A couple weeks ago a decent prime brisket of medium weight
was about 45 or 50 bucks.

Went to get the Memorial day brisket at Sams yesterday and those briskets are 90 bucks.

I made like a negro democrat and just walked away.


Did beef prices expand significantly where ur at?

The price of everything has gone up.
You have to take out a second mortgage on your house to buy a fucking bottle of hand sanitizer.

Considering all the issues at the meat processing plants, that brisket was probably infected with COVID-19 anyway, so you're better off without it.

Only two weeks ago or so it was almost half of what it is now.
I didn't know if that was everywhere or just around here.

No change at the meat market here in FL, but it's all locally sourced.. the panic buyers must only be squeezing the grocery store supply chain

I can wait a week or two. Maybe price will drop.

No, it's all over.
The food processing plants are hot spots.
Many workers are sick.

I know about the packing plants etc but there is no shortage of 90 dollar briskets
as of yesterday. Seemed like plenty of other meats were available compared with
a month or so ago before it went way up.

I paid $ 6,26 for a # of ground beef, $4.49 for small pack of bologna, and $ 6.49 for a small pack of cheese! Outrageous!

No I shop only at safeway as they are well stocked as they have their own warehouses and supply chain!

It's hard to find meat or chicken here in PA.

I don't really have an answer for why it seems to be regional. It seems that Wally has higher beef prices than regular grocers like Rouses, Publix, and Winn Dixie. Publix is 3.49 @ lb for ground chuck and 9 bucks for bone-in choice ribeye. Pork and chicken seem to be about the same from before WuWu.

The premium cuts (rib eye/filet mignon) went up by 30%, the lower quality cuts went up almost double.

Interestingly enough, restaurants that serve beef dishes didn't increase their prices nearly as much or even at all - either the price increase only applies to retail and not wholesale, or restaurants are desperate for customers (probably the latter).

It's not the panic buying. It's the fact that workers were propagandized by the deep state/globalists so they're "afraid" of catching Covid-19.

There was a recent outbreak where over ~700 food processing workers tested positive for Covid-19...but the VAST MAJORITY of them didn't even show symptoms.

I daresay this is an orchestrated attack on the food supply.

Listen trailer park Tom, you're the one bitching about the price of meat. I have no worries about such things. DFAS and the VA pays me about 5K per month just to stay alive. Most of it is tax free.

You can always get a job at Walmart and be one of those front door "greeters". You might even get a discount a Sam's club.
