The U.S. Meat Export Federation is still waiting for the final 2012 numbers, but officials say they expected beef exports totals to surpass $5-billion. And this year may be even better.

Ag officials say exports to locations such as Japan and Hong Kong are expected to increase this year.

South Korea, Japan, and Hong Kong represent the top export markets for California beef.
