This drop is because "the domestic market has demanded high volumes of meat at stable prices", reported the National Stockbreeder Association.
Upon the closing of 2008, 1,497 million kilograms of fruits, meats, shellfish, clothes and petroleum by-products were exported.
Foreign sales were down by 17.8% in volume and 10.4% in value in February.
At the end of the first quarter, $216 million were exported, 50.2% less than during the same period in 2008.
Sales of beef products fell in both volume and foreign currency earnings.
