Adoption of established cow-calf management practices can improve production efficiency and thus reduce the environmental impact of beef production, according to results of a study recently published in the Journal of Animal Science.
Choice boxed beef slipped on from Monday to Tuesday from $233.66 to $233.18. The 48-cent drop brought the 27-day average price to $239.03. Select boxed beef fell hard as well, dropping $1.16 to hit $227.95. The 27-day average price is now at $235.56.
Choice primal chuck saw the largest fall of the primal cuts, dropping $2.59 to hit $193.09. Choice primal round was close behind, falling $1.86. Choice primal loin increased $2.18 on Tuesday to hit $310.72.
U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said on Tuesday "good progress" was made toward a 12-nation Trans-Pacific trade deal last week, even though negotiators failed to reach an accord in marathon talks in Hawaii.
