About agriculture in Egypt
Egypt is known as one of the oldest agricultural civilizations; the river Nile allowed a sedentary agricultural society to develop thousands of years ago. Egyptian agriculture is almost entirely dependent on irrigation. More than 90 percent of Egypt is desert.
Egypt is a net importer of feed ingredients (i.e., grains, milling byproducts, added vitamins, minerals, fats/oils, and other nutritional and energy sources) for livestock and meat production. Sixty percent of its primary feed ingredients (i.e., corn and soybeans) are imported (USDA Foreign Agricultural Service 2017).
Egyptians prefer beef to other types of meat (i.e., poultry and lamb). Egypt’s Ministry of Agriculture and Land Reclamation (MALR) in 2016 estimates the cattle herd to number 8.5 million (4.7 million cows and 3.8 million buffaloes) animals. FAS Cairo forecasts Egyptian beef production reaching 365,000 metric tons in 2018, up 1.4 percent compared to 2017.
According to the statistics service of the United Nations’ Food and Agriculture Organization, Egypt produced more than 953,000 metric tons of poultry meat in 2013, the latest year for which figures have been published.
