Weekly Pork Commentary
Movement of retail pork cuts was slow this week as many buyers concentrated on traditional proteins for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday. With this, prices for loins and butts fell slightly as supplies were more than adequate for the light demand. Heavy hams continue to be plentiful while interest remained limited throughout the week as price levels depreciated slightly. Lighter weight hams were steady most of the session although light offerings caused prices to firm late. Seedless belly trades were almost non-existent with only a few trades trading at steady price levels. Lean trimming began the week with ample offerings. However by mid-week these had cleared the market while increased interest caused price levels to appreciate. Sausage manufacturers attempted to procure fresh trim to get covered for the shortened upcoming holiday week.
