A local farmer made a video recently about a conversation she had with a woman who was oblivious about skyrocketing food prices.
In the video she revealed that she had 50 head of cattle and it costs her $8,000 to feed them every month.
While she didn’t reveal what the specific item was, she said something they have to buy for their cattle used to cost $24 two years ago. Last year it was $46 and this year it’s up to $96 dollars.
She is adamant that people realize that food prices are going to go up and go up a lot.
This is… disconcerting. From the farmer’s mouth. pic.twitter.com/R8f8e8jMcT

I found the original video and it was made just a couple weeks ago on May 29th. In the description she wrote:
Wake the hell up asap! Us farmers are doing the best we can to grow what you all are going to need, but we legitimately are taking from our own families to feed yours.
Here’s a few responses to her comments:
Truth. Food prices going up. Input costs are outrageous. Some Producers not planting a crop or raising animals or at least cutting back on chemicals/fertilizer/expensive feed ingredients; this hurts production and will add to higher food costs

Agreed. Plus, you factor-in that farmers in MN and ND had delayed planting due to wet fields, cost of seed… the lady in the video is spot on: "It's not going to be alright".

I think I’m going to buy more Ramen noodles – creamy chicken style – for the Bidenpocolypse.
