This post has nothing to do with my usual quips about writing, but it has to do with another subject very near and dear to me: Beef.
I grew up in meat loving Argentina, where beef is served with every meal and is cheaper thank chicken. So needless to say, I love a good stake. This love however, may need to be curved for the next year or so, due to the unparalleled drought that the great State of Texas and Oklahoma have been experiencing.
Here's an article, that you might want to check out about the impact that this drought may have on meat prices and availability.
It appears that due to the drought, lost of cattle has been slain because it was hard to keep them fed. This will cause a temporary drop in prices. But Ranchers are saying that they will nave no beef for 2012. If big beef producers from Texas and Oklahoma run out, we will still have the ranchers from other states, but this will increase the price of beef considerably.
If beef goes up, so will other meats like chicken and turkey and pork. Why? Simply because the demand will go up.
So if you like beef, or any meat for that matter, I will be so bold as to suggest you buy some and stick it in your freezer.
You can thank me in 2012!
