Meat Market Update | Outstanding Sales Volume Boost Boxed Beef Market

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

Sales volume this week was really outstanding when it's adjusted for the previous out-front sales which could have easily added roughly 500-800 loads of product that were being shipped each week lately.
 
Those out-front sales that occurred about a month ago were the largest that we saw in a long time and between 1600-1700 loads per week for three weeks in a row which should be being delivered now.
