Well, this is some weapons-grade bulls**t right here... at least the high beef prices are forcing me to eat healthier on a regular basis!

Meh. The price for my local grass fed stuff hasn't changed much in a few years. It's always been farking expensive though.

This was predicted since last year's drought.  There just wasn't enough feed grown to sustain the animals, and farmers were forced to sell off large amounts of their herd.   Now beef is expensive.

We were warned, people!  But we didn't listen!  The end is near!

I buy a 1/2 cow at a time, so i'm getting a kick out of this....

seriously. 2.99/lb for 187lbs of everything you could want.
/make sure you have a big freezer though...

I'm in Central Texas, and the drought was horrible. Even the roots of the grass here were dried up. and the deer and other wildlife were emaciated. Then we had wildfires all over the place that burned up a lot of acreage that animals depend on for food. I'm not surprised the price of beef went up. It's a logical result of ranchers having to buy grass (the big round hay bales were going for $200 each, and one of those will feed a handful of cattle for a day) but it's even outrageous here where we grow steak.

We've had a relatively rainy spring, though. Hopefully summer won't be all droughty again. Because steak, that's why.
