Future meat shortage?

Discuss being prepared for contingencies and emergencies. Oh yeah, and the coming Zombie Apocalypse, of course!

If you ever have a chance to acquire some freshly butchered goat liver,.... jump on it!!! I serve it medium rare, with sauteed onion and bacon, on top of mashed potato's!!

Makes me salivate just writing this!!! :dance:

I have 3 large dogs that get a large portion of their intake from food she makes. It's typically gizzards, hearts, liver, etc., with rice and frozen vegetables. The meat stuff is what most peeps won't eat. But, it is actually not bad tasting.

It might come down to all of us sharing the dogs food... LOL

Tongue or cheek tacos are a regular staple in my house.

My sister has a goat farm now.
I never cared for goat milk or goat meat.
As a matter of fact I don't drink milk of any kind.
Same here, except for the sister having a goat farm. I can eat the meat but prefer cow. 😁

Buy a couple pair of breeding rabbits. Within a short period of time you'll be set for meat. And they're very easy to butcher.

Yup, rabbits are quite prolific, good tasting, easy to butcher, and have the highest meat to bone ration of any edible animal, I know of.

Went to Fry's today, checked out the meat counter. Lots of inventory. However, sign said limit 2 packages of anything, and the prices were quite high. $5.49 for ground beef.

I am a peaceable man, and have no wish to see war or revolution. However, if the time ever comes when there is no bacon, then I make no guarantees.

I think it varies by store quite a bit. Friday’s typically are always low simply because I think a lot of people shop on Friday(payday?) I have been a couple times this week for random stuff and lots of meet yesterday and a lot less today. Limit signs up for a bout a week

get yourselves a big freezer and fill it up. Food will get you through times with no money better than times with money but no food. for the price of a cheap pistol you can have 6 -8 weeks worth of food in your house. Cheap insurance if ya ask me.

Just hope that big freezer doesn't go on the fritz and it all thaws out at one time. We recently had the fridge crap out and ended up pitching some stuff.

Yup,... prepping, with a stocked freezer,... without a generator to insure function, isn't good prepping, imo!
