U.S. pork  and beef exports were the best of the entire year in November. Both industries are headed for a very strong finish to 2010 judging by November’s year-to-date results..

U.S. Meat Export Federation Economist Erin Daley projects that when December's results are final, 2010 pork exports – which are expected to reach $4.7 billion – will fall just short of the 2008 value record of $4.88 billion but have already set new records in several key foreign markets.

Beef exports should eclipse the all-time value record of $3.86 billion set in 2003 by reaching $3.95 billion.
