Beef prices on the rise at area stores

The price of beef is going through the roof. Reid Blossom with the Illinois Beef Association says beef prices are rising due to high demand. The problem is there was a drought a-couple of years ago, so the supply is low. The price per pound has already gone up about 15-cents-per-pound. That means people in Illinois are dishing out about three-55 for every pound of beef they buy. Blossom says prices will start to decrease once producers can replenish their herds and more cattle are available in the marketplace.
