Market Outlook

ERS contributes to both short- and long-term cattle and beef market outlook activities through several venues. Working with USDA's Agricultural Marketing Service, Farm Service Agency, and Foreign Agricultural Service, ERS analysts develop the monthly estimates of beef supply, use, and prices that are reported in World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates (WASDE), released by the World Agricultural Outlook Board.

Monthly and quarterly cattle and beef industry data and cattle market outlook are also provided in Livestock, Dairy, and Poultry Outlook, which is released monthly by ERS.

USDA's Agricultural Baseline Projections provide a longrun cattle and beef market outlook.
