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.
