Abstract

Though the last forty years of data showed that the U.S. chicken export growth was still positive, but it has slowed in more recent years. Other countries such as Brazil, the U.S. main competitor in the global chicken trade was able to expand its market shares in recent years. Simulation results showed that the United States will play important roles in future global chicken trade provided that the U.S. firms are willing to accommodate the non-tariff trade barriers imposed by major importing countries and broiler industry in the U.S. is able to prevent AI disease outbreaks.
