Beef and Pork Exports Edge Higher for the Year

Washington--Combined U.S. beef and pork exports to date in 2010 total roughly $7 billion, up 16 percent in volume and 27 percent in value, according to the U.S. Meat Export Federation.

According to Phil Seng, president and CEO of the USMEF, despite pork being much more competitive, U.S. pork exports are up 3 percent in volume and 9 percent in value. Mexico is the largest market for U.S. pork on a volume basis; Japan is No. 1 on a value basis.
