While Saudi Arabia did recently lift its 30-month cattle age restriction on U.S. beef, the U.S. Meat Export Federation (USMEF) notes other product restrictions do remain in place. Joe Schuele has the story.

According to USMEF, U.S. exports to Saudi Arabia in 2019 totaled $14.3 million. Through April of this year, exports were substantially below the 2019 pace at just $3.3 million.
