"The role of graslands in world food trade: some projected impacts of future trade policy reforms"
by Rae, Allan

Consumption of livestock products has been increasing rapidly, especially in the developing world. Demand for non-ruminant meats has been increasing more rapidly than that for ruminant meats. This has been accompanied by rapid supply growth, especially in industrial grains-based livestock production systems. As a consequence, the importance of grasslands in livestock production and trade has been declining. Barriers to trade in livestock products generally much higher for products that can be produced on grasslands (ie dairy products and ruminant meats) than for non-ruminant meats, despite the achievements of the Uruguay Round. A new WTO Round of agricultural trade negotiations began in March 2000, and this paper simulates outcomes of possible new trade agreements. Certain reductions in protection and trade barriers are projected to provide a boost to grasslands livestock farming and therefore to moderate the downward trend in grasslands’ contribution to livestock production and trade.
