2016 agriculture exports are projected at $124 billion, half a billion below the February projection.

The USDA says grain and feed exports are forecast at $277 billion dollars, up half a billion. The rise points to larger wheat and corn volumes as well as higher unit values for corn and sorghum.
Oilseed and its product exports are forecasted at $26.1 billion, up $700 million after high soybean export volumes.
The livestock forecast is at $33.5 billion, down $1.2 billion because of low prices.
Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack says the numbers show the importance of getting big trade deals passed like the Trans-Pacific Partnership.
