Summer Cookouts Could Have Beefed Up Costs


The LSU AgCenter says summer cookouts could get pricey due to the cost of beef.  Wholesale prices are at historically high levels.

The LSU AgCenter says the Midwest drought in 2012 led to a shortage of hay as well as higher corn prices, both affecting beef prices.

Not all cuts of beef are expected to see the same high prices.

Cattle producers are expected to reap the benefits of the higher prices.

If you’re looking to throw a bbq on the cheap, the AgCenter says consider serving chicken because production of the birds is up and prices are more stable.
