Weekly Beef Commentary
Boxed beef cutout values for the trading session were higher on moderate demand and light to moderate offerings. The beef market performance met expectations, as packers continue to work to cover live cattle market costs with a lesser amount of available inventory based on reduced harvest numbers the past couple of weeks. Conversely, buyers have been encouraged to fill supply for immediate needs while the cash market remains modest compared to future cattle prices. Select and Choice chuck and round items were firm this week, however, the biggest overall contributor was again the middle meats. The most notable trend being loin cuts, which typically have an appreciating seasonal trend, although, are historically about a month away from the current trend. Forward negotiated sales this period were moderate, with frozen beef trimmings showing a significant movement, trading steady to fresh trimmings current market values.
