United States Cattle on Feed up One Percent

   

The latest USDA Cattle on Feed report was released Friday afternoon, August 17, 2012, showing very little variation from the pre-report estimates to the actual USDA numbers. August On-Feed came in at 101 percent of year ago levels with 10.656 million head of cattle, the largest On Feed number in the past six years.
Placements came in at 90 percent of year ago levels, a little lower than estimates. Placements equaled 1.922 million head of cattle.
Marketings came in at 100 percent of year ago levels, slightly lower than the trade was looking for.
Overall, the report is looked on as neutral as far as the markets are concerned.
