Abstract
An analysis is conducted to determine if USDA forecasts of beef and pork production and supply have improved over time (1982-96). Beef production and supply forecasts have improved during the study period, but pork has not. The results are consistent with findings that the variability in beef prices has decreased, but the variability in pork prices has not.
