Americans may turn to poultry in wake of high beef prices

Posted:

WATERLOO (KWWL) -- Americans' love affair with beef may be challenged because prices are expected to remain high.

According to economists, a tight supply of cattle may keep beef prices high over the next few years.

Ranchers have reduced supplies in response to rising prices of corn and soybeans fed to cattle.

The USDA says it expects more Americans will turn to chicken and turkey.
