American beef is on the list of 104 other American agricultural products that are subjected to high Chinese tariffs. With the world’s largest population, food is no small concern of China. So, if not America, where else?
The shift away from American beef has brought attention to Karan Beef. A South African company, Karan Beef boasts the world’s largest feedlot with a carrying capacity of 160,000 head at any given time. The feedlot is 6,200 acres in size – almost 10 square miles. Karan Beef, seeing an opportunity as the U.S. and China deal with their trade wars, is now expanding its beef exports to China and Asia.
