WASHINGTON – A new report on trends in the grass-fed beef market is now available to industry stakeholders, according to the US Department of Agriculture's Agricultural Marketing Service. USDA developed the National Monthly Grass Fed Beef Report in response to requests from the industry.

The report includes market commentary and three sections of data: prices paid for live cattle; wholesale beef prices and direct-market beef prices.

“This monthly report will bring market clarity and exposure to assist the grass-fed industry in marketing their products,” said AMS Administrator Anne Alonzo. “This report will fill a significant data gap for the industry and increase transparency in the marketplace for all participants.”

USDA said the report will expand as the number of market reporting participants grows. Future reports may include trade volume data supported by graphs and other visual elements.
