Drop in U.S COVID cases could spur more beef and pork demand

COVID-19 cases around the world are dropping. At the same time, demand for beef and pork could see an increase.

Analysts think the recovery could spur a trend in consumers who look to return to a sense of normalcy. One ag marketing group says that after was pass the one-year anniversary of the pandemic, people might venture to restaurants, helping domestic demand.

Arlan Suderman thinks the same concept applies to pork.

He says that families have enjoyed cooking higher cuts of protein at home. As more aid is distributed, and people return to dining out, they may make the same choices at restaurants.
