South Korea is one of the developed countries in eastern Asia, with per capita income of more than 200,000.But rumors about South Korea can definitely be on the list.This statement has a long history, but is the real situation really?In fact, Koreans can’t afford Han Niu, and this also exposes the malformations of Korean agriculture.
The saying "Korean people can’t afford to eat meat" has a long history, which is not groundless.But where did we have such an impression?This has to mention that one of the cultural output weapons in Korea -Korean drama.
Many Chinese are not unfamiliar with Korean dramas. Whether it is the early "Da Chang Geum", or "Heirs" and "You from the Stars" in the past few years, these have impressed many Chinese people.
In modern Korean dramas, we often hear the protagonist complaining that the meat is expensive, and the clothing has been reducing food for a long time in exchange for a meal of barbecue.Many family gifts will also give priority to Korean cattle as gifts, and the party who receives the gift is often very happy. After all, this is a proper high -end product in the eyes of Koreans.
Of course, Korean dramas are on the one hand, according to the real price of South Korea.South Korea’s meat prices are indeed outrageous, and many international students or people who travel to South Korea can prove.Therefore, for many students living or studying abroad all year round, they often do not open their ravioli for a long time. When they arrive in China, they can’t wait to eat a special meal. All beef and pork are arranged.
All of the above have left the traditional impression of Koreans who can’t afford meat.But do Korean people really can’t afford meat?But in fact, it’s not.
We all know that South Korea is a developed country with a per capita income of more than 200,000, but the national conditions with more resources and less resources will certainly affect the local price level.Therefore, it is not surprising that the local prices are highly natural compared to most cities in China.
From the perspective of the meat sold on the Korean market, the prices of different varieties are different, and the prices of different parts are different.
For example, one kilogram of pork in South Korea is priced at 7,000 yuan, which is about RMB 38.Most of the beef sold on the market is imported beef, which is about twice the price of pork.Compared with domestic prices, although it is slightly higher, considering the country’s income level, it is too exaggerated to afford to eat meat.
Not only that, meat also contains chicken, fish, etc.You must know that the price of chicken is far lower than the price of beef and pork, so it is too exaggerated to say that Koreans can’t afford meat.But why do we often see Koreans eating kimchi crazy and rarely see them eating meat?Is it related to their eating habits?
The answer is by no means this. After all, in the South Korean consumption report, its per capita meat consumption exceeds China.Therefore, they have certain needs for meat.From the above, South Korea’s meat is not outrageous compared to their income level, and it is fully capable of spending.However, Koreans cannot afford to consume Korean cattle.
How expensive is Korean cow?According to the current market price of South Korea, the price of Korean cattle per kilogram is about 100,000 to 140,000, which is about 300-400 yuan.Compared with the general price of beef, the price of the beef is nearly 10 times, and the price of some Korean beef will even exceed 1,000 yuan per kilogram. Of course, this price is a bit expensive.
At the same time, the average monthly income of South Korean families is about 3.858 million, which is about 23,000 yuan. Compared with this, Han Niu is also expensive.In addition, family expenditures also include various expenditures such as houses and cars, so it is almost impossible to eat Korean cows frequently.
In addition, South Korea also regards Han Niu as high -end products, that is, in the consumption point of view, Han Niu is very expensive and is a symbol of famous products.Therefore, most families will choose some major festivals to consume a Korean cow.But these do not mean that Koreans do not often eat beef.Beef imported from Australia, the United States and other regions is their flat alternative of Korean beef.
Therefore, don’t say that Koreans can’t afford to eat beef!What they really can’t afford to eat is Han Niu.
The reason why Korean cow is expensive, which has an inseparable relationship with his breeding, the quality of itself, and the government’s promotion.
First of all, Han Niu’s breeding cost is higher than the cost of ordinary beef.From the perspective of the variety of Korean cattle, this is a special variety. It is a new variety produced by a kind of European beef and a Korean cattle for hybridization.
The Koreans are very concerned about this new hybrid variety. During the feeding process, all kinds of good ingredients and high -end ingredients are fed.In addition, in order to ensure the quality of beef and the number of markets on the market, it requires at least one year of breeding to go out.
This is different from that of cows breeding in ordinary countries and regions. Generally, feed feed is mostly used in countries or regions with developed animal husbandry, and the column time is only a few months.In order to go out as soon as possible, most breeding companies use drugs to ripen and fertilize.
In contrast, Han Niu has a longer production period, higher feed costs, and the labor costs incurred during the period also increased accordingly.Selling is more expensive, it is reasonable.
Secondly, South Korea’s territory is not large, and the development of animal husbandry requires a large area of land.Of course, it is impossible for a country to take all the land to raise a bull.Therefore, the land for raising these boutique cows is also extremely limited.It is reported that the total area of the country’s pasture does not exceed 1%of the country’s total area.There are not large area and relatively small breeding quantity.We all know that things are rare and valuable, and the quality of Han Niu is really good, and it is also very reputable internationally. Therefore, higher prices are also reasonable.
Furthermore, Koreans’s pursuit of the quality of Korean cattle is also the reason why Han Niu’s price is still high.In South Korea, people will divide the grade of Han Niu, with a total of five levels from 1 ++ to 3, of which 1 ++ is the highest.There is no reason. The closer to 1 ++, the higher the fat content, and the taste and taste are also improved. Of course, the price is also rising.In recent years, according to consumer reports, people’s purchase of Korean cattle is more inclined to buy first -class and higher Korean cows.This has continuously increased the market price of Hannong.
In addition, South Korea not only picks quality levels, but also has specific preferences and needs for different parts of Korean cattle.Of course, no matter how you like a certain part, cows will not increase the production of this part, which also leads to imbalanced supply and demand.In the eyes of Koreans, a Korean cow can be used only about 40 % of the whole cattle in the bone and internal organs.
Among these 40 %, Koreans believe that the top products of barbecue only include about 45 kg, and the diaphragm.Other beef hip beef, beef Lin, etc. are about 100 kilograms. Koreans usually use it as soup or other dishes.In addition, some bones such as pork ribs are also used to be used to make barbecue and make soup.
But South Korea is a country where barbecue culture prevails.Most people are very enthusiastic about barbecue, which leads to a surge in demand for linsea and beef waist.However, from the perspective of cattle, this part of this production is relatively small, so there is often a situation where supply and insignificance are in short supply.The price is high, and it is also expected.
Finally, the most important thing is that the South Korean government attaches great importance to Han Niu.A special concept of "body is not the same" in Korean society. Under the influence of this idea, many Koreans think that Korean produces are boutiques.For agricultural products such as beef and vegetables, they all prefer to buy Korean natives.
South Korea is not a big agricultural country, so its cost itself is higher and the price is relatively high.Under the influence of ideas, the number of buyers is more and the price is naturally higher.
In addition, whether it is senior government officials or civilians, South Korea has a high status of Korean cattle.Many local governments will specialize in promoting Korean cow activities and celebrations, and will also invite some stars and celebrities to endorse and platform.Like the young girls we are familiar with, Li Xiaoli, etc., they have played the propaganda ambassador of Han Niu.
Han Niu is now a loud business card for Korean agricultural products. Many people say that Koreans do not have beef at all, but they cannot lose beef.There is a very famous concept in the Korean agricultural market, called "body and soil", which is essentially the product of Korean nationalism flooding to the agricultural market.
The meaning of the body is not the same. It has some meaning in the meaning of "one side of the soil and water, raising one party", but the Koreans have excessively enlarged it and believe that Korean products are the best. Although the price is expensive, the quality must be the quality must begood.Although the imported food is low, the quality is not good.It is this concept that has led to the situation of Korean agriculture towards deformed development.
And Han Niu’s price is also about the "beef crisis" that took place in 2003. In 2001, the United States was the largest importer of Korean beef, which fully guaranteed the demand for Korean beef.However, the US agricultural technology is full, but the safety factor is low.
"Crazy Cow disease" and "cattle plague", which broke out around 2003, have greatly hit American beef production.After eating American beef, the South Korean people appeared death cases, which made the Koreans very dissatisfied and broke out of the parade and asked the government to stop importing American beef.
For domestic pressure, South Korea did stop American beef imports.However, the demand side has not decreased. For a while, the price of Korean beef soared, soaring directly to the price of more than 700 yuan (RMB) per catty, and it was almost catching up with the price of silver.Therefore, Han Niu has left a high price impression on the public.
The basic conditions for agricultural development in South Korea are not good, the arable land is insufficient, the output is not good, and the quality of agricultural products is low. In addition, in recent years, the lack of labor population is not enough, which makes South Korea’s food not meet the market needs.It is said that the innate lack of enough is easy to develop the day after tomorrow. Korean agriculture is a typical representative in this regard.
For the reality of being a "agricultural depression", the Koreans do not accept it, and the hardware cannot be changed. I can only find a way to apply some strength from the software.The tricks they come up are to hang the agricultural and national superiority, which is also the source of the idea of "body and earth".
What we often call things is rare, we all think this is the result of market supply and demand.In fact, it is also a manifestation of collective will. Under the South Korean government and celebrity effects, Han Niu has appeared in the throne level.This is actually on the supply side to perform the operation of painting for prison.
This excessive nationalism involves two major areas of economy and ideology.Now the agricultural crisis broke out in South Korea is precisely the result of this proliferation.
