Meat Market Update | Prices jump, volume still low

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 Choice Cutout jumped over $8 on the Daily Spot Market and over $4 on the Comprehensive or Weekly Average Choice Cutout. Prices were helped by the Labor day production period again this week, but the volume was low in both the daily as well as the weekly trade.
