Meat Market Update | Choice cutout trends higher; PLUS: Export update

Ed Czerwien, USDA Market News reporter in Amarillo, Texas, offers a concise summary of how last week's beef trade impacted the cattle market and beef prices.

April Box Beef export numbers continue to follow the increase that was progressing during the first quarter and are not inhibited by the higher value of the dollar.
