On 3/19, back when this all started, I did a small order from our local wholesaler. Now I usually get cases of eye of round for the beef portion of the dogs’ diet, its usually slightly more expensive than the top round, but its packaged in smaller chubs which makes it easier for us to work with. But at that time the top round was listed at $3.83/pound.
Wednesday this week I called the wholesaler about doing another order. We don’t NEED anything yet, but I wanted to keep the freezers topped off. The wholesaler can’t get ANY eye of round, they don’t know when they’ll be able to get it. They have top round, and its $7.34/pound.
Depending on your grocery store you might not have seen the price increase, but its coming folks. Hang onto your hats, cause yah, I expect it to only get worse from here.
