Pork Starting on Positive Note



The year is starting out on a positive note. Pork prices compared to a week ago saw the CME Pork Index gained $1.43.  The spread  between the CME Lean Hog Index and the CME Pork Cutout Index was at $18.05 giving packers the incentive to push a few more hogs across the line.  Kill for the week is also starting out larger than it did a year ago.

Certainly the falling beef prices indicate less demand with larger loads of beef in the daily market at lower prices.
