    Beef Prices

    Here's an article from Saturday's newspaper about beef prices. No good news for consumers but it does give some insight:

    You have to be a subscriber to read it, but it appears to confirm what others have said on here. Droughts over the past several years had caused corn prices to rise which caused beef prices to rise. At least this indicates that a correction should be coming eventually.

      People are still getting over $1,000/calf at the sale barn around here. No way things can go down anytime soon, even with bumper crops this fall.

        Sorry about the link, I thought I had the subscription thing bypassed.

        Article says they are getting $3.50/lb for calves or $2650/pair versus the $1.50/950 they were getting in 2010.

          And then if people rebuild, they will just keep heifers, which means less beef headed to the feedlot.

              Good score Paul! I'd take it too if it were $3/lb, Choice or not. That's a good deal for hamburger where I live for Pete's sake..

                At least you can get brisket. Grocer here doesn't even stock it any more. Hopefully this is temporary.

                  The big grocery chain here, Giant, is now selling primarily meat that just says "USDA Graded" - doesn't even say Select.

                    Good grades get bragged on. All others, inspect yourself
