US pork exports in January were up sharply from year-ago, as muscle cuts increased 34% by volume while total pork volume, including organ meats, rose 28%. Sales value for both were 43% above same period last year, according to the US Meat Export Federation. Mexico was the largest importer of US pork in terms of volume, followed by Hong Kong/China then Japan. Japan ranked No. 1 in sales value with Mexico second. January's pork exports exceeded nine of the 12 months last year and put 2012 in position to set another record. USDA projects a slight increase. (curt.thacker@dowjones.com)
