The Department of Agriculture reports that the government of Japan has finalized technical requirements that will allow the U.S. to export sheep and goats to that country for the first time in more than 14 years. A USDA press release states that department technical staff have conducted extensive work with Japanese authorities to establish new terms for market access that are science-based and consistent with international public and animal health standards. Japan imported $169 million worth of sheep and goat meat in 2017, the press release notes, primarily from Australia and New Zealand.
