Produce

There are constraints on value-added and processed items. The shortage on labor continues to affect the market. 

Grains

Wheat has been increasing since July, up 75%. Canola oil trends higher.

Dairy

 Natural mozzarella and processed cheese was up due to increasing demand and labor shortages. Egg market is down with large supply and flat demand.

Limited availability depending on grade. Strips, tenders and ribs, are leveling in price 

Pork

Retail demand drove lift in pork butts. Bellies should be close to their peak.
