Southeastern cattle producers will provide input for January report


ATHENS, GA – In January, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s National Agricultural Statistics

Service (NASS) will survey about 40,000 cattle operations nationwide to provide an up-to-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 Southern Regional Director Anthony

Prillaman. “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 January, Alabama, Florida, Georgia, and South Carolina 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 convenient as possible for producers to participate in the survey, NASS

offers the option of responding via the Internet, telephone, or mail.


NASS safeguards the privacy of all responses and publishes only aggregate-level data, ensuring that

no individual producer or operation can be identified.


The January Cattle report will be released on January 31, 2024. This and all NASS reports are

available online at http://www.nass.usda.gov/publications. For more information, call the NASS Southern

Regional Office at 800-253-4419.
