After two extremely slow months, exports of U.S. female dairy cattle replacements rebounded a little in October, according to trade figures released by USDA’s Foreign Ag Service.

After a two-month layoff, Turkey reentered the market, taking more than half (680) of the total 1,195 head exported during the month. Mexico was the second-leading market, at 371 head, with Canada third, at 144. The October total was the highest since July, and brings the year-to-date total to 14,597, still the lowest 10-month total since 2009.

October exports were valued at $3.55 million, bringing the year-to-date total to $36.94 million.

November's export total will be supported by a 1,400-head shipment to Vietnam.
