The global reach of the US forage export industry connects family farms from the American West Coast to family dairies and ranches in every corner of the globe.
Members of USFEC work closely with overseas customers to understand their needs, then source, store and process the right product at a high level of quality and safety.
Nearly half of US forage is exported to Japan where nearly all varieties of straw and hay are used at dairy and beef farms.
Korea represents about a quarter of all US forage exports, mostly to dairy farms.
The United Arab Emirates is a major market for US forage, especially alfalfa, where quality product is consumed by cows, horses, goats and camels.
China currently sources only alfalfa from the US, and USFEC is working with USDA to open the market for other varieties.
Another 50+ countries around the world enjoy the benefits of safe, high-quality US forage.
