Summer BBQ Meat ??? Dont fret.

As of 2018 Data
The US. Had 2.5 Billion #s of Meat in Storage.

Cheese and other Ag products Also.

Live on the hoof meat in the US is plentiful.

Getting it processed is the issue right now.

We happened across a sale early this year and bought a whole NY strip loin and several pork tenderloins. Two of my favorite grilling meats !

Still have 3 or 4 large, half chicken breasts, some turkey breast (also great grilled), and adequate supply of ground beef.

Yes O.B.
There are Two numbers to track.
The usda reports a monthly supply of meat, milk and eggs in the fresh supply. Or 30 day frozen supply. These # s are lower temporarily

Then the annual Government Reserve's
Frozen beef, cheese etc ( Reserves.)
Reported annually
Its interesting to study whom is the largest producer of beef in the world.
And how much , cheap beef we Import .while exporting High quality beef.
For various reasons.

As of this week
China wants to make a large BUY of our grain and meat
There is the free market and then the trade agreement tonnage to track also.

And in the past 30 to 60 days the price the ranchers are pd on hoof has gone down substantially.
Many cant find brokers to buy the beef, pork, checkens.
They are being slatered and buried.

A Very sad situation.

Also sad is this latest government subsidy, which is only paying ranchers who sold their beef cattle between January 1st and April 1st, and nothing for families like mine that held onto the cattle in hopes that the market would recover. As the government payout is based on a fraction of the dollars the cattle were sold for, and zero times anything is still zero.

That covered 90 days
Maybe you wont need the assistance a month from now ???
By July first, if you do ?
You may get it.
Hopefully you wont need assistance.
Everytime the government gets involved in a somewhat free market system.
We all pay eventually.
And thats why China gets our best quality meat at a low ball price .
And the American citizen cant afford the cost here. Of the Quality meat.
All because of Trade agreements made long ago.

The son in law and I have been shopping for a steer. He located one near his place in Tx several days ago for $.90 a lb on the hoof. It had been a show steer and was a couple yrs or better old. It weighed in around 2,000 lbs.
It's at the butcher shop hanging in the cooler aging right now.
We will eat steak for a while and will have plenty of burger.

Use local Farmers only and have for years. No shortages or pricey meats. Average $3.75 lb hanging weight, cut and wrapped the way I want it @ 1/4 Cow.

We get chickens and pork products this way also.
