Steve Ammerman, at the New York State Farm Bureau tells CBS6 that our nation's drought is affecting many of the prices this month.

Ammerman also explained that the drop in beef prices was expected following the drought in the Midwest.

He says rice prices are falling because countries overseas have huge stockpiles.

Ammerman also says that rice prices will likely climb again as the drought in the U.S. affects the world market.
