Meat Market Update | Exports, out-front sales encourage market volume

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 Box Beef Cutout has enjoyed strong rallies early in the week as retailers reordered immediately following the weekend with continued support from the Rib and Loin, but prices have dwindled later in the week. The total volume of sales was much better and supported by big increases in exports and out-front sales.
