SADER Jalisco Promotes Livestock Sector with Purchase of Sires from Jalisco Livestock Expo

With the expectations of supporting up to 150 producers, SADER will purchase sire animals exhibited at the Jalisco Livestock Expo 2021 held October 21-November 14.

Due to the importance of Jalisco livestock in the country's bovine genetics and sheep and goat species, the Jalisco Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (SADER,) will once again stimulate the acquisitions of sire animals in favor of livestock breeders.

The director of Livestock Development of the state agency, Carlos Villalobos Romo,

explained that “during the three weeks (of its duration), we are going to install an office, we are going to have staff. We are labeling a bag of three million pesos that is focused on people who want to acquire excellent quality sires. Here we have a breeding ground for cattle genetics.”

He specified that support is expected for 150 producers of livestock breeds and sheep and goat breeds, given the growing take-off of the so-called minor species. He stated that the limit of the support will be up to 20,000 pesos or up to 50% of the value of the animal already invoiced.

Everything is ready for the 2021 Jalisco Livestock Expo to be held from October 21 to November 14 at its traditional headquarters in the facilities of the Jalisco Regional Livestock Union in San Pedro Tlaquepaque.

On this occasion, the exhibition will be dedicated to Don Carlos Sánchez Llaguno (1921-1988,) an emblematic character of Jalisco cattle ranching and charrería. In his career in charro canvases, the prestige of Jalisco was forged, as a benchmark for the most Mexican of sports.

The president of the state livestock organization, Adalberto Velasco Antillón, said that it already has the approval of the municipal government to carry out the livestock sample, and in addition to that it also has the permission of the health table.

The purchases are intended to promote the economic reactivation of the livestock sector, and for this an agenda has been defined that will be carried out in several stages.

The first will be from October 21 to 31 with the exhibition of Cebuinas, Brangus, Limousin and Italian breeds. In addition, at this stage, Quarter and Pinto horses will be exhibited, along with Pelifolk sheep. In this phase, the XXXI National Limousin Exhibition is scheduled.

Velasco Antillón also explained that the fundraising for girls and boys with cancer will once again be held at La Granjita, the children's section of the livestock show. He said that this year the goal is to exceed 400,000 pesos from the previous year.
