I wonder if Mad Cow will cause a shortage of beef and drive the prices up or will the price be discounted to encourage consumers to continue purchasing beef. Hopefully the latter will happen.

I'm thinking that if this is one isolated case, and with 8 countries prohibiting our beef to their countries, and a segment of the U.S. population pulling back, the supply will go up causing prices to come down. Just my thoughts. This will be worth following.

Chagan...same here. We're not changing a thing over here either. Besides, I'm looking forward to the Prime Rib, even though it will be cooked in the oven.

Another news report....it was announced that it is expected that beef prices should drop quite a lot due to the latest situation. I'll have to see it to believe it.
