USDA Introduces Cattle Dashboard


The Agriculture Department’s Agricultural Marketing Service introduced an enhanced system of electronic reporting for cattle pricing last month, as mandated by the 2008 farm bill. AMS developed the “Cattle Dashboard” to add an improved user interface, including tools for data visualization, to its primary Internet-based portal. The Cattle Dashboard feature is available on the AMS website, by clicking here.

The Cattle Dashboard allows users to see weekly volume and price information presented in graphs and tables that can be customized for viewing and downloaded for use in reports and presentations. It provides a user-friendly format that can be readily understood by producers, packers and other market participants.

The Cattle Dashboard concept will be expanded to other species as resources allow.
