This article constitutes a trial of the use of scanner data to investigate the demand for fresh beef products (brisket, chuck, ground, loin, rib, round, and all other beef). Own‐price elasticities are negative, statistically significant, and in the elastic range. Own‐advertisement elasticities are positive and statistically significant but very inelastic. Cross‐price effects and cross‐advertisement effects are marginal. Seasonality is evident only for purchases of loin and all other beef. This article documents the utility of scanner data in food demand analysis.
