NY steak shortage Wed, 08/8/07 9:50 AM (permalink)
According to todays NY sun www.nysun.com there appears to be a shortage in prime beef. The article states that only 2.5% of beef produced in the US is considered prime.

The blame is being placed on corn shortages due to alternative fuel.
It's a never ending circle. Dairy products, milk and cheese and so forth have all seen a spike in prices. You think there might be some price gouging going on? I'll have to hedge my position and buy corn futures. Chow Jim

    What's corn trading at, 340 or so? It was recently almost 400. Live cattle futures are near $1.00. Still quite reasonable.

    Let me be blunt; most people don't care about Prime. My guess is the majority of Americans could not distinguish between Choice and Select. This is not meant to be trite; how many millions of Americans dined at the following places today?

    McDonalds
    Burger King
    Wendys
    KFC
    Taco Bell
    Pizza Hut
    Red Lobster
    Olive Garden
    Chipolte

    That's just the short list.

    I think anyone would concede it is a big number every day. Easily more than the number of Americans that bought Prime Beef today.
