A User’s Guide to USDA’s Pork Carcass Cutout

USDA’s Livestock Mandatory Reporting Program (LMR) provides the U.S. pork industry the market intelligence they need to competitively buy and sell pork.  To help the pork industry navigate LMR and how pork is priced, AMS created three user’s guides that provide insight into understanding the information available through our market reports. 

A User’s Guide to USDA’s Pork Carcass Cutout explains the cutout value of a pork carcass. The cutout value is an estimated value based on the sum of its parts with the intent of reflecting the overall supply and demand situation for wholesale pork cuts.
