Meat Market Update | Buyers Lock In Holiday Specials; Sales See Boost

Ed Czerwien, USDA Market News reporter in Amarillo, TX, provides us with the latest outlook on boxed beef prices and the weekly cattle trade.

The daily Choice cutout jumped over $3.00 by Friday, but the average for the week was only up $0.28. However, once again the weekly volume was strong at over 7,000 loads.

The big increase came in the out-front sales which jumped about 300 loads, a normal seasonal spike during this week. These out-front sales will not be delivered for at least three weeks which will put them between Thanksgiving and Christmas as buyers locked in their post-Thanksgiving advertisement specials.
