Where's the beef?

“Where’s the beef?” may become “Where’s the chicken?” in 2012.

According to two articles recently released, a drop in poultry production is expected for 2012. Greater global demand is leading to rising feed costs which can be directly connected to the rising cost of raising meat and poultry.

How might this affect our area? Poultry growers should expect fewer flocks and consumers might experience a higher cost of chicken in the grocery store. This won’t be the first time poultry has been through this. And as hard as it is to say, in the long run this is a good thing and it needs to happen.

All things will balance out and prices will return to normal, but it may be 2013.
