Sales totaled 14,330 MT last week, moving the four-week average seven percent higher than the previous figure. Sales increases were reported for Japan, up 8,300 MT, followed by Mexico (1,700 MT) and South Korea (1,300 MT). Hong Kong and Canada purchased 1,100 MT and 800 MT respectively.

Beef export shipments increase eight percent, up 874 metric tons to 12,391 MT.
