The INFLATIONARY PROCESS in the acquisition capacity of agricultural and livestock inputs..

The current inflationary process in Venezuela has damaged all levels of productive, industrial, commercial, agricultural and livestock capital in the country, thus producing an imbalance that hinders and prevents access to them, directly affecting the production of all agricultural products.

We can deduce that inflation is the generalized and accelerated increase of prices that produces harmful effects on the income and expenses of all the entities involved, affecting the supply and demand of any product and/or service, which is equivalent to the increase of the amount of money necessary to obtain the same amount of goods and services, which brings as a consequence the devaluation of any currency.

This problem has led to shortages and hoarding of many products, which in turn leads to price speculation and therefore to a demand greater than the real supply, causing the producer a loss in obtaining finished product and profits in the production process, leading to a severe economic erosion of the agricultural activity.

Within these parameters, it is possible to identify some livestock materials and inputs that have become difficult to find in the market due to the inflationary process, as a result of the scarcity as a direct effect of this economic phenomenon, which includes the following: grass seed, fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, concentrated feed, mineral salts, molasses, medicines, veterinary implements, semen straws, nitrogen tanks, among others..

In addition, it is very important and significant to point out that the most worrying thing is that the rulers in power do not take the necessary corrective measures to get out of the quagmire and specify that with price and exchange controls they will be able to generate the monetary balance of the country./div>

According to the above, every symptom leads to a cause and every cause to a consequence; inflation directly and equally affects savers, investors, lenders, producers and consumers..

The effects of inflation on producers are well known. This situation complicates their profit margin for new investments that favor the growth of their production units.

At the same time, it is notorious that their production levels decrease, reducing the supply of their products and therefore their profit margin, creating an inflationary spiral within them..

The process is similar in organizations whose economic activity is focused on the livestock sector, since the cost of inputs for animal husbandry increases, the production capacity is lower every day, and in many cases the amount of inputs that can be obtained is not enough with respect to the number of animals that are kept, thus lowering their productivity levels and thus accentuating the shortage of milk, meat and all its derivatives.

Likewise, the devaluation of the currency as a consequence of the inflationary phenomenon, makes it difficult to access imported livestock products and inputs, since it is no secret that most of them are acquired outside the country.

In view of this reality, livestock producers are concerned, since most of the inputs are necessary to contribute to the growth and quality of several items, accentuating even more the alert in view of this economic scenario.

Well, at the rate of inflation suffered by virtually all countries, it will be hard for one sector in an economy not to be affected.

greetings @lebey1
you are absolutely right all sectors suffer in an inflationary country, no doubt that world economic policies must change for the global welfare .
