Fresh chicken egg exports increased 2% while fresh bird egg exports fell 51% over the same period. A 36% decline in fresh chicken egg exports to Mexico were offset a 105% increase to Canada.

Chicken hatching egg exports to Canada grew 78%, exports to Mexico were up 10%.

Dried egg yolk exports were higher to Japan (+96%) and Germany (+81%). Liquid/frozen exports rose 9%; increased exports to Canada (+82%) more than made up for declines to Mexico (-30%) and the Netherlands (-38%).
