“New Cuts”

  • The majority of U.S. production of these new cuts will not be used for Japan

  • However, they do provide opportunities to enhance value on underutilized cuts and expand supplies for Japan

  • What about prices?

The question to ask yourself is: “What will short plates, tongues, etc, be worth when the market opens?”


Shoulder clod, Ball tip, knuckle



What about demand
What About Demand?

  • 3rd Quarter 2005 Survey

    • Diet and price are most common reasons for eating less beef

    • Significantly fewer referring to BSE as cause for eating less beef

USMEF, Ipsos

Demand points to consider
Demand Points to Consider

  • Similar results in 2001 survey

  • 26% of 122* million= 31.7 million consumers

  • Foodservice beef is not labeled country of origin; US beef is used widely in foodservice

  • Australian beef has been high-priced

  • Domestic beef remains very high-priced

  • Retail sales will likely be most difficult to recover

  • Two years of negative press about US beef

    USMEF Estimate: 4-5 years to recover to 2003 levels

* 127 million total population in 2005, 4% vegetarian


  • Japan is hugely significant to the industry

  • Traditionally, the U.S. has sent a few cuts from a lot of cattle, to Japan; supply of these cuts will be severely limited

  • Demand for some segments will recover quickly, overall demand will take years to recover

  • “New” cuts provide an opportunity to enhance supplies and profits
