Cattle on Feed report on 19 November 2021

The USDA's National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) released the new Cattle on Feed report, on 19 November, which you can download and read at the end of the article.

Cattle on Feed contains the monthly total number of cattle and calves on feed, placements, marketings, and other disappearances; by class and feedlot capacity for selected states; the number of feedlots and fed cattle marketings by size groups for selected states. Data is organised by state and by the U.S.

More specifically, the Cattle on Feed survey provides estimates of the number of cattle being fed a ration of grain, silage, hay and/or protein supplements for the slaughter market that are expected to produce a carcass that will grade select or better.

This survey is conducted in the 16 largest cattle-feeding states. About 2,000 known cattle feeders with a capacity of 1,000 or more head are enumerated. Feedlots with 1,000 or more head capacity represent about 85 per cent of all fed cattle in the U.S. The 16 largest states represent 98 per cent of U.S. cattle on feed in lots of 1,000 head or more capacity.

Data are used in conjunction with Cattle Inventory data from January and July to obtain a measure of cattle on feed not included in the survey.
