  1. 1. Sponsored by Vol. 11, No. 56 / March 25, 2013  USDA’a monthly Cattle On Feed report, re- USDA Cattle on Feed Report -- March 2013leased on Friday, will likely be viewed as bullish by the Thous. Hd. 2013 as pct. Of 2012trade this morning primarily due to a larger-than- Esti- Differ-expected decline in February placements. The key 2012 2013 Actual mate* encenational data from the report appear at right.

Headmand in particular certainly reduced the incentives to place cattle last 12500month. The total March 1 feedlot inventory of 10.857 million head, how-ever, represents the largest year-on-year decline yet seen in this cycle 12000that began back in September. The –7% figure for March 1 inventory isalso the largest year-on-year percentage decline since January 2009 11500and further solidifies our position that fed cattle supplies will tighten sig-nificantly in the second half or 2013. As can be seen at right, the March 110001, 2013 inventory was almost the smallest March 1 inventory of the past6 years, exceeding only the 2010 inventory of 10.849 million head. 10500 The average weight of cattle placed in February was 714.2pounds, nearly 9 pounds of 1.3% lower than one year ago. That aver- 10000age in-weight was tied for the third lowest for February in the currentCattle-On-Feed data series that dates back to 1996. Over time, Febru- 9500ary has marked the peak for placement weights during the year. The J F M A M J J A S O N D2007-2011 average for February is 722.5 pounds. USDA’s monthly Cold Storage report, also released on MEAT & POULTRY IN COLD STORAGEFriday afternoon, indicates continued large stocks of frozen meat Total, 4 Species Beef Chicken Pork Turkeyan poultry as of the end of February. Total meat and poultry in freez- Individual Species Total Meat & Poultryers on February 28 was 2.188 billion pounds, 5.7% higher than last yearand 2.6% higher than last month. And in spite of apparently soft de- 1200 2400mand for both beef and pork, neither of those species was the culprit inthe frozen meat/poultry stock increase. Data appear on page 3. t 1000 . 2000 t . That label would apply to the two poultry species with chicken W W C Cinventories exceeding last year by 6.1% and turkey stocks growing by T 800 R 1600 T R / /14.1% versus 2012. Of the 118.15 million pound total increase in fro- c r c r a azen meat and poultry inventories versus last year, chicken accounted C 600 , . 1200 C , .for 36.5 million and turkey accounted for 49.4 million — a total of 85.14 s s b b L Lmillion or 72% of the year-on-year total increase. The amount of chick- . l i 400 800 . l i M Men in freezers at the end of February was down 3.2% from January.Turkey inventories were up 10.8% versus January.

Pork inventories grew 5% during month and end-ed up at 637 million pounds, 2.3% higher than last year. Ribs remain about one-third lower than one year ago.the big driver (along with “Other” pork) of the year-on-year increase. Beef stocks were 1.2% higher than at the end of January andLet’s hope that warmer weather and barbecued rib features make a 4.1% higher than last year. Per normal, the big driver is boneless beefdent in this supply soon. Belly stocks grew during January but remain inventories since that category accounts for nearly 90% of the total.
