Pre-scare ribeye steak was $11.99/lb here, now it's $5.98/lb.  I've had steak every other night for the past week.

Arizonans are too sophisticated to fall for the hype.  We insist on paying full retail for our meat!

Sucks for the cattle industry, though. The prices here haven't fluctuated yet. They didn't go up due to the "Atkins" trend recently and they haven't gone down from the Mad Cow BS. Looks like a wash here. Going grocery shopping tomorrow and the freezer is empty is beef is cheap [:D]

Went out to dinner last night and the restaurant had rib eye for the nightly special.  It was delicious.  That mad cow disease gives the beef a really nice flavor.

Don't say that!  My girlfriend will hear you!!!

Had London Broil tonight.

Unfortunately, her ex-husband (who is a good guy, and a friend) raises Limousine cattle and he is going to lose his shirt if this stuff keeps up.

BUY BEEF!

Kpel308, the markets on live and feeder cattle were up about a dollar today. Seems the mad cow scare may not have been as bad as expected. But it's early yet, still could go south...EAT BEEF.. fullclip

Prices at Sam's, Wal-Mart, Safeway, Albertsons, King Soopers and K-Mart remained the same today as 2 weeks ago.

They are taking advantage of the customers.  They are paying far less now then what they are charging.

I got a slab of nystrip for 3.60lb 2 weeks ago.
Saw Ribeye slabs for 3.87lb today.

And price are expected to drop next week. [banana]

Nice Beerslayer,

I'm told anything black is what sells the best on the hoof in Navasota and Huntville texas auctions.

US cattle price futures raises 3 cents a pound today, just heard it on fox..

HUH????  The USDA Texas/Oklahoma weighted Steer average was off about $16 per hundred weight from a week ago. ($200.00 per head)  Cattle feeders are at about break even today.

I like the black cows also. They are more TACTICAL than the others.

I hate cows, they are so damn stupid.


But i love beef.
Link Posted: 1/2/2004 7:45:37 PM EDT
The local Albertsons had to pull all of the processed frozen hamburger meat off the shelves because it came from the same plant at the same time as the mad cow.

Just to be sure they pulled all of the beef out of the store and restocked it with some organic stuff at almost twice the price.

True. but remember, the price iJan 2002 was around $67.00 and the Jan 2003 price was around $73.00. Todays was about $74.50. Still up from last year and starting to climb.

currently sales are slow because of the time of year. Cattle are still on grass and wheat getting ready for feedlots. Couple of more monthe will tell a lot more.. fullclip

You know the English don't know how to cook, much less BBQ meat! [pyro]

My neighbor, who is from the UK, invites us over for a cookout see. Throws this big hunk of beef on the grill, burns[flame]it for about an hour then says dinner is served! Worst piece of so called London broil I ever had. I in turn had a nice BBQ for them a few weeks later with some choice rib-eyes, nice and rare and seared good on the outside, with my special seasonings. Ummmm so good he still marvels at my grilling skills. This fall he gets to help roast a pig at our annual dove shoot. Yeeeehawwww!

Ok, WHO pissed off the cows? They're mad for a reason and I want to know that reason!

Damn, cows have BFE (Mad Cow) and E-coli, Chickens have salmonella, Hogs have trichinosis, and fish have too much mercury.

The only safe thing to eat is lamb and beaver.. Oh wait, beaver can ruin your life too [:D]

Baaaaaaaaahhhh!

It had made steak alot easier for the poor people like to me get.  I also have to feed my guns now we need the price of ammo to drop by half across the board.

It's not exactly the head, it's the brain & spinal cord. The nervous system according to the news media.

Beerslayer...that first pics would be brangus, would it?  It look slike it has a little bit of ear to it.  I  LIke my herefords a bit more than them black ones.  I'm actually going to make out.  SOld the cattle I had when prices were high this fall.  I needed to make some fence improvements, so I plan on getting some here in the next month or so.

Indeed Cattle traded at $74.81 Friday, but last week It was $88.00-90.00.  The Packers are almost all running short work weeks so cattle could start backing up which will drive the prices even lower.  Who knows what will happen to the Cow market.
