Economists expect higher prices and a shift in available meats

Consumers should prepare for higher prices and a shift in meat availability at the grocery store.

Economists expect less beef and pork on the market because cattle herds are starting to decline and they are still contracting, meaning a smaller beef supply.

Beef and pork are the most expensive meats right now due to inflation. Poultry is the least expensive.

This could ultimately lead to a drop in U.S. meat exports this year.
