CattleFax Releases a Cow-Calf Survey

CattleFax has released its annual Cow-Calf Survey. The information requested in the survey provides participants and the rest of the industry with valuable data regarding industry benchmarks and trends.

To get a results packet, survey participants have to submit a valid email address. All individual results will be confidential and remain anonymous.
