Meat Market Update | Beef Prices Jump, But Volume Decreases

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

In this week's boxed beef market, prices jumped higher but volume saw a dramatic drop. However, that is normal (compared to previous years) for the week following the Memorial Day holiday. Retailers tend to stock up ahead of the holiday and then fall back to normal sales volume after.
