My provider of cut NY 10z steaks told me a few weeks ago that their price raised $4.00 per pound. I promptly stopped delivery and found cut NY's at 10z for an appropriate price. No biggie; these things happen. 3 weeks later (a few days ago) my GM alerts me to some beef pricing crisis that is in the news. Anyone following this? Is this a thing? Or is it just a thing? (Yes, I meant to say it like that). Anyone seen a huge increase in beef prices or expect to see it? Should we all cower in fear about the future state of beef prices?! http://money.cnn.com/2011/03/31/markets/beef_price_increasing/index.htm Or is this just reactionary journalism, desperately seeking attention?
