Lee Schulz, associate professor, was interviewed for a Nov. 15 Missouri Farmer Today story, "Domestic meat demand remains strong."
Lee Schulz, Extension ag economist with Iowa State University, says the food service industry still isn’t at the level it was before the pandemic.
“We’ve continued to see strong domestic demand, but I think that demand has changed a lot because of the consumption patterns,” he says.
Schulz credited the food system with adjusting to the dramatic shifts. “It’s also showing some flexibility from the industry to be able to pivot and get more product into grocery stores,” he says.
