My wife went to the store today and bought some steaks. She was shocked to learn that steaks were almost double what they were a short time back. She asked the butcher the reason for the cost and he stated fuel prices. I guess it's time to start raising some beef cattle.

Fuel prices.... lol! That's a guy with a sense of humor!

The western drought is pushing a LOT of cows into the hamburger market right now, and prices are staying remarkably high. Pairs are selling CHEAP! No water means no feed, and no hay for this winter.

Better hope the South and Midwest get rain, or beef will be VERY dear in the upcoming year or two.

This was at Costco. Can't imagine what beef prices are in the more niche grocery stores.

Finally found a local who knows how to finish off a beef. Won't be buying grocery store beef again.

I just looked over steaks twenty minutes ago for my wifes Birthday dinner. I would guess double what they were recently . Our local grocer is not cheap by big town standards , but price go up faster dur to end of the supply line

We butcher our own hogs and beef. I typically cut our hogs for whole hog sausage and buy my pork steaks. Pork steaks were 4.50 lb yesterday. Fook that. Was still able to get whole loins for 1.79 lb. Smoker is loaded up.

watch the Holiday sales. The stores around here had and have sales around Memorial Day, 4th July, Labor Day sometimes fathers day and new years. those Holidays are spread apart enough to load up a freezer when prime cuts go on sale, and simply vacuum seal it up. I have about 6 whole rib roasts either frozen or aging right now, that will last till Labor day if I miss a 4th of july sale.

LOL.

Yeah, they forgot to double what I get for beef through the sale ring.

In all commodities, the producer always gets the short stick.
