Where's the Beef?

June 2nd, 2021 at 03:08 am

In my freezer soon.  Today the farmer I am getting my steer from asked if I could get one early, in 2 to 3 weeks as he had a sale fall through for an earlier butcher date.  I said sure and wrote out the check for the $400 deposit and will get it in the mail tomorrow.  We are eating down the chest freezer at a rapid pace and I think we will have plenty of space in that amount of time.  If not, I'll have to can some meat.  I'll be using the plethora of soup bones to make stock to can, which will free up more space.

I was really happy to hear that we can get it early after the cyberattack on the nation's biggest beef manufacturing plant has reduced our capacity by 20%.  This is going to impact the food supply hard.  Not just beef, but likely pork and chicken as people buy more of them to replace their beef intake, causing a greater demand and a higher price because of it.  We'll see if the supply chain can handle it.  If you can afford it stock your freezers, people.  Can if you know how.  Fish and freeze if you are able.  It's going to be a bumpy ride.  It may not hit for a few weeks, but it will hit.  If you've been thinking about buying wholesale off the farm, it is probably time.

    Yeah, it is. They don't inject the meat with anything and you don't have to worry about things like meat glue holding steaks together to make them seem like something they are not. And preservatives other than curing salt on the things like ham or bacon.
