Most consumers prefer beef over plant-based alternatives


I’m Clinton Griffiths with today’s AgDay Minute.

It appears most Americas still prefer beef over plant-based alternatives. Researchers at Kansas State, report people who prefer beef over plant-based options are willing to pay nearly two-dollars more per meal for a burger. But those who love plant-based protein are equally passionate about the choice and are willing to pay about a dollar-fifty more. The report says beef is consumed nearly three times more often than plant-based alternatives. The nationwide study involved more than 3-thousand people.

It’s a big question on people’s minds as we continue to battle the coronavirus when will things get back to normal? One business communications group did a poll. It says 50-percent of Americans think things will return to normal this fall or next year while 26-percent say it will happen sooner than that but 24-percent say it never will. When asked what they’re looking forward to most 62-percent said large gatherings of family and friends 36-percent said attending a concert.

There’s something more than frosted flakes here. U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers in Cincinnati intercepted a shipment of cereal originating from South America with help from a narcotics-detecting dog. When officers opened a box, they saw the cereal contained a white powder and the flakes were coated with a grayish substance. Turns out the shipment actually contained about 44-pounds of cocaine-coated corn flakes.
