U.S. meat export value moved lower as prices decline
USMEF says the price reductions reflect more abundant red meat supplies and a fiercely competitive international marketplace.
Pork export volume was 171,413 metric tons in February, down one percent from a year ago, while value fell 12 percent to $414.3 million.
February beef exports totaled 83,203 metric tons, up slightly from last year, while value dropped 18 percent to $437 million. ■
