Dinner's going to cost more

Looks like meat prices are taking a hike ...

From the Peoria Journal-Star:

Just in time for the start of grilling season, the already rising prices of meat are expected to jump even higher because of a shortage of market-ready livestock, local meat suppliers said.

Low meat prices last year are to blame for the current rise, because farmers who lost money raising animals cut down their number of livestock, Barth said.

Beef for the most part, is out of my budget anyway. Unfortunately, the price hike is affecting pork, too. Unfortunately, I suspect chicken will go up due to demand, too. Maybe it's a good think that it's garden time ... those veggies may come in handy.
