Pork exports break records


WATERLOO (KWWL)--Iowa's pork exports have set a record and the number is expected to rise as figures come in.

The state says pork producers exported more than $1 billion worth of pork products in the first 11 months of last year.

An economic development spokesman couldn't say whether the export volume was higher or whether the record is due in part to higher export prices.

The top customer is Japan.
