July U.S. dairy cattle exports continue strong pace

July U.S. female dairy cattle exports topped 8,000 head for a second consecutive month, adding up to what is likely the highest two-month total in history, according to USDA’s Foreign Ag Service. At 8,396 head, July exports bring the 2013 total to 37,971, surging well ahead of the 30,285 total for January-July 2012. Record-setting 2011 still holds the top spot, with 42,131 female dairy cattle exports during the first seven months of the year.
Turkey was the top destination for U.S. replacements during July, at 3,554 head. Russia imported 3,059 head, and Mexico remains the 2013 leader, with 1,382 head bringing its January-July total to 13,103.
