CALF CROP, 1962 July 20, 1962
CALF CROP UP 2 PERCENT
A calf crop of 40,542,000 head is expected for 1962, according to the Crop
Reporting Board. This is 2 percent larger than both the 1961 calf crop and the
1951-60 average; and the largest since 1956.
The larger calf crop this year is the result of more cows and heifers on farms.
Cows and heifers 2 years old and older January 1, 1962 totaled 47,326,000 head, up
2 percent from the 46,370,000 head on January 1, 1961.
The number of calves born and expected to be born this year expressed as a
percentage of cows and heifers 2 years old and older January 1 is 86 percent,
the same as both 1961 and the 10-year 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 per-
centage 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 CEI~TRAL STATES
In the East North Central region all States except Illinois show a smaller calf
crop for 1962 than in 1961. Ohio is down 2 percent and Indiana, Michigan and
Wisconsin are each 1 percent below a year earlier.
All States in the West North Central region expect larger calf crops this year.
Kansas, up 4 percent, shows the largest increase in this region, followed by
Missouri, up 3 percent and South Dakota and Nebraska each 2 percent higher. Iowa
and North Dakota expect calf crops 1 percent above last year, while Minnesota is up
slightly.
SOUTHERN STATES
In the South Atlantic region slightly larger calf crops are indicated in all
States except Maryland, down 2 percent and Delaware unchanged. The largest in-
creases are in Florida, up 5 percent end South Carolina, up 3 percent.
Every State in the South Central region expects a larger calf crop in 1962
except Louisiana which is unchanged. Texas, Oklahoma, and Kentucky, the largest
cattle States in this area, are up 2 percent, 6 percent, and 5 percent, respectively
WESTERN STATES
The 1962 calf crop in the Western States is expec btWTr er in 8 States,
smaller in Montana and Arizona, and unchanged in Ore g^New Me1" shows the big-
gest gain, increasing 5 percent while Colorado and vada are b3 percent.

crop.
