The population in the U.S. and in the world is going to continue to grow. If per capita beef consumption just stays the same as today as the population increases, then more total pounds of beef must be produced and processed.

Do you believe that total beef production will be increased enough in the U.S. to keep up with the population growth? If yes,

Where do you think beef production CAN be increased in the U.S.?

Where do you think beef production WILL be increased in the U.S.?

Do you believe that the U.S. beef industry should have a limit on the percentage of total U.S. beef produced that goes into world trade? If so, what do you think that percentage should be?

Thanks in advance!

US, nonimmigrant population growth is nearly flat, but we'll assume some population growth.

Hell yes


*Where do you think beef production CAN be increased in the U.S.?*

genetics, just like the last 30 years


*Where do you think beef production WILL be increased in the U.S.?*

from N Dakota to Texas, Nevada to Kentucky. the visible hand at work.

The limit should be set by the market

Irrelevant questions...the global economy is coming. The next big impact on the USA beef industry will be South American beef. At that time or shortly there after, USA live cattle will be trading at or near world market prices. If you can't turn a profit at world market prices...you're in trouble!
