US broiler and turkey exports up
Exports of chicken and turkey increased during
July compared to the same period during 2005, according to the US Department of
Agriculture's Economic Research Service.
The primary reason for the increase in US shipments was broiler demand
growth in markets such as Russia and other members of the Commonwealth of
(CIS). Shipments to the CIS, excluding Russia, expanded
in July after falling considerably in March and May. The CI.S imports of US broiler meat
grew from 10.4 million kg in July 2005 to 22.2
million kg in July 2006â€”a 114% increase. Shipments to Russia, the largest US
broiler market, have been volatile from month to month, but strong
July turkey export shipments to Taiwan increased by 73% while
shipments to Russia increased by 211% from July 2005.
