CALF CROP 2 PERCENT HIGHER
The 1970 calf crop for the United States is estimated at 45,955,000 head,
according to the Crop Reporting Board. This is 2 percent more than the 45,196,000
calves produced on U. S. farms and ranches in 1969.
Cows and heifers 2 years old and older on farms and ranches January 1, 1970
totaled 51,308,000 head, a 2 percent increase from the 50,379,000 head on hand a
year earlier.
Calves born and to be born during 1970 expressed as a percentage of cows
and heifers 2 years old and older on hand at the 'ficst.-of the- ye ar 90 percent,
the same as for 1969. This percentage is not s 4etly a calving rite because the
January 1 inventory of cows and heifers 2 ye rs did 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 REGION UP 2 PERCENT

Calves born and to be born in the North art Region'are expected to number
17,408,000 head, 2 percent more than a year earlier;. Larger calf crop is ex-
pected in the West North Central States, but the calf crop in the East North Central
States is expected to be about the same as a year earlier.

SOUTHERN CALF CROP 2 PERCENT LARGER
A calf crop of 17,529,000 head is estimated for 1970 in the Southern States.
This is 2 percent more than a year earlier. The South Atlantic and South Central
Regions are both expected to show a 2 percent increase. Texas, the leading calf
producing State, is also up 2 percent.

2 PERCENT MORE CALVES FOR WESTERN STATES

A calf crop of 8,581,000 head is estimated for the Western States -- 2 per-
cent more than was born in 1969. California, the leading calf producer in this
region, shows a 3 percent smaller calf crop. Montana and Colorado, the next
ranking States, are up 2 and 5 percent, respectively.

NORTH ATLANTIC STATES UNCHANGED
The number of calves born and to be born in the North Atlantic Region is the
same as last year, at 2,354,000 head. Slight declines in most North Atlantic States
offset the 2 percent increase in New York, the only State in the region showing an
increase.
