Meat Market Update | Volume and prices up

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

We have been in the Father's Day shipping period since retailers were getting product to distribute for this big grilling holiday.  We have a good increase in volume along with the increase in prices, which really shows how good the demand has been.

Ribeye steaks continue to be a big item for Father's day.
