Beef: It’s what you can’t afford for dinner — for years to come.

Retail beef prices are near record highs. During 2013, the price consumers paid for ground beef climbed roughly 5%, according to government data beef price data released Thursday finds that consumers paid an average of nearly $3.50 per pound for 100% ground beef.

What’s more, experts say that climbing beef prices are here to stay. The USDA’s Economic Research Service projects that beef prices will rise faster than almost anything else this year. Don Close, a cattle economist with Rabo AgriFinance says he thinks prices this year could rise 7-8% and roughly the same amount in 2015.

    I’m already seeing signs of poaching on the trails, in all seasons. Our rangers and game wardens don’t have time to notice, they’re too busy harassing people(me in particular) about parking.

      If the Game Wardens aren’t busting poachers I think the only course of action is to hire more of them, give them bigger pensions, raise your taxes and maybe throw a couple drones their way (all drone contracts reserved for Government insiders, of course)

        I’d rather they didn’t bust hungry people, but if they are going to waste my money by existing, I wish they wouldn’t piss and moan about every little thing.
