Get a rope

The increase in beef prices does more than just make your burgers more costly: it also brings an increase in cattle rustling.

With prices now topping $120 per hundredweight, it's becoming more cost-effective to steal a steer. And it doesn't necessarily require the thief to jump the fence, either; even cattle rustling has gone sort of high-tech.

Of course, we still have cottonwood trees and ropes to stretch, should the circumstances warrant.
