The American Farm Bureau Federation’s Market Intel series has examined the impact that COVID-19 has had on livestock, beef and pork markets through the course of the pandemic. Food production was significantly disrupted, especially at livestock-processing facilities. Labor shortages and worker-protection measures slowed throughput at plants across the country and even caused some facilities to temporarily close. As a result there was a sharp increase in the wholesale value of beef and pork that coincided with a rapid decline in the value of live animals. That created a record “live-to-cutout spread,” which is the difference between the price that’s paid for the live animal and the wholesale price of the processed animal product.
