Summary and Implications
Commodity markets and trends go hand in hand however there are some trends that repeat themselves weekly due to normal business at the feedyard and the packing plant. The effect of weekly routines was observed in resulting carcass yield grades, quality grade and hot carcass weights. How these results should direct the marketing of cattle is up to the reader, but never the less the results are interesting and may change the value of some animals depending on the day they were processed.
