Characteristics of beef cattle operations in the West

The Beef Industry Sustainability Assessment has been expanded to include data collection from the seven cattle producing regions across the country. This fact sheet provides results of the West Assessment, compiled through producer online surveys and visits to ranchers and feedyard operations in two of the seven cattle producing regions: the Northwest (Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Washington, and Wyoming) and the Southwest (Arizona, California, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico and Utah).
