Mixed week for export numbers

Mixed week for export numbers

Pork exports were down on the week but remained higher than average. For the week ending February 27th, the USDA says pork sales were nearly 34,000 tons, a little bit lower than the week before, but still above the four-week average, mainly to Mexico, China, and Japan. Beef exports continued to dip, with the weekly total 26% below average, corn export sales were also lower than average, and while sorghum was down sharply from the previous week’s marketing year high, China was still a significant buyer.
