Where's the beef?: A shift to white meats will cut into growth, but demand will remain steady

Beef Cattle Production in the US

For decades, Americans' love of steaks and burgers maintained beef as the most consumed meat in the United States. However, in recent years, consumption of beef has declined due to the health risks associated with red meat. In the coming years, this trend is set to continue, as consumers purchase more lean, white meats, which will stifle growth in industry revenue.

This industry includes farms and ranches that primarily engage in raising cattle (including cattle for dairy herd replacements), or feeding cattle for fattening to prepare them for consumption. The industry also comprises cattle feedlot operations, which produce high-quality beef.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
