Texas Drought Takes Cow Numbers Down By 600K

Posted 12/17/2011 8:12am by Erick & Patty Taylor.

Why is what's happening in Texas important to us here in New England?

Excerpts from the article (see full article link below):

"The worst drought in Texas’ history has led to the largest-ever one-year decline in the leading cattle-state’s cow herd, raising the likelihood of increased beef prices as the number of animals decline and demand remains strong."

“Consumers are going to pay more because we’re going to have less beef,” Anderson said. “Fewer cows, calves, less beef production and increasing exports.”

The U.S. Department of Agriculture estimates that beef prices will increase up to 5.5 in 2012, in part because the number of cattle has declined. That follows a 9 percent increase in beef prices in the past year.
