January-February poultry exports drop 11% as Mexico helps boost egg sales to new record

Exports of U.S. poultry meat for the first two months of the year declined by 11 percent to 578,727 metric tons, while value slipped by 10 percent to $743.3 million, according to trade data released by the Foreign Agricultural Service.

A perfect storm of factors seems to be behind the drop, including ongoing avian influenza issues in the U.S., a strong dollar, and low oil prices that affect the buying power in numerous markets.

Meanwhile, January-February exports of U.S. table eggs set new records for the period in both volume and value, in large part because of huge increases in shipments to Mexico. Total table egg exports reached 29.58 million dozen, up 29.9 percent, while value rose by 30.1 percent to $31.02 million.

U.S., South Africa governments tell industries to settle their differences, end poultry dispute

As South African Minister of Trade and Industry Rob Davies leads a delegation to Washington this week for a scheduled meeting with the U.S. Trade Representative on trade and investment issues, renewal of the African Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA), and the poultry dispute that threatens to derail it, all eyes will instead be on Lisbon.

There, in the Portuguese capital, on the sidelines of the International Egg Commission conference, USAPEEC President Jim Sumner and Kevin Brosch, USAPEEC’s trade counsel, and Kevin Lovell, president of the South African Poultry Association(SAPA), will be working under a mandate from their respective governments to negotiate a settlement to the long-standing dispute over anti-dumping duties that have effectively blocked U.S. chicken exports to South Africa for the past 15 years.
