Meat export sales down on week

U.S. meat export sales fell during the week ending September 7th. The USDA says beef exports were nearly half of the previous week and pork was down, as U.S. exports in general continue to see the impacts of heavy global competition and the relative strength in the dollar. Corn and soybean export sales for the first full week of the marketing year were within analysts’ expectations. Old crop soybean meal and oil both saw net reductions as that marketing year draws to a close.
