CALF CROP 1961

February 20, 1962


CALF CROP 1 PERCENT HIGHER
The 1961 calf crop totaled 39,911,000 head--i percent more than the
39,353,000 calves born in 1960, and 1 percent more than the 1950-59 average. The
calf crop in 1961 was the largest since 1957, and the third consecutive year of
increase.

The larger calf crop in 1961 compared with the previous year was due primarily
to the larger number of cows and heifers on farms. There were 46,370,000 head of
cows and heifers 2 years old and older January 1, 1961, compared with 45,871,000
head January 1, 1960. By January 1, 1962 the number had increased to 47,326,000
head.
The number of calves born in 1961 expressed as a percent of the cows and
heifers 2 years old and older January 1, 1961 was 86 percent,the same as 1960 and
the 1950-59 average. 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 vari-
ation in cow slaughter and trends in breeding herd replacement.

NORTH CENTRAL STATES
The majority of the States in this region had larger calf crops in 1961 than
in the previous year. Kansas with a 6 percent greater calf crop showedthelargest
increase inthis region. Other increases were North Dakota up 4 percent; Minnesota,
Missouri and South Dakota up 2 percent respectively; and Indiana and Iowa each 1
percent higher and Nebraska up slightly. Illinois, Michigan and Wisconsin were
unchanged from 1960 and Ohio was down 1 percent.
SOUTHERN STATES
In the South Atlantic Region, 5 States had larger 1961 calfcrops, 2 were
lover and 1 was unchanged. Florida and Virginia up 2 percent and WMryland up 3
percent showed the largest increases.
In the South Central Region all States except Alabama, Mississippi and
Arkansas had larger calf crops in 1961. Texas and Oklahoma, the largest cattle
States in this area, were up 1 percent and 4 percent respectively.
WESTERN STATES
In 1961, all Western States, except Wyoming, Utah and California, had larger
calf crops compared with 1960. Arizona and Washington both showed 7 percent more
calves born, the largest increasesin this region. The 1961 calf crop in California
was 1 percent smaller than the previous year.
NORTH ATLANTIC STATES
New York, the major cattle State in this area, had a 1 percent smaller calf
crop in 1961, but Pennsylvania and Vermont, the next largest cattle States, had
larger calf crops compared with 1960.
