SHARE NOW

The week ending February 8th was a big week for pork export sales. The USDA says pork sales were up sharply on the week, with strong demand from two key trading partners – Mexico and China. Physical shipments of pork were also strong. Corn, soybean, and rice export sales were also above the previous week, while sorghum hit a marketing year low. Export trade is driven by several factors, including the value of the dollar relative to other currencies and seasonal changes in supply.
