Lamb Exports Show Growth in 2018
September 14, 2018
American lamb exports continue to rebound from last year’s low totals as July volume jumped 104 percent from a year ago to 1,209 metric tons and value increased by 46 percent to $2.17 million.
Through July, lamb exports increased 54 percent in volume (6,680 metric tons) and 21 percent in value ($13.44 million). While much of this growth is attributable to stronger lamb variety meat demand in Mexico, muscle cut exports trended higher to the Caribbean, the United Arab Emirates, the ASEAN region and Taiwan.
