Boxed Beef Trade Moves Higher Again But Auction Receipts Begin to Dwindle - Audio Comments with Ed CzerwinMon, 13 Feb 2012 17:00:20 CST
According to Ed Czerwin of the USDA Market News Office in Amarillo, Texas, choice boxed beef ended the week higher again last Friday, over $3.00 from the previous week, at $186.65 cwt. As far as the finished cattle last week, Czerwin says the Texas Panhandle showed a dollar higher trade last week but the rest of the Southern Plains trade was about steady with the previous week. The average weight in the Texas Panhandle jumped about seven pounds to 1,243 pounds which draws us a little closer to last year’s weight at this time. The cow harvest numbers continue as usual but auction numbers continue to dwindle. Czerwin says area auction receipts have slowed down considerably.
