Although 2009 year-end exports of both U.S. pork and beef were down compared to the prior year, U.S. exports equaled or bettered their main international competitors.

U.S. pork exports closed the year with an eight percent jump in volume and six percent in value for the month of December compared to year-ago totals. For the calendar year, pork exports registered the second-highest total in history, but fell nine percent in volume and 11 percent in value behind the record-setting totals of 2008.

However, U.S. pork exports still outpaced the performance of global competitors, which (based on available data) slumped 15 percent in value for the year, led by a 22 percent drop for European Union pork producers.
