Re: So what's the meat situation like in your area?
I was just thinking "phase two" is starting this week, starting to run out of meat, but it's there, but they're spreading it around to look like more, because a lot of stuff is missing.

I asked the meat dude there if he had ground sirloin, he said no they haven't been able to get it in. I said oh, really? He said yeah, they're having trouble getting it.

Then he went on to say pork and chicken were the worst, which now I'm seeing days where there is no regular pork chops or only dark meat pork items, still not completely out, BUT with the holiday weekend, I bet by tomorrow panic will start again.

Re: So what's the meat situation like in your area?
Go directly to the farmers... esp pork... they are having to kill the animals b/c the animals will be too big, and dangerous to take to the slaughter houses when they are able to open back up.

You can arrange to have your animal to be delivered to a local mom, and pop butcher... who can process it for you.

Split the cost with neighbors, and/or friends if you don't have enough freezer space, or enough $$ for the whole animal.

Sometimes you can have the animal processed at a cheaper rate if you give a portion of the meat in place of some of the money... and they can then sell the meat that you gave them to still be profitable for them.

Went to grocery store today. Had some meat. Not a ton but looked stocked enough for 4pm. Still out of a lot of food. Was gonna go into Walmart but the line was way too long. I’m all done with this waiting in line business to go spend my money.

Everything is super expensive especially meat and toilet paper. It’s depressing every time I check out. I get nervous because it’s so much money to feed my family.

Makes me wanna bypass the middle man and just throw the money into the toilet.

Hamburger that’s on sale is $6.79 a pound. That’s just the pink slime.

Re: So what's the meat situation like in your area?
All you guys saying no shortage, are you paying attention that all cuts and brands are there, because they're getting good at hiding it, they start to do a "spread" of what foods they do have.

I'm going to be a lot of shortages by Sunday afternoon, at least around here, Publix themselves told me having trouble getting it in. I noticed a few days ago, and got the standard line truck hasn't come in yet.

But yesterday got a guy who was willing to spill the beans, and told me having big trouble with pork and chicken, and haven't been able to get ground sirloin in days.

Also, been missing lots of Birdseye products, the peas that I wanted I guess two cases came in, but those were two cases over the area, and the guy told me that he don't know which store they went to LOL, okay, like musical chairs.

North Jersey, everything’s available. Prices slightly higher than a couple of months ago. The hamburger is coming in larger (3lb+) restaurant vacuum-packs as well as in the usual small white plastic trays.

There's no legit reason for Bird's Eye to be having shortages. But they are a well-connected globalist corporation, with incentive to play the starvation game for TPTB.

locally grown beef very plentiful. Chicken same, you can pretty much get what you want.

Been getting some pretty good wild caught trout and salmon deals too.

I’m in southeastern Virginia.Probably a half dozen steaks tops at my local grocery store.Canned goods section has looked scarce for weeks.Seen the frozen foods aisles damn near empty on a number of occasions.Brought home more than a few rotten pizzas as well as dairy products.Can’t imagine how things look at the discount grocery stores where such discounted sub par product are usually peddled.Wendy’s still missing a good third of a menu.

Re: So what's the meat situation like in your area?
Just walked over to the window and looked out into the pasture . there is still about one hundred and twenty ton of beef out there face down eating grass .
 Quoting: Bob 78158300


Ok but what if the slaughterhouse won't process them so they can make it to market? It's against the law for the farmer to butcher them if he could even afford a slaughterhouse.

Now what?

That is what I am facing. Get my meet from a small farm. They all depend on the slaughterhouse to process the meat. All the small slaughterhouses have a line a mile long that the small farmers aren't even allowed to get in since the giant slaughterhouses closed their doors.
