I have a very good friend in Okla. that is a farmer. That is , he grows a few hundred acres of wheat, alfalfa and then a few thousand acres of cow's. He is currently running close to 700 head of cattle, and plans to buy even more. Since there was a bad draught this year and last year, he decided to not sell any alfalfa and instead , keep it in is barn for his own cattle. Last year , he was one of many that had to sell his cows on the cheap for lack of feed. So I will be able to get all the beef and wheat I need, simply driving over to Okla. But we do know what is happening with the draught.
He has talked in turn to friends of his over in Kansas and another one in Argentina. Kansas, no corn or other feed to be had, and in Argentina, more rain in the last two months then they normally get in a year, resulting in the ground to muddy to plant corn etc in.
Now, add O'Great one into the equation and you have the "perfect disaster" on the horizon
Unfortunatly the beef abundance hasn't allowed us any cheaper prices around here, I don't know why. BUT.....if I'm willing to wait two or three days I'm usually able to snag some reduced managers specials for a good price. Was able to get a three pound flat of pork tenderloin rounds and pork "steak" for $1.80 a pound when they were both originally $11.95 a pound.
At that price it's not economical for us to buy a hog or cow, plus we've nowhere to store it. But you never know what's going to happen. I'm ready to can meat as soon as the prices lower again.
thanks for the heads up! i scored some steaks for 10.99 a lb instead of 16.99 for rib eye! and i scored some chuck roast for thanksgiving day!
