China top weekly buyer of U.S. pork, sorghum

The USDA says China was the biggest buyer of U.S. pork during the week ending March 12th. China bought 15,700 tons, just under half of the weekly total, following the previous week’s record cancellation by Beijing. China was also the leading buyer of U.S. sorghum and the second biggest for cotton, while unknown destinations topped the list for soybeans. Beef sales were up on the week, while corn and wheat were down. The USDA’s next set of supply and demand estimates is out April 9th.
