Beef producers struggling amid COVID-19

The demand for beef has risen immensely since the coronavirus pandemic started, even with this surge in demand, beef market prices are dropping and many ranchers and producers are feeling the hit financially.

It is unclear how much the pandemic will affect the beef industry, but producers are set for some assistance through the relief package signed by President Trump.
