A Nice Increase in Choice Boxed Beef Prices and Finished Cattle Prices Were Steady Last Week - Audio with Ed Czerwien, USDA Market News Office, Amarillo, Texas


   
In this week's beef report, according to Ed Czerwien, USDA Market News Office in Amarillo, Texas, said we saw the choice cut market end the week April 20, 2012 at $188.01 cwt, a ten dollar increase from the previous Friday. That price was supported by a fifty percent increase in the trimmings. However, the spot volume was down.
As far as the finished cattle trade last week, the trend was generally steady with the previous week. Business in the Southern Plains was mostly $121 to $122 cwt mark.

The average live weight of the cattle harvest from the Texas Panhandle was 1,227 pounds, up 3 pounds from the previous week.
