Price spreads for beef and pork
"Price spreads for beef and pork are the differences among prices at three marketing levels - farm (live animals), wholesale (carcass or wholesale cuts) and retail (average of retail cuts). From those prices, price spreads can be estimated - farm-wholesale, wholesale-retail, and farm-retail. These price spreads are estimates rather than precise measurements. Price spread trends are, therefore, more reliable than a specific spread at one point in time."--First page.
