U.S. Meat Export Federation officials review status of exports at annual planning meeting this week.
Officials with the U.S. Meat Export Federation Tuesday said meat exports are looking good for the year, but absence from Russian markets, along with BSE barriers in China and Australia, continue to be a hurdle to further trade expansion.
The officials met as part of the organization's Strategic Planning Conference in Ft. Worth, TX Nov. 5-7.
A quick review of the year thus far reveals that while Russia and China have presented barriers, market access for U.S. meat in Japan and Hong Kong, along with strong prospects for trade deals, have provided U.S. producers and exporters significant opportunity.
