The Meat and Livestock Market Network (MLMN) is administered by the Commodities and Trade Division of FAO. The purpose of this electronic service is to provide an informal forum for the discussion, among subscribers, of issues relevant to the national and international markets for livestock and meat products. Users are requested to enhance the scope of the service by supplying information on current market developments, including on technical and economic factors having an impact on production, consumption, trade, stocks and prices.
The network is open, free of charge, to all the persons or firms that want to subscribe. Registered users are invited to supply articles, publications and statistical reports on the livestock and meat sector in their respective countries/regions. They are also encouraged to post questions and answers on topics of interest related to livestock and meat markets. Contributions are welcome in either English, French or Spanish. FAO will periodically contribute its market reports on livestock and meat issues to this network and act as a moderator, receiving and forwarding participants' messages.
In summary, the two objectives of this new service are:
- the direct exchange of information on livestock and meat markets between List members via the FAO mail server;
- the circulation of FAO's reports dealing with current developments in the world market for livestock and meat products.
For further information regarding the Livestock and Meat Network, please contact: Ms. Rita Ashton
