Special Report

States Producing the Most Meat

Methodology:

To identify the states producing the most meat, 24/7 Wall St. reviewed annual production of beef, pork, and poultry by weight in each state from the United States Department of Agriculture. Beef and pork figures came from the USDA report, “Meat Animals Production, Disposition, and Income 2016 Summary,” and poultry figures came from the USDA report, “Poultry – Production and Value 2016 Summary.” Annual meat sales also came from these reports.
