I don't know which meat you are referring to but for beef production in USA see below.
In Oklahoma the cattle industry is a way of life and is the state's forerunner in agriculture. The cattle industry is the largest agricultural industry in Oklahoma. Cash receipts from the marketing of cattle in Oklahoma totaled $1,758,556,000 in 1995. This places Oklahoma fifth in the nation for cash receipts from the marketing of cattle. Oklahoma derives approximately $2.4 billion dollars of Gross State Product (GSP) from cattle production and processing. In addition, the Oklahoma cattle industry plays a huge role in the work force by providing around 105 thousand jobs. Oklahoma Ranks Fourth Nationally in Cattle and Calves
The Oklahoma cattle industry not only plays a major role in Oklahoma, but it also rises to the top nationally. As of January 1, 1997 Oklahoma had 5,400,000 total cattle and calves on feed. This number is good enough for fourth nationally. There are only three states ahead of us; Texas, Kansas and Nebraska. When comparing Oklahoma counties, Texas county tops the state in total cattle and calves with 310,000. Cimarron County ranks second with 140,000 cattle and calves and Caddo and Woods County is close behind with 130,000 cattle and calves.
The total inventory value of all cattle and calves in Oklahoma reaches $2.4 billion. As mentioned earlier the cattle industry is a way of life for many Oklahomans, so it stands to reason that 64,000 farms and ranches in Oklahoma have cattle on them. Only Texas and Missouri can say they have more farms of ranches with cattle.
Oklahoma accounts for 1,965,000 beef cows that have calved. This places Oklahoma third nationally and puts them behind only Texas and Missouri in total beef cows that have calved. There were 54,000 Oklahoma farms or ranches with beef cows in 1996, which also ranks us in a tie for third for farms or ranches with beef cows. Bryan County, in south central Oklahoma, ranks first in beef cows with 65,000 total head. Caddo County follows closely with 60,000 beef cows and Pittsburg County ranks third with 49,000 beef cows. It is estimated that Oklahoma has around 21 counties with at least 30,000 or more beef cows. Oklahoma Ranks High in Pedigreed Beef Cattle
Oklahoma has always stood strong because of the quality and quantity of cattle that have been raised in the state. The cattle in Oklahoma have been sought after not only in the United States, but throughout the world. Cattle producers in Oklahoma take pride in their cattle and they don't take it lightly when it comes time to breed their herd. Superior offspring come from superior parents. With the proper breeding, care and facilities producers can set themselves s apart in the industry. This is what Oklahoma has done. Out of the 25 different beef breed associations, Oklahoma ranks in the top five in 12 of them. Even though there are less purebred cattle when compared to the crossbred industry, purebreds are vitally important for the makeup of any cattle herd. Oklahoma ranks second in registrations for the following breed associations: Hereford, Limousin, Beefmaster, Brangus, Maine-Anjou, Texas Longhorn, Blonde d'Aquitaine, and Brahmousin. Oklahoma ranks third in Shorthorn registrations, fourth in Chianina and Salers, and fifth in Braunvieh. The purebred cattle producer sets the genetic standard for the cattle industry. Without the best performance traits in each individual purebred breed, we would not be able to produce a valuable high performance crossbred. Cash Receipts From the Marketing of Cattle (1995)
