Regionally, the data indicates average herd reductions are evenly distributed, as shown in the graphic. Differences exist in the way the herds will be reduced.

•In Regions 1 and 4, most respondents indicated they would move their breeding females to a drylot or feedyard on a temporary basis.

•In Region 5, most respondents indicated they would take cattle to livestock markets for immediate sale and are least likely to move cattle out of state.

Regional differences also existed regarding future plans for cattle.

•Twice as many Region 1 respondents indicated they planned to increase their herd size in 2012 as in Region 5.

•Further reflecting the wealth of forage and agriculture options in Region 1, this group also had the highest percentage of members who indicated they would diversify their operations and temporarily decrease their herd size in 2012 to take advantage of other commodity programs.

Editor’s note: Wilson County is included in Region 4.
