USDA’s monthly cattle-on-feed report was released on Friday.
The following data compare the government’s data with analysts’ estimates in the Urner Barry survey for cattle in the nation’s feedyards that have a capacity of 1,000 or more animals.
The figures are expressed as a percentage of the year-before number.
|Average of estimates||Range of estimates|
|On-feed February 1||102||102.4||101.8 – 103.0|
|Placed in January||99.0||101.9||97.8 – 103.5|
|Marketed in January||101.0||101.0||97.6 – 101.6|
Urner Barry, like Agrimoney, is owned by AgriBriefing.
