Speaking of demand, It’s easy to see a situation where there is an over supply of kosher meat. I wouldn’t be shocked if there are well over 100,000 less portions of beef and poultry being used each night in the absence of weddings, bar mitzvahs, sheva brachos, parlor meetings, organizational dinners, business meetings, eat in dining, etc. etc.

Some of those people will need to eat anyway, and will choose beef but  likely the vast majority of those portions will go unused

If all equal, yes. Reducing production is the way to avoid the excess of supply and keep the equilibrium for a steady price. The demand should shift the supply not the other way.
Bottom line, too many factors to speculate about the price unless someone has inside knowledge.

OK, we have to compare the same grade. I have always been told kosher meat is more expensive.
