Cattle numbers for the national beef herd were released in January and the report revealed that we have the most cows in the U.S. since 2009.

“We’re going to have record beef production. The most beef production in a year ever. We’re going to have record meat production. If we put together beef, pork, chicken, turkey, all of it together, we’re going to produce over one hundred billion pounds of meat. And that’s a lot of meat.”

Anderson says the beef industry is hoping consumers buy more.
