Livestock, Dairy, and Poultry Outlook

The Livestock, Dairy, and Poultry Outlook for October 2015 analyzes economic impacts of events based on projections from USDA's World Agricultural Supply and Use Estimates report for beef, pork, lamb, poultry, eggs, and dairy production and trade. Errata: On October 26, annual 2015 prices for feeder steers, cutter cows, and choice slaughter lambs were corrected to reflect averages of quarterly actual and forecast prices, instead of ranges.

Errata: On October 23, 2015, the final third quarter market-price estimates for lamb and cutter cows in U.S. red meat and poultry forecasts were corrected to show a single price instead of a range. The cutter cow range was slightly overestimated, and the final market price is $103.34/cwt. Choice slaughter lamb final price was within the range originally posted, with a final market price of $146.23/cwt.
