I was talking with my brother who drives a milk truck for a living. He told me that due to recent low milk prices a lot of the dairies have sold off parts of their herd which is why there was a recent dip in hamburger prices but that now all production is being used for liquid products. This means that they are using up existing stocks of cheese and butter and that there will likely be a shortage or a sharp increase in butter and cheese prices just in time for the holidays.

I am not sure if this is only a California thing or if it applies to other parts of the country, I suspect to some extent it will affect the country as a whole.

So therefore, by extrapolation we can see that less cows eat less grain. More grain = more beer. Beer prices should take a sharp downturn! I'm all for it. :D:

Thanks for the heads up. That means I'll be buying extra butter and cheese now while prices are still low and loading up my freezer.
