Reasons why Romania is one of the best countries in cattle export field
For those who don’t know so much about Romania and why it is so well known for cattle export, here are some arguments that might make you take it into consideration next time:

According to the Romanian Livestock Annual Report 2016, Romania had around 2.5 million head of cows. The main countries to which Romania exports cattle livestock are Croatia, Israel, Jordan, Spain, Italy, Libya, Hungary, Greece, but there are also many others.
Having such a great livestock, it’s not surprising that this is the main reason for which Romania is one of the best countries that deals in cattle export.
2. The country’s favorable climate
Located at the crossroads of Central, Southern and Eastern Europe, Romania has access to the Black Sea, while having a great continental climate, mixed with an oceanic and Mediterranean climate. Therefore, generally speaking, summers are hot and dry, with average annual temperatures between 22 and 24 degrees Celsius. Precipitation is modest, but enough to allow the vegetation to grow. Winters are usually cold, with average annual temperatures between 3 and -15 degrees Celsius.
So, the favorable climate not only promotes vegetation growth, but also allows animals to grow healthy and muscular.
3. The favorable and strategic localization
Being situated at a central location between Western Europe and Middle Eastern countries, Romania can maintain a good trade relationship with many countries around the Mediterranean Sea, with those from the Middle East, North Africa or with those from Western Europe.
As such, due to all these reasons and taking advantage of the Black Sea and the Mediterranean Sea, the transport takes a lot less time and the risk of animal suffering during the transition is greatly reduced.
4. Romania has a lot of well-trained farmers
Due to the fact that in Romania agriculture is a long-standing tradition, together with the fact that technology leaves its mark in this field every year, the farmers are far more skilled and better prepared than they were in the past. As such, they are able to take really good care of the cattle obtained from import or for those raised for exports.
