Abstract

U.S. pork exports have nearly tripled during the past 10 years, reaching 907,000 metric tons in 2005. Exports now account for 13 percent of U.S. pork production. Japan, Mexico, and Canada have underpinned U.S. exports since 2000, when Canada replaced Russia as the third-largest importer of U.S. pork. But U.S. exports to other markets also have made sizeable contributions toward U.S. export success (see Figure 1). Although the individual markets that make up these “other” importers are much smaller than the top three, cumulative exports to these markets have grown quickly. The fi ve markets shown in Figure 2 showed especially strong growth from 2003 to 2005.
