USDA Enhances Livestock Mandatory Reporting Negotiated Cattle Reports.

Monday, July 1, 2019

(North American Meat Institute)

Beginning June 25, 2019, USDA's Agricultural Marketing Service will expand the purchase categories on Livestock Mandatory Reporting (LMR) negotiated cattle reports to include dressed FOB and live delivered information. All negotiated cattle reports will reflect the same format as the National Weekly Direct Slaughter Cattle - Negotiated Purchases report. This enhancement will provide more uniformity to LMR reports, and supply customers with additional market information. All LMR negotiated cattle reports will now include individual data lines for steer, heifer and mixed steer/heifer classes of cattle. The three classes will distinguish between FOB or delivered shipment, and live or dressed basis.
