RED MEAT SECTOR AFTER ACCESSION OF POLAND TO THE EU

 

 

ABSTRACT. Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) has a small effect on pork and beef market in Poland in spite of the fact that it has a wide range of instruments at its disposal. Elimination of customs barriers after the accession of Poland to the European Union in May 2004 increased the trade of pork and beef mainly with the Community countries what resulted, first of all, from domination of our prices – in respect of producers as well as of processors. Beef livestock producers were the first who benefited from this situation because the prices of beef after 2004 began to increase and the regress of slaughter cattle management in Poland was inhibited.
