Hay Shortage May Cost Us At The Store

A shortage of a certain type of cattle feed could prove expensive to consumers.

Hay is in short supply because of an ongoing drought in the southern plains.

The price of hay delivered to farmers has more than doubled since July of last year.

That is forcing some farmers to decide between buying the hay, selling off cattle, or moving them to rented, greener pastures.

The added costs to farmers could show up in the supermarket as higher beef prices.
