It is ridiculous that cattle are not being sold right now because the price dropped out of the market. Most cattle sales and auctions aren’t even bringing a high enough price to cover the cost of raising a calf. And yet, all over the news, there is not meat in the grocery stores and the prices are raised. There is rationing. Is that a joke? I can go drive around and send you pictures of literally thousands of cattle ready for slaughter. Retailers and slaughterhouses /meat packing plants are bending over the US in a time of crises. It’s clear cut price gouging which is supposed to be illegal in the US. It’s time for the government to get involved. I am not big on government involvement on anything. That should tell you something. There is no meat shortage. It’s 100 percent greedy retailers and meat packers/processors.
