Beef Consumption in USA hits record low!

WASHINGTON:  Beef consumption in the USA has hit the lowest level since consumption records began in 1958.  Beef consumption fell by 1.4 pounds in 2010 to 59.7 pounds per capita.  Pork consumption fell even more at 2.2 pounds to a per capita consumptions of 48 pounds.  The fall in per capita meat consumption reflects the decline in the available domestic supply due to falling animal numbers and growing export sales.  Chicken consumption rose in 2010 in large due to slowing export sales.
