New USDA Livestock Auction Dashboard Brings Data to Life

July 10, 2023

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) today launched a new data visualization tool, the Livestock Auction Dashboard, providing users the ability to view and access livestock auction market information in a manner that is simple to use and understand. Market information for cattle, sheep, and goats will be available in a variety of visual formats in the new dashboard. For example, filters can be applied to allow users to see information from different markets and commodities throughout different timeframes. In addition to current reports, users can easily compare and analyze five years of historical data.

The dashboard includes data already published through the MyMarketNews platform; however, it offers the new benefits of dynamic visualization and easier analysis. For example, dashboard users will have the ability to filter data by properties, including date, state, market type, report title, and Slug ID (a four-digit number unique to each report) allowing information displayed to be customized to individual needs.

If you have questions about the new dashboard, please contact Michael Sheats, Director of the Livestock, Poultry, and Grain Market News Division, at 202-690-3145 or
