Hi everybody it’s time for your Wednesday Agri-Beef Minute on today’s Land and Livestock Report, here on the Ag Information Network of the West-I’m Russell Nemetz.

U.S. beef exports remained well above last year’s pace in July, posting one of the highest monthly export value totals on record, according to the U.S. Meat Export Federation. July beef exports totaled 104,488 metric tons, up five percent year-over-year, while export value reached $623.7 million, up 18 percent from a year ago and the highest since December 2014.

A U.S. Meat Export Federation trade team visited Japan Sept. 3-8 to meet with buyers of U.S. pork and beef and get a firsthand look at how their support helps grow demand in the leading international market for U.S. red meat. The “USMEF Heartland Team” included Wanda Blair, a cattle producer from Vale, South Dakota, who serves on the USMEF executive committee. In her first visit to Japan, Blair was impressed with the trade seminar USMEF conducted for importers, distributors and other key industry contacts.
