Export Success Begins at Farm Level: Important Facts to Know

International markets around the world continue to provide a valuable outlet for U.S. Pork and pork products. For this reason, the federal government, along with the U.S. Meat Export Federation, National Pork Producers Council, the American Pork Export Trading Company and others, work to ensure export customers get a continuous supply of high-quality, safe pork.

The export chain, however, begins at the farm level—meaning every American producer plays an important role in producing this safe, nutritious, high-quality pork for the world’s growing population.

As part of the ongoing example of how U.S. producers show they care for their animals and the food they produce, they work with their veterinarians to follow the key guidelines associated with the proper use of animal health products.

This close working relationship, typically cited at the Veterinary-Client-Patient Relationship (VCPR) is critical to the ongoing success of U.S. pork exports. This is especially true as international markets evolve over time and may result in trading partners making changes in their requirements of purchasing U.S. Pork. Often, these changes are related to residue levels in meat or meat products, typically called Maximum Residue Levels (MRLs).

The American Association of Swine Veterinarians offers its overview of why it’s important to ensure producers take steps to meet all MRLs of antimicrobials related to pork exports.
