Heavy Lifting - thoughts and web finds by an economist

For some reason, lately I have been more interested in the agricultural sector and how things are proceeding. As someone who lives in the city and 100% relies upon someone else to grow/produce the food I eat, it seems only reasonable to keep tabs on what's happening in the ag sector, if only to complain about the lack of corn and the price of beef in an educated manner.
This report comes from today's BEEF Stocker e-mail flash:
For the week ending April 29, according to the National Agricultural Statistics Service:
A little bit of weather on the planting side and a little bit of weather in the growing stage and a little bit of weather on the harvest side and the next thing you know - prices for food might increase, but perhaps not as much as in the past as the raw plat is a small percentage of the cost of most processed foods.
All the more reason to diversify our consumption across weather systems. That is, promoting international trade of Ag. products.Post a Comment
