Palestinian Meat Boycott Leaves Israeli Farmers in the Red

Boycotts usually produce a lot of losers, but in the case of the ban imposed by the Palestinian Authority since the middle of last month, there has been one big winner: Thousands of calves that had been destined for slaughter and served up as the entrée at Palestinian meals have been given a reprieve.

With any warning, the PA ordered a boycott of calves brought in from Israel and that has left Israeli farmers with herds of unsold livestock numbering in the thousands. For the calves that means a few extra months of life, but for the cattlemen it’s a big financial blow.
