We are all watching out for scams. I called marks meats and the man that answered the phone exhaled at my request (1/2 of beef unprocessed) and said beef prices are up. After a momentary pause he said $3.68. Then I called Pete's Meats. His price was $3.19 unprocessed. To keep things honest i did only ask Pete for a hind quarter. But you would think that a bulk price is going to be the same. People, if you want a cheaper price you will have to go to an auction. I may be calling Pete back. Sorry Mark, you get no call from me.
