US Lamb Shipments Fall But Value Rises

08 May 2015

US - March lamb meat export from the US showed strong value but was back slightly in volume, according to industry statistics.

A slight drop saw shipments down to 728 mt from a year ago but value lifted to $1.92 million, according to US Meat Export Federation data. 

This is the largest monthly value since November.

First-quarter exports were down 14 per cent in volume (2,271 mt) and 18 per cent in value ($5.36 million) as growth in the Caribbean and Middle East was offset by lower totals for Mexico.
