Beef General Information

What does a typical distributor order sheet look like?

By Bob Oros

Notice how the pricing will be spread across the various packers.  The reason being is that 95% of their purchasing decision will be based on price.  If they can't buy at competitive prices they simply can't sell it.

The "NR" stands for No Roll, or ungraded and the "SEL" stands for USDA Select.  This particular order sheet does not include USDA Choice which would be abbreviated as "CHO".
