which are purchased and delivered to its feedlots daily. The
cattle, consisting of European
and Brahman breeds, are procured from 200 "interior buying
stations" located throughout
Mexico. This is the first step
toward the company producing quality product consistently
by controlling the supply chain
from the beginning. Cattle
are fed like they are in the US,
in five stages using carefully
formulated feed produced at
each SuKarne complex and all
are fed on site throughout each
day as the animals are strategically moved from the back of
the feedlot toward the back of
the plant in a system of shaded
corrals. Almost immediately
after unloading, the traceability
process begins, with an ear tag
that identifies each animal and
allows it to be tracked during
its stay at the complex.
Segregation of the cattle
begins at the feedlot, first by
gender and later by breed, size

and disposition. Throughout
the feeding process the company manages the growth
of the cattle carefully by producing and controlling the
feed at each stage during the
six-months they spend at the
feedlot. The production process
is an ongoing cycle that progresses each day at all of the
integrated operations.
This allows for a steadier
supply in the plants and a way
to fulfill the market needs in a
more stable way, a top priority
for SuKarne.

Successful cycle
While controlling the growth
of its livestock supply and
maintaining the steady flow
of animals into the feedlot to
replace the cattle entering the
slaughtering plant, it also ensures more humane treatment
of the animals during their stay.
"Our cattle walk, stress-free,
from the feedlot to the plant.
Animal wellness is a top priority

for SuKarne," says Edwin Botero, a respected veteran of the
US meat industry. SuKarne's
subsidiary, VizCattle Inc., has
about 25 employees in the US,
including warehouses in Laredo, Texas, and Calexico, California. Of SuKarne's annual sales,
about 25 percent comes from
exports to US-based retailers,
foodservice operators and further processors.
With the people, technologies and systems now in place,
executives with the beef giant
have their collective sights on
becoming the go-to source of
quality beef to many more customers in the US.
A key part of the strategy is
showing and telling potential
customers that SuKarne is the
best option to increase sales of
quality beef at affordable prices,
without sacrificing food safety,
quality or consistency. Executing that strategy meant first
upgrading the company's operations, from the pasture to the
