Research and Markets: United States Agribusiness Report Q4 2014

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/m993dr/united_states) has announced the addition of the "United States Agribusiness Report Q4 2014" report to their offering.

Production growth in the grains sector will be excellent in 2013/14 owing to record yields.

However, farm incomes will be significantly lower given decreases in prices. That said, the grains sector looks relatively positive compared with livestock, where production will be flat in 2014. The pork sector is facing significant disease concerns from PEDv, while beef production will fall due to increased heifer retention. Fewer cattle facing slaughter will exacerbate record-high retail beef prices. The dairy sector is likely to see some improvement, but a record drought in California (the largest producing state) leads to strong downside production risks. Over the long term, the poultry sub-sector will remain the outperformer in the livestock complex, and we see the strongest production growth potential for soybeans among the grains complex. We believe grains production overall will stagnate due to a lower planted area on the back of lower prices.

Key Trends

Beef production growth to 2017/18: 4% to 11.8mn tonnes. We have again revised our beef production forecasts lower due to herd rebuilding in 2013, which is likely to lead to fewer cows available for slaughter. The length of the cattle cycle means we expect production to stagnate until the end of our forecast period.
