Beef Armageddon! Higher prices and less stock in stores soon

Good Day World!

I’m thinking about giving up meat.

Beef for sure.

At least when it comes to anything more than hamburgers. Steaks are just getting too expensive.

See the link below for more on that.

I remember when I use to shake my head at the price of Lobster (I finally quit eating it).

There’s a lot of good reasons to quit eating beef right now. Health scares around red meat and beef products like "pink slime' - which celebrity chef Jamie Oliver compared to dog food – are a good start. Then there’s the whole butchering process. If you’ve ever witnessed it you understand why some people become vegetarians.

Cattle supply is at an all-time low in the U.S. after nearly three years of drought, which led to more farmers killing off their herds earlier than planned. U.S. beef output will hit a 20-year low of 24.205 billion pounds this year, according to Department of Agriculture forecasts.

Meanwhile, prices are going sky high. I’m on the verge of stopping my chicken consumption too. The latest news about Foster Farms and cockroaches has grossed me out. I’m just waiting for some bad news about pork.

Time for me to walk on down the road…
