It wasn’t a freefall but the wholesale beef market certainly made strides to return to normalcy following the price spike of recent weeks, which was spurred along by short-bought buyers and supply disruptions due to winter weather.

Choice boxed beef cutout value reached a record $240.05/cwt. Jan. 22—it ballooned $40 in less than a month. On Friday, it was $223.39, but still about $23 higher than when the new year began.

Compared to the previous week, feeder cattle and calves sold unevenly steady to $3/cwt. lower, with the full decline in the Northern Plains where prices have been the highest, according to the Agricultural Marketing Service.
