USDA Surveying Cattle Operations in July
New York Ag Connection - 06/14/2017

In July, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) will survey about 9,300 cattle operations nationwide to provide an upto-date measure of U.S. cattle inventories.

"This information helps producers make timely, informed business decisions and plan for herd expansion or reduction. It also helps packers and government leaders evaluate expected slaughter volume for future months and determine potential supplies for export," said Northeastern Regional Director King Whetstone.

"Obtaining the current count of cattle will serve as an important decision-making tool for the entire agriculture industry."

During the first two weeks of July, Northeastern producers will have the opportunity to report their beef and dairy cattle inventories, calf crop, death loss and cattle on feed information. To make it as easy as possible for producers to participate in the survey, NASS offers the option of responding via the Internet, telephone, mail or a personal interview with a local NASS representative.

The July Cattle report will be released on July 21.

For more information, call the NASS Northeastern Regional Field Office at (800) 498-1518.
