Beef Shortages Are Coming – Prepare Now

February 15, 2024 0 Comments

There’s a beef shortage coming.

In February 2024, the USDA announced that the American beef industry hit a record low with beef cattle inventory dropping to 28.2 million this year—the lowest levels since the 1970s. 

Agricultural economists blame it on an ongoing drought, along with high feed costs and inflation.

Others report high prices are due to ranchers having fewer cattle.

While these factors may contribute to fewer cattle and higher prices, something more sinister is at play.

There is a war on food unfolding, with meat at the center of the battle.   

Read on to discover the alarming reality of meat in America and how to prepare for exorbitant prices and coming shortages. 

Most Beef Sold in the USA Is Not from the USA

If you ask most Americans where their meat comes from, they mistakenly believe it comes from cattle farms in the USA.

The truth is, the majority of beef Americans purchase in the states comes from other countries.

White Oak Pastures explains:

Our beef imports come from all over the world, apparently now including Paraguay. Other countries we import from include, but are certainly not limited to: Brazil, Uruguay, Australia, Namibia, New Zealand, Mexico, Canada, Japan, China, and...the list continues. The beef we import is mostly lean meat trim, and like 50/50 trim, is really not a marketable product as a stand-alone item. But, when mixed with 50/50 trim, multinational packers can create a product many of us know well: 80/20 or 90/10 ground beef. Today, thanks to the fact that there is no mandatory ‘Country of Origin’ labeling law, consumers are consuming beef raised and slaughtered in these foreign countries under the guise that it's a product of the USA.

It’s not just beef being imported. Did you know that 74% of our lamb is imported into the USA as well? We used to have 56 million head of lamb just three generations ago. Now we have only five million head.

Farmers Are Being Forced Out

Our local farmers are being regulated out of business, which is one of the main reasons there are fewer US cattle for beef.

Recent regulations put in place to “protect the environment” have hit our farmers hard.  

According to the Paso Robles Press, “Family farms cannot afford to keep up with increasing regulations involving how their crop is produced and in complying with labor laws — leaving large corporate farms as the only ones who can withstand the increased output.”

In the article, San Luis Obispo County Farm Bureau Executive Director, Brent Burchett, explains, “It hurts our family farms the worst. […] It is regulations that when you aren’t working in agriculture, on paper might look very rational.”

But he adds, “It’s harder now to make a living farming than it ever has been.”

Just this week, Glenn Beck spoke with Shad Sullivan, the R-CALF USA Private Property Rights Committee chair. 

Sullivan agrees regulations and the anti-animal ideology are making it harder, but adds the WEF 2030 Agenda and the push to regulate our farmers out of business will lead to mass starvation. 

Shad Sullivan warns,“Millions would starve overnight under global sustainability initiatives.”

All we have to do is look to Mao for how this plays out. 

Shad continues, “We are on the cusp of something very dangerous if Americans don't wake up, and I don't say that to scare people. I say it because independent production, independent consumption, independent thought is so important. Especially right now.”

Corporate Control of Our Meat

The majority of meat processing in the US is controlled by only four companies: Tyson, Cargill, JBS, and National Beef.

85% of the US beef market is controlled by these companies.

If that isn’t disturbing enough, most of our meat industry is under foreign ownership.

JBS USA Holdings, Inc. is a meat processing company and a wholly owned subsidiary of the Brazilian multinational JBS S.A.

National Beef is controlled by Brazilian beef producer, Marfrig Global Foods S.A.

Cargill is America's largest privately owned company. Tyson is also American owned. 

WH Group, JBS, Hormel, and Tyson control about 67% of the pork market.

The WH Group is the largest pork company in the world and is owned by China.

Hormel, while US owned, has The Vanguard Group, Inc. and BlackRock, Inc. as its second- and third-largest shareholders.

And as mentioned above, JBS is Brazilian. Tyson is American owned.

Tyson and Pilgrim's Pride control about 45% of the chicken market.

The danger in this—other than the obvious—is when these corporate packers team up with global elites and governments to implement anti-meat policies and Agenda 2030 policies.

In fact, Tyson and Cargill are leading the fake meat market.

In October 2023, Tyson invested in Protix, a Netherlands-based insect ingredients maker. Tyson is not only taking a minority stake in the company, but is also working alongside it to build a US factory.

Cargill invested in Bflike, a Belgian food-tech company whose plant-based ingredients are used to produce faux meat and fish.

Elites Lobbying for Synthetic, Lab-Grown Meat

In addition to farmers being forced out of business and mass consolidation of the meat-processing industry, there is also the issue of elites using their money to change America’s food landscape.

For example, Bill Gates is buying up massive amounts of farmland—and he isn’t stopping.

Bill Gates has already said we should not eat beef unless it is grown in a lab, and he is actively looking for opportunities to create, promote, and sell synthetic meat.

Gates told MIT Technology Review, “I do think all rich countries should move to 100% synthetic beef. You can get used to the taste difference, and the claim is they’re going to make it taste even better over time.”

(If you’d rather not “get used to the taste difference,” stock up on the Mega Protein Kit with Real Meat.)

Gates' dream is already coming to fruition.

Lab-grown meat or cell-cultured meat, which is grown from real animal cells, has already been approved for sale in the US.

Good Meat recently received FDA approval for lab-grown poultry, which involves using “a big tank similar to those that ferment beer” to grow cells.

Then, according to the San Francisco Examiner, “After around six weeks, the cells are ready to be meat-ified. Through 3D printing, molding and other techniques familiar products begin to take shape. And finally, it's ready to eat.”

(If you’d rather not eat 3D-printed meat or eggs, stock up on Ready Hour Freeze-Dried White Meat Chicken and Whole Egg Powder.)

Bugs Appearing on Grocery Store Shelves

Old, empty egg cartons filled with crickets crawling around.

In addition to lab-created meat products, there is also a push for humans to start eating bugs for protein.

The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation is backing All Things Bugs, a company claiming to be “the world’s leading innovator in the insect industry.”

They produce Griopro cricket powder, which is used for food and beverages including pasta, baked goods, smoothies, meat extenders, and more.

(Instead of cricket powder, we suggest Ready Hour All-Purpose White Flour. Not only is it bug-free, but it is specially packaged to prevent bugs from getting in.)

It’s not just Bill Gates. Tyson Foods and Ardent Mills have recently partnered with insect protein producers.

Currently, there are over one 100 insect-farming tech startups in the United States alone.

It won’t be long before a beef shortage takes place and bugs are used as substitutes.

What Can We Do to Prepare

Here are a few things you can do to prepare: 

Educate yourself on the Constitution and what’s going on. Share this article and the interview with Shad with your friends and family. Remember, knowledge is power. 

Stock up on protein-packed emergency food. Stock up on real protein like our MEGA Protein Kit with Real Meat.

Support local farmers. Shop at the local farmers’ market or butcher shop. Make connections with these farmers for the future.

Start hobby farming. If your area allows hobby farming, now is the time to get ducks or chickens.

Grow your own veggies and fruits. Get heirloom seeds for yourself and your loved ones and start your own veggie garden today. 

Start stocking up on your real meat, friends.

In liberty,
