U.S pork exports decrease
It is reported that the first five months of this year
saw U.S pork exports decrease by 3% year-on-year.
The U.S Department of Commerce revealed that exports to Mexico and Russia
plummeted - Mexico dropped by 30% so far in 2007, while exports to Russia fell
just over 23%.
Despite the drop in exports to Mexico and Russia, there was growth in other
foreign markets such as Japan (11.5%), South Korea (3.1%) and Canada (2.5%),
where exports from the U.S amounted to 1.3 billion pounds of pork in the first
five month of the year.
