Beef Cattle Production in the US

While Americans are reducing red meat consumption and shifting to alternative sources of protein, such as poultry and eggs, industry demand will remain steady. Consumers reduced the quantity and quality of their beef purchases during the recession, but beef will continue to be a staple product for households in the next five years. High feed costs have significantly cut into industry profit, but these costs will decrease through 2018, aiding margins.

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.
