Kentucky Farm Bureau News - July 2013

As the summer grilling season hears up, beef supplies are down, meaning it likely will cost more to host that backyard party. The number of beef cattle in the United States is reportedly the lowest number since the early 1960s. When numbers go down and feed prices go up, consumers end up paying more at the grocery store.

"In the interest of telling the whole story, productivity has also increased since that time," said University of Kentucky College of Agriculture economist Kenny Burdine. "But, the combination of fewer cattle over the past several years and generally strong export markets has left beef supplies relatively tight."
