1 could expect usa non fed cattle harvest in 2015 to be down

say 10 to 20% from the 2012 ( 6.445 million cows ), 2013 ( 6.2 million cows ) levels.

 

 

2 reasons:   

1. there's less cows available now

2. be a few more older cows going back to the country to calf another round or 2.

Does the 6.2 million include dairy? Dairy prices lower could see harder culling? Might add some cows to the kill sheets.

Re: Yes dairy is in r3020 ( my numbers are ALL cull cows ),

i figure bout 100,000 extra dairy cows to be culled in 2015.

 

keep in mind they added 100,000 cows to the milk herd 2014.
