Introduction

Since its foundation in 1977, under section 14 of the Meat and Livestock Act (Ch 214), the Belize Livestock Producers Association (BLPA) has been promoting the improvement of the livestock industry in Belize through its objects as outlined in the ACT. Over the years, the association has made significant strides towards a more organized and viable livestock industry. One such accomplishment is the implementation of a Belize National Sanitary Cattle Plan Project, funded by the European Union, that paved the way for the establishment of the Belize Livestock Registry (BLR). The BLR is fundamental in preparing the industry for the export of cattle and meat as it provides for a recognized national registry of traceability and accountability. Currently, the BLPA represents over 5,200 cattle producers nationwide with a total herd of 187,294 animals.
