U.S. meat sales. What’s a good word to describe this, last year's exports of meat and meat products strong? I would say that's USDA economist Bart Kenner. Now, we only have official trade numbers from last January through November. And maybe you can add an est to that word strong, because for those 11 months, the U.S. exported fourteen point six billion dollars worth of meat products. That's up three percent from fourteen point two billion in the same period in 2019. And that fourteen point six dollars billion number, the highest on record. Historically, export sales of beef have been higher than pork, but in most of 2020, pork had a little bit of an edge as China was buying more pork in the wake of African swine fever, which slashed its pork production. But Kenner says toward the end of last year, pork exports began to drop as China rebuilt its swineherd. And so, with November's 11 percent increase in beef exports and pork’s, four percent dip… beef has reclaimed that first meat export spot. But by a very small margin, less than one percent. Gary Crawford for the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Meat products exports for calendar year 2020 through November are fourteen point six billion. That's up three percent from fourteen point two billion and 2019 the same period. And November exports of 2020 are also up three percent from one point four billion to one point five billion in 2020.
