Meat Prices At All-Time High
BUTLER TOWNSHIP -- Local meat prices are hitting an all time high, and with Memorial Day just around the corner, it could affect your barbecue plans.
"I would like one filet," said Angela Newland, customer and Brunk's Meat Shop.
Be prepared to dish out more for your burgers and steaks this holiday weekend.
"In the past 3 or 4 months, beef prices are up at least 10%," said Jack Brunk, Owner of Brunk's Meat Shop in Butler Township.
Last year you paid $3.78 for a pound of ground chuck, this year, you'll pay 20 cents more.
"That's a lot," said Newland, "especially for middle class people that's having a hard time making ends meet, gotta find other ways to feed their kids."
Ground chuck is a whopping $3.98 a pound.
And for Brunk, it's the highest price he's seen in his 42 years in business.
"Prices in general on just about everything are up," said Brunk.
That's right bacon lovers, bad news for you too.
The price of your beloved breakfast meat is also at an all time high.
"They had a disease running, killing a lot of the smaller hogs and pigs and that fed into the price of pork," said Brunk.
As for the price of beef, it's due to the drought happening across the nation, and ranchers selling off their herds when prices were low.
But even as the price of beef goes up, it's not going to ruin Newland's holiday weekend.
"I'll probably still get hamburgers, but less. Maybe more hotdogs or chicken maybe," said Newland.
Mr. Brunk believes the price of beef is at its peak and over the next few months should start to go down.
But as for this weekend, you can expect to pay around $4 a pound for hamburger meat.
