Meat Market Update | Sales volume and price suprisingly both dip

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 Comprehensive or Weekly Average Choice Cutout dropped $8.23 lower, but the total volume also dropped. Normally when we see a big drop in prices we get some additional sales, like we had last week, but not this week.
