Re: "People are scared", if you're not .....

Wasn't suggesting that we're going to starve- just that the great luxury of a wide variety of fresh fruits and veggies that we enjoy may get scrambled up a bit for a while.

And a lot of producers and others in that chain will get hurt badly.

I'm hard pressed to see how meat consumption is increasing although it is impossible to predict how and when the stuff in freezers starts to trickle back out and weigh on future demand. More than likely a higher percentage will get lost to waste, though. A lot of the basic skills for keeping stuff are lost.

Wholesale egg prices popped big time- probably the same there although you don't tend to freeze eggs* so there's a higher degree of perishability. If that's a word.

*You can crack them into a blender and freeze them but not many people will. I shoulda done that when a dozen large were .40 at Aldi. Oh well, not high on the list of mistakes I've made.

Not scared...prepared

Town butcher said business has never been better, but that he has to constantly call all his suppliers to find enough meat to fill his cases.

Re: Ironic, huh?

Make up your mind rick,  is Trump a fool or a genius?  I hope the virus works on the populus hard enough to raise the intellect enough to learn to find and vote for qualified candidates.  16 amazing candidates turned into a bad saturday night live skit.

On  all american propaganda networks, I hear they say he is a fool.... But drive down streets in any major city and see the respect he is getting from the voting public.  Be honest would you rather have joe??? Or The clinton foundation controlling virus research?  Or carpet bagging China trade deals again.

 Fauci and the rest of us snicker at his promises and comments, but every one is listening because they know he is facing redicule because he cares, for his country first..    ..... and after 16 hopefull candidates 5 months back we are down to digging out the geriatric relics who need a mental walker to complete a sentence......even in the sewer that is the house of reprobates.  Graphic cartoonists can't generate better congressional criminals, every one of which bought their seats with borrowed money from the political bookies--none of which can vote or speak without the thugs approval and approval of those same major media networks.

I'm watching the info from the WH.  It is our only chance at getting current information without the media tie dye job.

And Fauci's snicker when trump promised too much...... I noticed he moved out from behind trump to be out of the camera next session, but Pence moved him back.  The press cannot control them and they are just what we need right now.  Someone the voters chose and  a president that will take care of the voters first....  You can see it in the streets.

Trump has been right and honest on China trade all along...... But if your so into the destruction of America you won't see it.  Even after the virus issue...... Being a world of jet setters and  Island hopping porn stars.. has its problems....

Virus is just the icing on the cake you can't ignore.  But Trumps success comes largely from being right in the first place.

Our democratic party has been planting land mines for a long time.......

Re: Ironic, huh?

I saw a terrifying poll that indicated that 90% of Republicans find the President the most credible source on the cV.

Which would mean that about 25% of the populace is clinically insane.

for years I have cultivated a fairly good size customer base for freezer beef. I take my culls to three different processors and have it all ground up into burger. My phone has been ringing off the hook from said customer base and the processors.  In the last two weeks I have taken in 30 cows......... all sold before I took them in.  I won't have another set of mine to take in for a month or so. Soooooo, in the last week I went and bought 20 culls (@65cwt ave.) at the salebarn and they will go in next week........ burger is sold and spoken for.....  Yesterday I bought 12 more culls at the salebarn (@71cwt ave.) . Turn them the week of 4/13...........

To my point.

Some of those folks may even remain in hoarding mode and continue buying and keep the stuff in the freezer in reserve. 

Some of it may even get freezer burned and get thrown out in a year or two.

But most of it going to come out of the freezer over time and weigh on demand then.

BTW, in 2008-9 it was a great time to buy whole filets and strips.  The middle cuts and ground beef didn't come down in price near as much as the top stuff. I'd think that will be super true this time since the restaurant trade is the major driver on that end.
