The USDA’s 2024 pork, broiler, and turkey production estimates were up on the month, while beef and eggs were down.

Beef production is seen at 26.59 billion pounds, 5 million less than May on higher dressed weights canceling out an expected lower slaughter, with an average steer price of $184.01 per hundredweight, up $.50, and no changes to imports, exports, or consumption.

Pork is pegged at 28.104 billion pounds, 40 million higher on a faster slaughter pace and heavier dressed weights, with an average barrow and gilt price of $61.24 per hundredweight, down $1.25, and larger imports and exports against lower consumption.
