We might be expected to pay 10% more for pork and beef this spring. Another place I read it could be as much as 20%!

hmmmm....interesting. these animals shouldn't even be eating diets of grain. but are fed this way to "fatten up". yet, the very products used to fatten them up are pushed on us :wacko:

They said as high as a 20% hike on the national last night. I feel bad for the meat farmers. So many of them are selling their farms because they just can't afford it anymore which is also pushing up the meat prices up. First it was chicken, then pork and now beef. Soon we will all be living off tofu :(
