Last Modified: March 01, 2024

NAHMS conducted a beef cow-calf study in 2017 –18. This was the fourth NAHMS study on the U.S. cow-calf industry. 

The study involved producers in 24 States representing more than 70 percent of beef cows and beef cow operations in the United States. The study included two questionnaires that asked producers about the health and management of their cattle.

Beef 2017 Report 1 is based on the first study questionnaire administered. Beef 2017 Report 2 is based on the second questionnaire administered. NAHMS conducted additional beef cow-calf studies in 2007 –08, 1997, and 1993.
