India is still on track to become the world’s biggest bovine meat exporter in 2013-2014, according to Business Monitor International.

BMI said that US Department of Agriculture data revealed that Indian production of buffalo meat had grown 9.8% in 2012-13, and was forecast to grow by a further 4% in 2013-14 to 4 million tonnes cwe.

It added that the introduction of the Salvaging and Rearing Male Buffalo Calves (SRMBC) law and Utilization of Fallen Animals scheme (UFA) had helped promote the rearing of buffalo bull calves for meat production, and assisted the sector in moving towards its meat sector growth rate target of 10%.
