Exports for January - April are a Mixed Bag

Exports of U.S. poultry for the first four months of 2014 reached 1,317,860 metric tons valued at $1.706 billion, down 0.6 and 3.9 percent, respectively, from the same period last year, according to trade data released by the Foreign Agricultural Service recently.

Shipments of broiler meat (excluding chicken paws) for the month of April were down from 2013, falling 6.7 percent to 259,513 tons. Value dropped by 11.4 percent to $324.2 million. The decline is largely because of decreased shipments to Cuba, Iraq, the U.A.E., Saudi Arabia, and Kazakhstan. Transshipments via Lithuania also decreased significantly.
