Based on individual packer's quality, cutability, and weight buying

programs. Values reflect adjustments to base prices, dollars per cwt.,

on a carcass basis.



* If yield grades are not available, yield differentials may be based on

fat at 12th rib using a constant of average ribeye area and muscling for

carcass weight and KPH. Superior or inferior muscling may adjust lean

yield.
