Poultry market reporter Terrence Walls looks at how cutting stock walk values are falling. Over the last month, chicken industry observers have paid close attention to the split between the top half and bottom half of the bird, while the top half continues to trend higher. The bottom half has yet to settle out. However, it's not just the dark meat complex that is under pressure right now. Values for whole birds and wogs are also falling, and they're doing so without any grace. After quickly climbing 12 cents per pound between late December and early January, log values hit their peak and then almost immediately began to drop an alarming rate. Now a lackluster demand coming from the industry's fast food buyers has left sellers stranded with a heavier than normal carryover of supply. Another factor that hasn't come up too often and conversation, but it's definitely worth a mention is the impact that dark meat complex has had on whole birds and walks. According to sources, Some processors have shifted their lines over to produce more logs so that they can avoid having to sell dark meat parts at a time when true market value is tough to establish. As a result, asked and pay prices continue to drop with no real end in sight. Thanks, Terrence. That concludes today's show. Thanks for watching and have a great day.
