Note: Primal yields include trim, fat, skin, bone, shrink. Total yields do not calculate to 100% due to other products derived from carcass (jowl, neckbones, tail, feet, cutting loss). Trim yield is approximate due to various styles of cutting primals.
Prior to April 2013, prices from the voluntary report were used (USDA Weekly National Carlot Meat Report).
*A number of new items have been added to this report, some of which were not available in the voluntary report.
