Modern Ag Fuels Your Summer Cookout!

When you heat up your grill this summer, you’ll have plenty of food to share at a low-price thanks to advancements in modern ag and crop protection technology.

An informal survey from the American Farm Bureau Federation (AFBF) found that the average cost of a summer cookout for 10 people is $55.84, or less than $6 a person—3% less than a year ago. That menu includes all of your favorite cookout staples: hot dogs, cheeseburgers, buns, pork spare ribs, deli potato salad, baked beans, corn chips, lemonade, chocolate milk, watermelon, and ketchup and mustard.
