U.S. pork exports reached a record high in July, while beef exports were steady according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

July pork exports surged to 233,242 metric tons, a 32% jump above what was a record in 2018. With the value now at $623.3 million, up 34%.

Although U.S. pork products face large tariffs in China, American pork exports to China and Hong Kong contributed a large chunk of the volume.

Beef exports, on the other hand, also went up but by only 1% to 117,842 metric tons.
