Meat Market Update | Cutout sees seasonal increase

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 has increased over $40 since right before Christmas as retailers switched from hams and turkey back to beef which is a normal seasonal event. This increase in price has also happened in previous years in late December and peaked out in mid to late January, then plummeted through February.
