U.S. beef consumers have spoken – top-end cuts remain the preference. Branded (upper 2/3 Choice) and Prime products have been supported by unprecedented demand lately. It is important to note that Prime wholesale prices have skyrocketed during the last six months ($85/cwt). Current prices easily surpass the previous peak seen in March 2012 – and on a larger volume. As a whole, the beef industry is enjoying higher prices with bigger volume.
