Beef exports remain strong, despite U.S. dollar strength

Data for U.S. beef exports are reported in metric tons of product weight by the U.S. Department of Commerce. Quantities are often converted from metric tons to pounds. These quantity data is also often converted from a product-weight basis to a carcass-weight-equivalent (CWE) basis. Data are converted to a CWE basis to allow “apples-to-apples” comparisons to beef production data, which are reported in CWE. Beef exports accounted for 12.2% of total annual production in 2021. The export share was up slightly in 2022.
