This Cattle Situation Report presents the cattle industry in terms of volume of production, inventory by region, and average farmgate prices.

It is released quarterly, that is, every February, May, August, and November.
Concepts and Definitions
Volume of production refers to the number of tended/raised cattle disposed for slaughter including animals shipped-out for slaughter. This is expressed in metric tons, liveweight.
Inventory refers to the actual number of cattle present in the farm as of a specific reference date.
Farmgate price refers to the price received by raisers for their produce at the location of farm. Thus, marketing costs, such as the transport and other marketing costs (if any) incurred in selling the produce, are not included in the farmgate prices. The 2020 to 2021 farmgate prices included in this special release were sourced from the Price Statistics Division (PSD), while the 2022 farmgate prices were based on the surveys of Livestock and Poultry Statistics Division (LPSD).
