Colorado meat exports up

Colorado's agricultural exports increased for the first nine months of 2010 by $169 million or 27.7 percent over the same period last year.  Meat represented $86 million of the increase and hide exports increased 86 percent for an additional $65 million in exports.

Colorado's agricultural exports are significantly higher than the U.S. average and grew 15 percent for the first nine months of 2010.

"Increased exports are critical for Colorado's agricultural industry, and it is encouraging to see our exports increase in all sectors," said Commissioner of Agriculture, John Stulp. "We are particularly pleased to see a growing acceptance and desire for our meat products in Asia and Russia which are Colorado's most significant growth markets."
