Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack and USDA’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) announced recent efforts to expand exports of US cattle, poultry products and pears by over $85 million annually. Opening export markets in Belarus, Kazakhstan and Russia to US day-old chicks and hatching eggs is expected to increase exports by $25 million per year, while dairy cattle exports to Iraq could bring in more than $60 million. APHIS will work with producers to ensure that exports meet all requisite foreign standards.
