Drought’s Toll on U.S. Agriculture Points to Even-Higher Food Prices
Went to go buy a brisket for The 4th of July festivities but they are charging 8.00dollars a pound now and whooping 80.00 dollars for the average Brisket!. it's only going to get worst as time passes.
The current drought is on pace to be one of the worst ever. One of the hardest-hit states is California, home to about 70,000 farms and ranches with a combined output of about $50 billion a year. The dairy industry accounts for the largest chunk of the state’s agricultural revenue, followed by almonds and grapes.
