Analysts’ estimates in a survey by Urner Barry, Agrimoney’s sister publication, for the nation’s feedyards with a capacity of 1,000 or more cattle.
The figures are presented as percentages of year-before numbers.
The averages were calculated without using the high and low estimates.
USDA’s monthly cattle on feed report is scheduled for release later on Friday.
