    the price of ground meat is so high? Is there a fucking cow shortage. Yesterday I saw ground chuck priced at $5.99 a pound. It hasn't been that long ago when I could buy ribeyes for a couple of dollars more. I have google ground beef prices but can't get an answer why

    There is a massive drought going on and there is very little grass to range on.

    At times you can find a sale on Beef Roast, get them to de-bone and grind it up for you at no charge. Make sure the leave some of the fat to help with the %'s.

    Hi Nabor will do this in BTR. Along those lines, we lost the owner Mr. Sam last week.

    BOT: Years ago I raised my own cattle, so I know what I was getting. My cousin owned a meat market.

    A little more on this, you'll see ground round for less than a round steak. They take the older steaks that change in color from the lighting, add a little water and grind it up. What you wouldn't buy in steak form, you bought in ground form.

    Aged beef is another thing most don't know about. Its not about an old cow, its beef that is hung after its slaughtered. I use to hang them an easy three to four weeks after slaughter.
