Skip to comments.China buying more US beef and soybeans

The new sale of 1,400 tons of beef, made in the week period beginning April 10, comes on top of a 1,500-ton purchase made earlier this month the highest weekly purchase ever for China, according to U.S. Meat Export Federation spokesman Joe Schuele
I remember reading something where China sending out a message to their citizens to start prepping for food shortages last month.
Should we be restocking our prepping supplies not rely on the things to open up again?
I think I’ll put a couple of deer in my freezers.
We already have meat supp;y shortages.
China can’t feed her people!
The Chinese I know are all preppers. They have their freezers full of fish and meat and garages full with cereals and canned stuff.
“China cant feed her people!” and “The Chinese I know are all preppers”
I think that might be correct. This will be something to watch closely.
Any shortage we might have might be related to virus outbreaks in factories. If the virus new outbreaks go down with the hot weather that should resolve itself.
It’s kind of ironic. We sign a trade deal requiring them to purchase more of our meat and I’m guessing we are a few days away from everyone on this site demanding a moratorium on meat exports.
After reading about the sanitary conditions at the packing companies, staffed with thousand of illegal workers, we should sell China all the meat processed before these places were closed.
And well be the ones facing the shortages.
A friend knows someone who has a beef herd and has been told by NYS they have to reduce the size of their herd by a certain percentage or they would be fined.
And this with a looming beef shortage in this country.
The left WANTS to create food shortages. People free to grow their own cannot be controlled.
The best way to control the populace is to control their food supply.
We need their exports to make phone calls, they need our exports to eat.
Stick a 500 percent premium on it.
As with oil, let’s keep it cheap and plentiful for Americans before sending anything outside our borders.
“we should sell China all the meat processed before these places were closed.”
Send Wuhan back to Wuhan.
Gotta love it!
Pork was the big thing...and we’ve already shut down at least two HUGE plants.
Now I think we’re getting close o where food prices will rise, because demand will increase.
I think everyone in the world will be stockpiling food. This and the UN’s warning about governments not preventing protests and limiting freedoms suggests that there will be a lot more people planning on prepping months of supply.
I’m thinking we need to re-examine meat exports. We may end up with a shortage ourselves.
Good! That means you do not have to stock up, if everything heads south!
You’ll live. You’ve been likely eating it for years with no affects, just like the rest of us.
I recently have a month long stock a food too, and two 200 liters drums of premium gas on top as well.
WHY does NYS want the herd reduced in size?
There is no rhyme or reason to what they do.
I don’t see that it’s any of their business, but our overlords make it theirs anyway.
