    I've been looking locally to buy a whole beef and the prices at that scale seem to be consistently about $9/lb (packaged). I had heard that $5-7/lb was more typical. What are you seeing in the market and do you think I'm just noticing inflation and all of the prices I heard are just outdated?

    I just put 2 beef in my freezer for $5.63/pound cut and wrapped, looks to be High Choice. This is a local market phenomenon, and the problem is probably aren't dealing with the actual producer of the beef but a middleman that has marked it up. I'd recommend buying whole beef from a guy who can show you the steer standing on the ground looking at you. This may not be possible depending on where you are, but it will be more expensive.

    Out here in Eastern Washington, we buy directly from the rancher. Current whole price is $7.50/lb, packaged. Half beef price is $8.05/lb, packaged.

    But they've also given us the warning that they will be balancing their books this week and to expect a price change soon. Unfortunately, we can't take advantage, as we took delivery of a half cow a few months ago and it's just the two of us.

    We watch the herds from afar, as they have quite a social media presence (the ranchers and the cows). The cows are moved seasonally to keep in warmer climes during the winter, eating whatever they can find on the southern ranch.

    The economics of my deer and elk hunting addiction is looking better than ever.
