Trilateral Protein Heat Map

As summer enters its dog days, appetites become curbed.  Many switch from grilling protein to eating salads.  This is reflected in this week’s heat map.  The only items that are in rising seasonal (10-year) trends this time of year are ground beef, inside beef rounds, chicken thighs, and eggs.
Eggs are a BUY as they are 50% cheaper than this time last year and should get price support as producers reduce their flock and schools get back in session in September.
