Default Re: What is Happening, part II

We've finally been getting rain but sadly it's too late to save the crops and hay. Feed prices are through the roof and a lot of ranchers are selling off entire herds. A year like this is really hard on the younger families trying to get into farm and ranching. Some of the older ones are in tears watching 20 or more years of work building up herds being auctioned off for less than half their worth. What is really bad is that low price is not being passed along to the consumer so beef and pork prices are high.
