Ag Exports Forecast Looks Ahead to Record Year



(NAFB)--Ag Secretary Tom Vilsack says American farmers and ranchers are on track for another year of record exports - which builds on the past five-years of the strongest agricultural trade in history. USDA released its Outlook for U.S. Agricultural Trade Thursday and projects Fiscal Year 2014 ag exports will reach 149.5-billion dollars - which would be a 6.9-billion dollar increase from previous estimates and a new record for U.S. ag exports. The volume of U.S. ag exports is projected to increase by 31-percent between Fiscal Years 2013 and 2014. Vilsack says USDA will continue to focus its efforts on tapping into new markets for what is grown and made in rural America.
