The Egyptian livestock sector is currently undergoing rapid changes in government policies and in demand for meat . In order to examine the implications of these changes for meat supplies and prices, and to evaluate alternative policies for the future, a quadratic programming model of supply and demand for the sector is developed. This model is used to examine policies, concentrating on meat and feed imports and feed ration distribution. I conclude that only large increases in imports can prevent decreases in per capita meat consumption.
