food prices to rise

Well I know I said it before, but this will go higher (prolly closer to 8%) when they do start harvesting and find out there isn't as much as they first estimated.

Beef prices also will be higher than anticipated.

Well when you see this firsthand, it is easy to predict.

Re: food prices to rise

This is getting more dire as days pass.
Drought grips more than half of nation - THonline.com: National/World: droughts, atmospheric sciences, meteorology, food and drink, hydrology


Indiana is the hardest hit and they are considered ground zero for disaster. Indiana farmers unload livestock as drought continues The Herald Bulletin


Mississippi River so low, cargo barges run aground - US news - Environment - NBCNews.com


Barges are one of the main carriers of commodities for the midwest. This is gonna be a huge factor for price increases. We've already been told by our supplies on fertilizer that this is taxing the system and expect prices to increase because of this.


I don't mean to paint a gloom and doom picture, but I am just informing all of you who are not aware or don't live near any of these hard hit areas how bad it is and how it affects everyone. Things are bad and I see it here and I hear it from farmers outside my state. All you have to do is go to livestock sale barn and find out.

Cows in the Western states are breaking their feet/legs cause the cracks in the earth are so large.
