CALF CROP, 1960 July 22, 1960

CALF CROP UP 1 PERCENT

A calf crop of 41,646,000 head is expected for 1960 according to the Crop
Reporting Board. This number is 1 percent above the 1959 calf crop and 6 percent
above the 1949-58 average. The calf crop at this level will be the fourth largest
of record, exceeded by the calf crops in 1954, 1955, and 1956.

The larger calf crop this year is the result of a larger number of cows and
heifers on farms. Cows and heifers 2 years old and older January 1, 1960 totaled
48,594,000 head, up 3 percent from the 47,001,000 head on January 1, 1959, and
7 percent above the 10-year average.
The number of calves born and expected to be born in 1960 expressed as a
percentage of cows and heifers 2 years old and older January 1 this year is 86
percent compared with 87 percent in 1959 and 1949-58 average of 86 percent. 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, and may fluctuate from year to year due to variation in cow slaughter and
trends in breeding herd replacement.
NORTH CENTRAL STATES
The 16,798,000-head calf crop expected for the Nort rai tes is virtu-
ally the same as in 1959. The East North Central Stat ~e&"t 6,005, calves
compared with 6,052,000 head last year, and the West Centra ~ ta s show a
calf crop of 10,793,000 head, up 50,000 head from 195 "'
The expected 1960 calf crop for the North Centra Stata s 90 er ent of the
cows and heifers 2 years old and older January 1, 1 9 di p1 poinp om 1959.

SOUTHERN STATES J

In the South Atlantic States the 1960 calf crop at 3,373,000 head exceeds a
year earlier by 2 percent. In the South Central States the calf crop is expected
to total 11,206,000 head, 3 percent more than in 1959. In the South Atlantic
States the calf crop expressed as a percent of cows and heifers 2 years old and
older is 78 percent and in the South Central States, 83 percent. Both these per-
centages are the same as the average, but less than last year.

WESTERN STATES

An estimated calf crop of 7,360,000 head is expected in the 11 Western States,
2 percent more than the 1959 crop. This is the largest on record for this region,
exceeding the previous high crop in 1955 by 2 percent. The calf crop as percent of
cows and heifers 2 years old and over on January 1 at 85 is 3 percentage points
less than in 1959.
NORTH ATLANTIC STATES
The calf crop of 2,909,000 head for 1960 in the North Atlantic States compares
with 2,893,000 head a year earlier. The calf crop at 85 percent of cows and heifers
2 years old and older is the same percentage as in 1959.
