Cattle and calves
The total number of cattle and calves in Illinois on Jan. 1 was 1.1 million head, 6 percent below last year’s total. This is the lowest cattle inventory on record for Illinois.
Beef cow inventory was down 10 percent from 2010 to 352,000, while milk cows were down 3 percent to 98,000. This information is based on a recent cattle survey conducted by the Illinois office of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s National Agricultural Statistics Service.
