USDA gives cattle market update

2023 beef production raised

Based on the most recent U.S. Drought Monitor data, the impact of drought continues to be a theme into the new year even as rains bring relief to beef cattle producers in parts of the West. However, pasture and forage availability in the central and southern Plains likely remain tight as drought continues there. The impact can be seen in the hay stocks estimate released in the USDA National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) report. Hay stocks on Dec. 1, 2022, were 72 million tons, 9% below a year ago and the lowest for this period since 1954. This likely supports higher-than-expected cow slaughter in December, suggesting producers are still hampered by limited forage and higher associated costs. For the week ending Jan. 10, the U.S. Drought Monitor reported that over 69% of the U.S. is experiencing some level of drought, about 4% less than a year ago. According to the USDA World Agricultural Outlook Board, approximately 58% of the U.S. cattle herd is located in drought-stricken areas. This is an increase of 8 percentage points from a year ago.

Interpretive Summary: Effects of injectable vitamin E before or after transit on receiving phase growth performance, health, and blood parameters of beef steers

Interpretive Summary: Effects of injectable vitamin E before or after transit on receiving phase growth performance, health, and blood parameters of beef steers. Cattle are transported multiple times throughout their lifespan due to the geographic distribution of the United States beef industry. However, transportation can elicit a variety of stressors that jeopardize cattle growth performance and health. Lightweight feeder calves are at the greatest risk for stress-related morbidity and mortality during the feedlot receiving phase. This study evaluated the effects of injectable vitamin E (VE) before or after transit on feedlot receiving phase growth performance, health, and blood parameters of lightweight beef steers. Steers receiving an injection of VE before or after transit had increased serum α-tocopherol concentrations. However, treatment with VE did not improve growth performance and feed intake. Steers injected with VE before or after transit experienced a decrease in hair cortisol concentrations 14 d after transit while steers injected with VE after transit had improved antioxidant status 14 d after transit compared with control steers and those receiving VE before transit. These results indicate that an injection of VE around the time of transit had no effect on growth performance and intake but can improve antioxidant status during the receiving phase.
