MRJ...How much, if any, chicken is imported into the USA, and from which countries?

We do not import chicken. We are a major exporter of chicken. We export approximately 17% of our annual chicken production. If you examine per captia chicken consumption by country you can see why we export and they import. Agman

Agman, I just read this and it said we already import chickens from Canada and will from Mexico. Not that I am a big chicken fan or anything, but was just wondering. Thanks for any reply.

"Mexico expects to start exporting chicken meat to the U.S. sometime in the next few months, making it one of the few countries to penetrate the world's biggest poultry market, according to a Dow Jones story released yesterday.
The only other country that exports chicken to the U.S., where consumers chew up 25.6 billion pounds of the meat each year, is Canada.

Canada's exports to the U.S., though, are limited because its production costs are higher.

The two largest U.S. poultry producers, Tyson Foods Inc. and Pilgrim's Pride Corp., already have processing plants in Mexico, and industry officials say they would welcome the imports."

If I remember right from that old argument a year ago- We figured it out they were ducks and geese and down products.....

Latest USDA data shows no imports of broilers. I believe OT is correct-it is ducks, geese and fighting roosters!

Tam, what do you think of no imports of chickens? Do you have a link to where you got your info? Haven't heard anything from you since you said I was wrong.

If you look back to the post where I corrected you, you should see we were talking about POULTRY not chicken

Also, someone in the know, why is poultry exempt?? If COOL is such a necessity why is the most popular meat product not included??


Maybe I would say because it all is USA chicken!


Sorry Rancher but according to the USDA import records, the US imported $134,839,000.00 worth of Poultry fresh and frozen in 2004 , of which $123,285,000.00 came from Canada an the rest from 15 other countries. They also imported $37,931,000.00 worth of live poultry, of which $35,901,000 came for Canada. So not all poultry eaten in the US is US.
Chicken is not the only poultry. You were the one stateing Chicken, when the question was why is POULTRY EXEMPT? I just told you how much Poultry was imported. Nowhere in the quoted question or my answer was chicken stated.
