US - The United States exported over 1.7 billion pounds of pork products in 2003, more than 6 percent above the previous year’s total. Japan, Mexico, and Canada together accounted for almost 80 percent of total U.S. pork exports. A lower valued dollar and economic growth created demand for U.S. pork products last year. The same factors, together with disease-related foreign market closures to beef and poultry will likely spur U.S. pork exports this year.
