CALF CROP, 1959 February 19, L960

CALF CROP UP 2 PERCENT

The 1959 calf crop totaled 41, 046, 000 head, 2 percent larger than the 1958
calf crop of 40, 409, 000 head, according to the Crop Reporting Board. The in-
crease shown for 1959 reversed the down trend of the previous 4 years. The 1959
calf crop was 4 percent below the record-high 1954 crop of 42, 601, 000 calves,
but was 7 percent above the 1948-57 average. All regionsexcept the North Atlan-
tic and East North Central show larger calf crops in 1959.

The larger calf crop during the past year was due primarily to the larger
number of cows and heifers on farms. The number of cows and heifers 2 years
old and older January 1, 1959 amounted to 47, 001, 000 head, compared with
46, 520, 000 head January 1 a year earlier, and by January 1, 1960 had increased
to 48, 594, 000 head.
The number of calves born in 1959, expressed as a percent of the cows and
heifers 2 years old and older January 1, 1959, at 87 percent was the same as 1958.
This percentage is not strictly a calving rate, since the January 1 inventory of
cows and heifers 2 years old and older does not include all heifers which give
birth to calves during the year and includes some cows that die or are slaughtered
before calving. This percentage is calculated to show trend in productivity over
a period of time. It may fluctuate from year to year due to variation in cow
slaughter and trends in breeding herd replacement.
NORTH CENTRAL STATES
The 1959 calf crop totaled 16, 795, 000 head in the North Central States, up
1 percent from 1958 and 2 percent larger than the 10-year average. The East
North Central States had a 2 percent smaller calf crop while the MAt North Cen-
tral States, with nearly two-thirds of the North Central total ha di 2 percent
larger calf crop.
The 1959 calf crop for the North Central Region w l percent the cows
and heifers 2 years old and older the first of the year, t sane Ain 1958.

SOUTHERN STATES
In the South Central States the 1959 calf crop at 10, 847, 000 head exceeded
a year earlier by 3 percent and in the South Atlantic States the calf crop totaled
3, 320, 000 head, I percent larger than in 1958. The calf crop as a percent of cows
and heifers 2 years old and older was 85 percent in the South Central States, and
in the South Atlantic States, 79 percent--both up 1 point from 1958.
WESTERN STATES
The calf crop in the 11 Western States at 7, 191, 000 head, was 3 percent
larger than in 1958. All States in this region showed larger calf crops in 1959.
The calf crop as a percent of cows 2 years old and older was 88 percent, unchang-
ed from a year earlier.
NORTH ATLANTIC STATES
The calf crop of 2, 893, 000 head for 1959 in the North Atlantic States com-
pares with 2, 910, 000 head a year earlier. The calf crop was 85 percent of cows
