Livestock Export Sales Mixed.


Beef export net sales were 23,000, and that is a good number.  South Korea was biggest buyer with Japan following  China only took 600MT and cancelled 1100MT.  In 2021 China was a big buyer of US beef even before they halted purchases of beef from Brazil from September through December. They were also buying more beef from Russia. China need beef to fill surge in new storage.
