Even with all of the uncertainty around trade, meat exports for 2018 are expected to be on a record pace. The U.S. Meat Export Federation only has data through October of last year. It's expecting to update those numbers soon, but even before the partial government shutdown slowed the information from USDA, 2018 trends were strong. AgDay's Clinton Griffiths talked with Will Sawyer of CoBank at the 2019 Cattle Industry Convention and NCBA Trade Show.  See a portion of that interview below.
