Cattlemen get some positive news

The article reports about increasing prices of poultry products in both wholesale and retail markets. Every extra dollar that a consumer spends on gas is a dollar that can no longer be spent on something else. Higher gas prices eat into a consumer's disposable income, and a reduction in disposable income affects the consumption of everything else including meat. Beef demand in particular should be expected to be somewhat sensitive to changes in disposable income since a relatively large proportion of beef is consumed away from home. It appears that a significant factor supporting demand in the meat complex is the popularity and widespread acceptance of high protein diets such as the Atkins and South Beach diets.
