Black Horse Update – 1/31/23

What came first…

the chicken or the egg?

Who cares anymore, they cost to much!

Eggs rationed at grocery stores; prices at record highs

From the article:

Eggs are being rationed at some grocery stores in Denver, Colorado, with inflation, the deadliest bird flu epidemic in U.S. history, and a new state law driving prices to record highs.

A sign posted on a barren shelf at a Whole Foods store in Denver, photographed by Axios, said, “Due to a nationwide shortage of eggs and to support all customers, we are limiting egg purchases to 2 cartons per customer. We apologize for any inconvenience.”

The average cost of eggs in a U.S. city rose to a record $3.59 in November, according to the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis’ most recent data. Prices are beginning to dip after demand surged around the holidays, but that won’t be immediately reflected on store shelves, Axios reported.

Consumer prices have been broadly rising with the rate of inflation climbing the highest it’s been in four decades in 2022, as reported by PBS….


Some eggs as high as $15 per dozen.

Some hens must have that Midas touch!


From the article:

…border wide open for millions of illegal aliens to enter, and have caused a huge explosion in the average family’s gasoline and home heating costs.

Inflation, after blowing up family budgets with a disastrous 9.1% mark last summer, still is at a white-hot 6.5% in the most recent assessment.

Now a new report from Just the News pointed out that Biden was touting “falling food prices.”

The problem is they “are actually rising.”

The report noted, “President Joe Biden touted falling food prices Thursday, but the latest federal data shows the price of food is actually on the rise and has been for more than a year. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics released new inflation data Thursday that showed the overall consumer price index dropped 0.1%, driven in part by a decrease in energy prices.”

Biden claimed on social media, “For the sixth month in a row, yearly inflation is down. It might be rising in economies around the world, but it’s coming down here. And gas prices, food, and more are following. That adds up to a break for families and proof that my plan is working.”

Are food prices falling?…

{Open article to answer poll yes or no.}


Falling out of the working class’s affordability!

Don’t they know that monthly inflation… adds up by the end of the year?

This won’t help supply or prices!

From the article:

…an estimated 100,000 chickens.

Fortunately, there were no injuries sustained by firefighters or farm workers.

Images of the massive egg farm blaze emerged across social media. One witness said smoke from the chicken coop fire could be seen from miles away….


At 85% daily laying capacity that 7,083 dozen @ day!

Hens don’t lay an egg every day!



Hope this don’t get like food processing plants last year.

Beef in short supply in 2023


From the article:

Of all the challenges coming at the U.S. pork industry in the year ahead, economists agree it likely won’t be the price of pigs. 

“The last several USDA Hogs & Pigs Reports have provided a static sow herd with no jolts in productivity,” says Joe Kerns, president of Partners for Production Agriculture. “We are likely not going to produce ourselves out of profit.”

But the challenges producers will face aren’t small. Many believe the threat of a border-closing disease such as African swine fever (ASF) continues to top the list. Not losing sight on biosecurity is key to protecting the U.S. pig herd….


Black and White Horse riders working together?

2023 outlook for food shortages not good…

Revelation 6:5-6

KJV(i) 5 And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand. 6 And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.

Matthew 24:1-13

KJV(i) 1 And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to him for to shew him the buildings of the temple. 2 And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down. 3 And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world? 4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. 5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. 6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. 7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. 8 All these are the beginning of sorrows. 9 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake. 10 And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. 11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. 12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. 13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
