Korean Cattle Trade Mission November 27 December 3, 1983, Southern U.S.
Trade Association (SUSTA), in cooperation with the State Departments of
Agriculture of the 15 southern states and Puerto Rico, will carry out a trade
mission in this valuable market to take advantage of the excellent sales
opportunities that exist. The sales mission will consist of a maximum of
seven (7) people: six (6) cattle exporters and a team leader, Donald Joyner,
Livestock Specialist, Virginia Department of Agriculture. The teams itinerary
will include meetings with the Government of Korea cattle importing agencies,
visits to cattle farms, and a reception, which will be attended by over forty
(40) people involved in Korea's cattle industry.

Participation in this trade mission is limited to members of the 16 SUSTA
state as follows: Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana,
Maryland, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee,
Virginia, West Virginia and Puerto Rico.

In calendar year, 1982, the Government of Korea (G.O.K.) imported nearly 10
million dollars worth of U.S. cattle. According to Agricultural Trade
Officers, Korea has maintained this strong buying trend and will most probably

secure 50,000 head of cattle in calendar year 1984. Primarily interested in
cooler climate breeds of cattle such as Charolais and Herefords, tenders have
been issued for Brahman and Santa Gertrudis animals. As far as the dairy
breeds are concerned, Korea has favored the Holstein breed.

Special travel arrangements have been made by a New Orleans travel agency.
Round trip airfare and 6-day hotel accommodations in Seoul will cost $1497.
This rate is good for many cities throughout the south. CONTACT: Ben

The Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS) of the U.S. Department of Agriculture
(USDA) will sponsor the U.S.A. Pavilion at SIAL '84, (the International Food
Products Exhibition) in Paris, France, June 18-22, 1984. Participation in the
U.S.A. Pavilion is open to any U.S. food products manufacturer. The SIAL show
is one of the largest trade-only food shows in Europe, second only to the
ANUGA show in Cologne, West Germany. SIAL is held every other year in Paris,

In 1984, the show was changed from its traditional fall dates to June 18-22,
to secure more space and better serve its international clientele. The SIAL
is truly an international exhibition with 3,019 exhibitors, 36 percent of whom
were from 62 countries outside France. Of the estimated 200,000 visitors, 31
percent came from countries outside France. At the U.S.A. Pavilion in the
1982 SIAL, 60 U.S. companies exhibited.

The French market for processed food products is keenly competitive but very
lucrative. Of total U.S. food and agricultural exports in 1982, 43 percent
were high-value food products, equaling $263 million. But the importance of
the SIAL goes beyond France. Major decision-makers in the food industries of
all EC-10 countries attend, as well as buyers from other European countries
like Sweden, Norway, Switzerland, Austria, Spain and Portugal. This show also
attracts buyers from the Mid East countries and Northern Africa. For more
information and details on participation, interested companies may contact:
