Cattle Contracts Library Pilot Program Listening Session

The Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2022 directed USDA’s Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS) to create a Cattle Contracts Library Pilot Program to increase market transparency for cattle producers.

AMS hosted a cattle industry listening session to inform the development of the Cattle Contracts Library on April 21, 2022.  The link to the webinar recording of the session is posted below. Please note that AMS will accept written feedback through April 28, 2022.  All written feedback will also be posted on this webpage when complete.

AMS is specifically interested in insights on:

  • What information should a Cattle Contracts Library include to be most helpful to cattle marketers?
  • What concerns do you have with USDA releasing a Cattle Contracts Library?
  • What format should be used to present the information contained in a Cattle Contracts Library?
