Meat Market Update | Choice middle meats drop in value

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

The Daily Choice Rib primal has dropped almost $50 in the past two weeks and the Choice loin has followed a similar path. This is part of a normal seasonal decline of the Choice middle meats during this part of the grilling season. However, when combined with plummeting out-front prices for these items, the Choice cutout continues to drop lower.
