Meat Market Update | Rib and loin skyrocket as grilling rally continues

Ed Czerwien, USDA Market News reporter in Amarillo, Texas, offers a concise summary of how last week's beef trade impacted the cattle market and beef prices.

Big news again this week was the continued rock and roll time for the grilling season rally. The Choice Rib and Loin primals continue to skyrocket pulling the Choice cutout higher every week. However, this is a normal seasonal event this time of the year and is impacted by weather. Warm weather this year in many areas really helped this seasonal rally get started along with additional help from a lot more out-front sales than last year.
