Demand for variety meat increased the US lamb exports in November

 Lamb muscle cut exports trended lower in November at 232 mt (down 18 percent) valued at $1.46 million (down 3 percent).

For January through November, lamb exports reached 11,758 mt valued at $21.4 million – up 77 percent and 21 percent, respectively, from a year ago.

While most of this increase was due to strong variety meat demand in Mexico, muscle cut exports posted solid gains in the Caribbean, the United Arab Emirates, Taiwan and the Philippines.
