CALF CROP UP 1 PERCENT

The 1968 calf crop for the United States is estimated at 44,102,000 head,
according to the Crop Reporting Board. This is 1 percent more than the 43,765,000
head born a year earlier.

The number of cows and heifers 2 years old and older on farms January 1, 1968
is estimatedat 50,049,000 head, slightly higher than the 49,883,000 head on farms
January 1, 1967.

The number of calves born during 1968 expressed as a percentage of cows and
heifers 2 years old and older on hand the first of the year is estimated at 88
percent, the same as a year earlier. This percentage is not strictly a calving
rate because the January 1 inventory of cows and heifers 2 years old and older
does not include all heifers that calve during the year and includes some cows
and heifers that died or were slaughtered before calving.

NORTH CENTRAL STATES

The calf crop in the North Central States totaled 17,035,000 head, slightly
below the 17,123,000 calves born a year earlier. The East North Central States
are down 2 percent while the West North Central States are up slightly.
SOUTHERN STATES UP 2 PERCENT

The 1968 calf crop in the Southern States is estimated at 16,398,000 head,
2 percent above 1967. The South Atlantic and South Central States are each up
2 percent from 1967. Texas, the leading cattle State, shows a 1 percent larger
calf crop.
WESTERN STATES UP 1 PERCENT

The calf crop in the 11 Western States at 8,244,000 head is up 1 percent
from the previous year. Colorado and Utah, each with 5 percent more calves born
than a year earlier, had the largest percentage increases.
NORTH ATLANTIC STATES DOWN 3 PERCENT

The number of calves born in the North Atlantic States declined 3 percent
to 2,349,000 head. Every State in this region shows smaller calf crop than a
year earlier.
