STATELINE (WIFR) -- If you think your grocery bill is higher than normal, you’re right. Food prices are going up partially due to low temperatures and drought in several other states.

Farmers are now producing fewer crops, creating a chain reaction.

For example, ranches are paying more to feed their cows, leading to higher milk prices. Last month, the price of beef jumped 4%, the most it’s been in 10 years. The government predicts prices will rise over 3% this year.
