2022 was a good year for US beef exports
Despite challenges, U.S. beef has sold well in other countries.
That’s the message shared at the Minnesota Cattle Industry Convention by John Hinners, senior vice president, industry relations, with the U.S. Meat Export Federation (USMEF).
“We could be close to a $12 billion export value on U.S. beef when it comes to December this year. That’s exciting,” Hinners said in early December. Official USDA numbers were available through October. “It wouldn’t happen without the financial investments through your checkoff and through the support of national organizations like the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association.”
