India is the second largest exporter of beef in the world #BeefBan

According to the data from  U.S. Department of AgricultureIndia exported 2.4 million tonnes of beef and veal in FY2015, compared to 2 million tonnes by Brazil and 1.5 million by Australia. These three countries account for 58.7 per cent of all the beef exports in the world. India itself accounts for 23.5 per cent of global beef exports. This is up from a 20.8 per cent share last year.It must be noted, however, that the U.S. government classifies even buffalo meat as beef.India earned as much as $4.8 billion in 2014 by export of buffalo meat.
