Consumers are concerned about what the price of groceries are going to be come this winter, and rightly so. With one of the worst droughts on record happening this year across the nation’s heartland, it’s inevitable that food prices are going to continue on an upward climb. Right now though there are still some fairly attractive prices in the grocery stores, especially when it comes to certain meat cuts. Every time my hubby and I run to the store we check out the meat case, and generally pick up one, if not two or three, affordably priced middle meat cuts, like loin and rib, to stick in the freezer. Unfortunately for pork producers, the disappointing corn harvest and resulting soaring feed prices has forced many of them to liquidate sows at record rates. This has swelled pork supplies and sent pork prices at the grocery store spiraling downward. This means through this fall consumers will more than likely be able to buy cheap pork. Consumers need to stock up as much as they can then, because retail and agricultural analysts are cautioning that by next year, due to the economic strain on farmers of record high feed costs, supplies of pork, beef, and chicken will all be tight.
