United States Sheep And Lamb Exports

Lamb and mutton exports from the United States were 6.5 million pounds in 2001 and 7.1 million pounds in 2002. Between January and August 2003, 4.7 million pounds were exported compared to 4.4 million pounds during the same period in 2002.[6] Between 1998 and 2002, 50% of U.S. lamb and mutton exports went to Mexico by value and 41% by volume.

The United States also exports live sheep and lamb, but primarily ewes, to Mexico. In 2001, 284,435 head were exported, 322,706 head in 2002, and 89,706 head by October 2003. In August 2003, U.S. sheep exports to Mexico fell to zero after exporting close to 7,000 head of sheep in July 2003. The Government of Mexico closed its border due to concerns about scrapie requirements for slaughter sheep entering the country. By mid-September the border was reopened for wethers and slaughter ewes, but remained closed for rams.
