Russia and that Beef Price + Beef Prodution…

One thing is very clear and the price of beef is showing it! The production of beef in Russia is at full swing and the prices are dropping like a rock, here in Moscow. Beef is so cheap that Boza is a happy byproduct of that cheapness. Boza eats nothing but raw beef and raw beef bones now and the price is getting cheaper to do that for him everyday…

We pay 7 rubles per kilo for beef bones with meat and I just bought a kilo of beef rib-eye, for 136 rubles a kilo…

That is cheaper than pork is right now…

Okay lets give that in your price: 1 kilo = 2.2 pounds. So that means 7 rubles is .22c per kilo. That means .10c a pound for beef leg bones and lots of meat attached. The rib-eye is $1.97 a pound…

The reason I am mentioning all this is because just a year ago I was writing about the beef ranches being opened up in Russia, by farmers from Oklahoma and Texas in America. They saw the market need and they jumped on that market. Now it is showing at the store. This is with a ban on chilled beef from America, due to contaminants…

I figured that like pork and chicken, Russia protects her market and even though that beef market is being created by Americans with the ability to see the future, it still is Russian beef and that is all good. The Russians are learning and will spread the ranching ways like wildfire throughout Russia and beef will get cheaper yet…

I have watched the price fall from 700 to 800 rubles a kilo a year ago…
