Beef, Veal and Lamb Report


Beef, Veal & Lamb- Beef output last week declined 1.7% and was 2% less than the same week a year ago. Cattle slaughter last week was the smallest for any non-holiday week since early May as lower beef prices have caused beef packers to curb output. Slowed beef production is persisting this week. Beef demand is relatively quiet with choice loin prices falling 25% since their peak this spring to their lowest level in five months. Labor Day holiday demand is expected to bring some support to the beef markets shortly. Last year the choice 0x1 beef strip market increased 7% during the next two weeks.

Dairy Report
Dairy- The CME butter market continues to trend well below year ago levels due to ample U.S. supplies. Typically the butter market moves modestly upward during August. The CME cheese markets are edging higher. The international dairy markets have been historically elevated as of late however they have been impacted by a Chinese ban on various New Zealand whey products. As New Zealand is the largest dairy exporting country there is concern that China and other countries could look to the U.S. for more dairy products influencing prices higher here.

Pork Report
Pork- Pork production last week rose 1.5% and was .6% above a year ago. Pork output should begin to seasonally build later this month and is expected to continue to trend above 2012 levels. The pork markets are generally moving upward due in part to better retail feature activity this month. History suggests that the USDA pork cutout index should peak during the next few weeks. Pork belly prices could top relatively soon as well. Last year belly prices depreciated 8% during the last two weeks of August.

Poultry Report
Poultry- Chicken output for the week ending July 27th was 3.9% larger than the same week
a year ago. 2013 chicken production is now trending 3.2% above the prior year. Lower feed costs for chicken producers should encourage strong chicken output expansion in the coming months. Spot feed costs for chicken producers last week fell to their lowest level in thirteen months. The weekly ARA chicken cutout index has fallen to four week lows. Usually the ARA chicken cutout index appreciates 8% during the next four weeks due in part to Labor Day holiday feature activity and better wing demand for the beginning of the football season. The five year average more for the jumbo cut chicken wing market during the next ten weeks is up 8%.

Produce Report
Produce- The Idaho potato markets continue to trade at some of their highest levels since the summer of 2011. Existing Idaho potato storage supplies are seasonally tight. The chief Idaho potato harvest has gotten underway and potato supplies should begin to improve shortly. Still, relatively elevated Idaho potato markets could persist through the end of the month. Iceberg lettuce supplies remain limited due in part to recent adverse weather. Romaine and leaf lettuce prices are tracking below iceberg which signals that some iceberg lettuce market relief may be pending soon.
