I went to the store today and saw the price of beef has gone up to $5.50 to $6 per pound now. What is everyone else seeing across the nation?
You in Florida?I quit buying it, last I bought was in March on sale for 59 cents a pound, it was the reduced for quick sale packs. Enough sits on the shelf and rots they'll reduce prices. Chicken's getting worse too, last I even looked at was $4.99, hopefully that shortage is over.
I know there's something up because the farmers over in Lee County can't afford to raise them because prices are sol low at the stockyards.
I agree with you 100% on this being price collusion of meat especially beef. We have a lot of canned tuna fish stored up presently and I am shopping around for lower prices on meat. Likely we are going to look at different meat over beef.It's an engineered crisis. Got rice and beans? They're going up, and supplies will shrink.
Gasoline and beef are the worst from what I have seen on price increases. (Obviously ammo as well but most of that was caused by panic buying.) It is $3.39 per gallon now when I purchase gasoline.Look around. Meat isn't all that's going up. It's why I started buying canned beef and pulled pork a long time ago. I got it on it to stretch the meat supply in anticipation of these circumstances. I would recommend that everyone buy more of it, even now. The prices will only keep increasing.
Try WINCO for the meat. Use freezer paper plus ziplocks, or a vacuum pack if you have it.Gasoline and beef are the worst from what I have seen on price increases. (Obviously ammo as well but most of that was caused by panic buying.) It is $3.39 per gallon now when I purchase gasoline.
My wife said she found a sale on beef of $3 per pound at a store. I am going to try to get 20 to 30 pounds of it if I can find any at that price and just freeze most of it.
Harlan County, KY. I was referring to Lee County VA.You in Florida?
Chicken, according to the owner of a local restaurant has gone up 45% since January.

My guess is you were eating laying hens that quit producing. Tough rubbery meat. Meat chickens are much better.Butchered them, dropped them in the pan. Like chewing rubber bands. The store chickens are hybrids that grow quick, and huge. If they live long enough they can be 25lbs and can't even walk.
Even if the chickens are grown "hormone free" they infuse them with crap to plump them and tenderize them.
