USDA Market News - IMPORT BEEF TRADE Thursday, Oct 30, 2003
(Australia and New Zealand) - Compared to Friday, import boneless beef prices were higher on active trading early in the week. This upward movement was fuelled by very light supplies and extremely limited offerings from overseas. Plus, demand was good early as buyers were trying to finish up business before the industry meeting later in the week. Which will cause many trade participates to be out of the market late week.
