breeding system...
