Default Chicken prices

Holy cow, went to HEB friday after work to pick a few things for the weekend. Drummettes - $2.19/lb. Whole wings $1.79/lb. Legs 1.29/lb.

That is about 20 to 30 cent increase per lb in less than a month.

I bought some chicken drumsticks from Fiesta last week for .69 cents a pound or some such nonsense after a ten dollar purchase was made.

HEB has good sales I've noticed, but their prices always seem to be jumpy.
Of course in all fairness I'm not too routine of an HEB shopper, closest one is 13 miles away or so, and my Fiesta/Kroger and in a pinch Wal-Mart are all within 2-5 miles of where I live.

I've been getting 10# bags of leg quarters for $3.90 per 10# bag. Big quarters too, I've never gotten more that 11 in a bag. The brand is called Sanderson Farms. The last bags of other brands I bought averaged 13-17 quarters per bag.

Default Iran, a new nuclear treaty, and chicken thighs

There are many drivers of domestic chicken prices but the most surprisingly driver is geopolitical. Americans love white meat. Its a shame, I know. However, that means domestic producers of chicken need to export the extra dark meat to other countries, primarily Russia. Russia plays the chicken card and bans imports whenever she wants something. The last time this happen was in Ws first term after he passed protectionist steel policies that helped PA but hurt Russia. When Russia bans imports, the US has excess supply of dark meat driving prices down.

Well, Russia has banned US imports again. There is some expectation that Obama will address this issue when Medvedev comes to the US this Wednesday when they discuss everything from Iran to a new nuclear treaty to chicken thighs. I wonder if prices are starting to assume a resolution. Just a guess.

The politics and economics of meat is definitely interesting. Thanks for the education.
