Supply and demand are such confusing concepts for doge.

Your dog, it's what's for dinner.

I've got a couple of worthless kids that together must weigh nearly 400 pounds, but it's lean meat. How can I fatten them up so that I don't go hungry in the future?

If you have two kids that weigh a combined 400 lbs., I'd say they're fat enough already.

That's the best part next to the quality.

How long will that last? A half just barely lasts us a year, and that's on top of a whole lamb, 2 or 3 deer, and lots of fresh fish (plus the occasional chicken/pork product from the store). This problem isn't going to be gone a year from now. It's going to be a few years before prices drop again. It does feel good having all of that meat in the freezer though when I go through the meat section at the store and look at the prices. I'm a little nervous about what that half is going to cost me next fall though.

A 3% reduction in total supply is due to drought and equals a 38% cost increase.  Got it.

Don't forget the increased cost of feed grain. That's a lot of the cost increase.

There's more to it than just the drought. Record-high corn prices and relatively low cattle prices brought about a lot of land-use changes around here. It got too expensive to feed beef and corn and soybeans were super-profitable, so people started selling off their cows and ripping up every pasture in sight to plant corn/beans. Herd numbers are way down nationwide, and drought is only part of the reason.

did you not see the "lean meat" part of what I wrote?

/they're solid - used to be chuffy, now they're lean, mean, eating machines.
//tall, muscled, etc.
///mama wants that kind of metabolism that only males seem to have, sigh.

I agree, but no matter what going down the road is less expensive with better quality, so it is what it is. My sons are also getting of age, so more venison is on the way. NTM that a couple guys I let hunt here do share. But yah, a half will last us about nine months after I give a chunk to the food pantry (proteins is the hardest thing for them to come by for obvious reason). Generally I keep portions of meat down to about 4-6 ounces per person and go heavy on the vegetables. So two ribeyes is enough for the four of us- I get them cut thick so I'll get more, but I see three steak meals coming soon.... Obviously the roasts reap rewards with leftovers. We have a garden and some farmer's markets nearby, so generally a steak dinner for us runs about $6. Of course the ground beef is in the equation, so cheeseburgers cost that much too. I'll take it.

*pats the 2 steers out on pasture out back

*pats the 3 hogs diligently eating at the feeder for good measure

*pats the 3 cows who keep us in steers

Our beef will last indefinitely unless I can't come up with a bull or the cows turn lesbo on me.

Whoo-hoo...
40 head of cracker cattle in the pasture. Moms with their little calves, Dad next door sitting in the shade by the pond. Folks lines up to buy our certified grass-fed stock - not for meat, but for breeding.

Ironically, we are not meat eaters. Family food and booze bill for two of us for one week = $80.

At least a year.  But thats just me.

And I get them from family, so I don't have to wait, or be hit as hard with the price increases.  I cover cost increase, processing will pretty much stay the same.
