Data Set Description:
“This data set contains monthly and annual data for imports and exports of live cattle, hogs, sheep, and goats, as well as beef and veal, pork, lamb and mutton, chicken meat, turkey meat, and eggs. The tables report physical quantities, not dollar values or unit prices. Data on beef and veal, pork, and lamb and mutton are on a carcass-weight-equivalent basis. Breakdowns by country are included.”
“The data are based on U.S. Department of Commerce, Bureau of the Census data. For beef, lamb, mutton, and pork, ERS converts the quantity data from a product-weight basis to a carcass-weight-equivalent basis.
