ABSTRACT
The article reports on the rising price of commodities to maintain agricultural products particularly livestock. According to Ohio State University beef coordinator John Grimes, demand for beef has been great and market prices are outstanding but the simultaneous increase of consumer costs particularly gasoline could easily take its toll on the beef trade. Grimes refers to grazing as one way embraced by beef producers to lower feed expenses.
