Pace remains sluggish for U.S. pork, beef exports

USMEF

January through July exports of U.S. pork and beef are lagging behind last year’s pace amid a difficult global economic climate and lingering effects from the H1N1 influenza outbreak. The most recent statistics released by USDA and compiled by the U.S. Meat Export Federation (USMEF) show pork exports of 1.08 million metric tons (2.38 billion pounds) valued at $2.53 billion. While these totals are a respective 10 percent and nine percent below last year’s record-shattering pace, they are still 53 percent higher in volume and 48 percent higher in value than in January-July 2007.

Beef exports of 512,053 metric tons (1.13 billion pounds) valued at $1.944 billion are six percent below last year’s volume and 10 percent lower in value. This difference, however, is primarily due to a very sluggish global market for beef variety meat. Beef muscle cut exports of 338,217 metric tons (745.6 million pounds) are actually slightly above last year’s volume, while trailing in value ($1.445 billion versus $1.48 billion) by only 2 percent.
