Choice Boxed Beef prices lost .90 while the finish cattle trade was about steady for week ending  August 24, 2012 - Audio with Ed Czerwien, USDA Market News Office, Amarillo, Texas


   
In this week's beef report with Ed Czerwien, USDA Market News Office in Amarillo, Texas, we saw the choice cut market end the week of August 24, 2012, lose about .90 last Friday after being steady for most of the week. Choice ended the week at $192.14 cwt but a low volume count of 820 loads. That was the second week in a row the choice cut volume has been very low. The total boxed beef volume for choice, select, trims and grinds was 7,130 loads.


The general trend in the finished cattle trade was call unevenly steady with some firmness noted in some areas. Live sales in the South went for $120.00 to $121.00 cwt. The dressed trade, however, was $2.00 to $3.00 lower last week at $187.00 to $188.00 cwt.


The harvest weights last week from the Texas Panhandle was 1,263 pounds which was six pounds lower than the previous week.
