On FAOSTAT for Crops and Livestock Products (FAOSTAT), use the following criteria:
Countries & Regions = United States of America, World (Total)
Items = Live Animals (Cattle), Livestock primary (Meat, Cattle)
Elements = Stocks, Production Quantity
Years = 2019
U.S. beef production= 12,348,749 tonnes vs. global beef production= 68,313,894 tonnes. Therefore, U.S. beef production would be 18% of global beef production.
U.S. cattle stocks= 94,804,700 head vs. World cattle stocks= 1,511,021,075 cattle. Therefore, the U.S. would have ~6% of the world’s total cattle.
