U.S. beef exports to China are on a record pace.
John Hinners with the U.S. Meat Export Federation says the Chinese value a lot of different variety meats.
“If you could see a pie chart for 2021 it would just blow your mind on the amount of product that’s moving into China, and it’s not all the ribeye steaks and New York strips that we like to throw on the grill.”
He tells Brownfield it’s more like belly meat that would traditionally go into the grind here at home.
USDA says from January to May, U.S. beef to China surged 13-fold in both exports and sales compared to a year ago.
