Grain and feed exports are forecast at $27.2 billion, down $1.4 billion from the November forecast as strong competition reduces volumes and ampl e global supplies reduce unit values of corn and wheat. Oilseed and product export s are forecast at $25.4 billion, down $900 million from the previous forecast in res ponse to lower soybean and soybean meal export volumes and prices. A strong dollar re lative to weaker currencies in Brazil and Argentina has reduced U.S. competitiveness. Cotton exports are forecast at $3.2 billion, unchanged from November.

Beef is reduced $200 million to $5.4 billion as lower unit values more th an offset higher volumes. Due to weak demand and lower unit values, poultry and products are decreased $400 million to $4.8 billion, while pork is forecast $100 million lower to $4.3 billion. Dairy is reduced $700 million to $4.9 billion as e xporters face weak import demand, low prices, and strong competition from the EU. Hides, skins, and furs are lowered $500 million to $2.0 billion on depressed unit values.
