US Pork Exporters Must Report Sales Weekly

US Pork Exporters Must Report Sales Weekly

The U.S. Department of Agriculture has begun requiring all exporters of U.S. pork to report weekly export sales to the agency’s Foreign Agricultural Service.

The data will allow the USDA to issue weekly export sales reports to the public, allowing for data on the total volume of pork export sales and shipments to be available within two weeks of the activity, rather than the two month period customary to exports as reported by the U.S. Bureau of the Census.

Exporters will report the quantity, destination and marketing year of all pork export sales totaling one metric ton or greater, including certain changes in previously reported sales.
