Among the challenges to be faced, he pointed out, the lack of fertilizers and grains, which puts at risk the productivity of the world’s primary sector and, therefore, global food security, coupled with speculation and an inflationary spiral in agricultural supplies and food.

Villalobos extolled that, given this situation, the Government of Mexico established an anti-inflationary plan, with the support of producers and private initiative, which is based on increasing agricultural, livestock, aquaculture and fishing productivity, with respect for the environment, sustainable and inclusive.

For his part, the leader of the CNOG, Homero García de la Llata, stated that the strengthening of the national livestock sector will only be possible with the support of the federal government, the Legislative Power and the ranchers themselves.
