Halstrom will also touch on a key statistic from 2012 – beef export value per head of fed slaughter. While last year’s beef export volume was lower than in 2011, per-head export value reached new heights – nearly $217 for the year and a monthly record of $246 in December. Total beef export value also set a new annual record of $5.51 billion.
