Actually the things the writer totally missed are:

(1) The cost of producing meat continues to climb — the retail price continues to spiral upward — but the profit to the farmer continues to fall to make it not financially viable to produce meat — so the cost increases more.

(2) As long as we keep dumping so much of our production into corn for ethanol to add to gas, the cost of corn for livestock feed will continue to go up and up.
