Little friendly advice to my fellow Broncos fans. With the drought this summer hay prices across the nation have seen a huge jump. Just a couple years ago a bale of cow hay was $3.00 in Colorado. Ranchers are now paying upwards of $10.00 or more for the same bale. Ranchers across the nation have had to send their herds to market thus driving the price of beef down. This is only temporary. There are some great deals out there right now. If you have a freezer stock up for the playoff run right now because I don't think we are going to see $4.00 choice sirloin anytime soon if ever again.

Factor in the price of fuel, grain, and the fact our government just approved a third stimulus commodities are going up across the board.

Take advantage of this dip now. Happy tailgating and BBQing!
