When COVID-19 outbreaks closed meat processing plants across the US, a meat shortage and unprecedented meat prices soon followed. With no plants taking animals, some farmers were forced to euthanize their herds. But what exactly caused this break in the supply chain and could the industry have avoided it? Business Insider visits a farm in Minnesota facing this devastating reality and another in California that was able to avoid it altogether.

  • Amazing Video. Bitcoin has faced a rather strong resistance after its explosion to the $11,100 highs. At the recent lows, the asset traded as low as $10,300 - around 8% ish below the local highs couple of weeks back. Despite this slight slip and the fact that BTC remains above $14,000, we should all remain bullish on Bitcoin. I think bitcoin could soon move higher to $20,000 in a couple of days. As a crypto trader the past few weeks has recorded immerse benefits all round,,, my only regret now is not knowing Mr taylor on time, his top notch signals remains the bedrock of the successes recorded in my personal trading portfolio. his trading technics helps me get my profit... i already made $100k with his. investing on cryptocurrencies is now the new source of income for everyone he continues to be an inspiration to all who have been fortunate to have made use of his signals....You all can reach out to him through morgantaylor587@gmail.com or on WhatsApp +1 409 299 3921

  • Speaking as a trucker that delivers to the distribution centers. Such as Walmart, Kroger, Food Lion and the rest. Before the stopped production. I would be taking a full load of beef to a Walmart or another one. Where we drop loaded trailers and pick up an empty one. What was happening was I would get there with a loaded trailer. Drop it. Then have to wait for their local driver to bring a empty trailer back from the landfill. They were not selling enough meat, so their distribution centers were not shipping it to the stores. So every full trailer they got of fresh beef, chicken or pork. They would take one to the dump. It wasn't spoiled meat, nothing wrong with it. They just didn't have any more room to store it. So, throw it away. Of a trailer full. Is 42,000 pounds of meat. Yeah, they threw it away, all over the country they were and are doing this daily.

  • Can I remind you how we got into all this mess⁉️ It's governments trying to control what they assume to know but don't know, The freemarket❕ Government intervention in the freemarket system through actions like the infamous covid lockdowns. Solution: Let legislators keep their opinions off of how people run their lives & businesses. And everything will get inorder. Stop acting like you don't know how we go here. It's Government Action, Government is the problem

  • Once again the leading crypto asset BITCOIN is currently trading up marginally at above $11,500 region as the BTC bulls now target $12,000 resistance level and they are still acting very strong by taking full control of the market. However with the strength possessed by the BTC bulls, it is wise we get involved in a day trading to grow a very strong portfolio with the little we hold at the moment. its been successful for me for over 2 years because i was smart enough to find a working strategy/daily signals which was provided by a pro trader known as Young, he has been a known signal provider in the crypto space today which has proven to be very accurate and yield great profits. Last month i was able to grow my 1.1btc to 6.8btc with Young daily signals which you would agree is a very good profit, however i would advice everyone out there to take great advantage to grow the little they hold now and trade with his signals so as to grow a very strong portfolio ahead, Young can be reach via Instagram via @you_ngli or email linyoun56g@gmail .com

  • For me Abbie, (and thanks for asking anyway), when there is no chicken or other meat there that I would buy at times, I would go without, so my opinion may not really matter. I like your question though! I am a person that enjoys eating meat and DO, as eating meat has become a staple and the norm in our society. Processed and deli meats are easy to buy / prepare and consume. Chicken meat is EVERYWHERE. I'm a lay person; a consumer. I buy chicken and chicken products ( we can't really avoid it ). It's on all our grocery shelves, in one way or another. But Abbie, when I'm at a grocery store, I'm not looking at such things like that. I'm looking at what I need more than what I want, and wonder if I have enough freezer space to store it. Working in retail, I'm guessing many people buy day to day, or week to week. I'm a single guy and have only one frig/freezer, so I look at other ways of keeping foods for longer periods of time. I guess my words are long already.

People that can afford 50 dollars on a pack raw steak definitely don't prepare it in a way that tasteful.. They spend $50 on steaks throw it on a grill, over cook it and be disappointed it eats like a Top Round.
