Halstrom Comments on Record Beef Exports, Rebounding Pork Exports in 2022


Exports of U.S. beef for the year have surpassed the $10 billion mark for the just the second time and are on pace to approach $12 billion when all 2022 shipments are tallied.

Pork exports, meanwhile, have shown an expected rebound in the second half of the year, but will fall short of the records set in 2020 and 2021, which were driven in part by African swine fever in China.
