The estimating program for livestock measures several major categories of this sector: inventory numbers and value, breeding intentions, production, slaughter, feeding operations, and cold storage holdings.
As with the crops program, livestock, dairy, and poultry estimates are based largely on probability surveys. However, near-total counts are made for some items, such as slaughter, cold storage, hatching data, and specialty items. Data are collected through mail surveys as well as face-to-face and telephone interviews.
