The International Farm Comparison Network (IFCN), Beef Section is a co-operative research project among countries with an interest in beef production. IFCN is developing a common methodology for reliable comparison of farming systems within a global perspective. Innovative methodologies including 'typical farms' and 'spreadsheet based computer modelling' are allowing the integration of a historical database that allows for diagnostics and projections of beef trends across the world. This paper summarises the results for the countries participating in developing the IFCN database for the year 2003. FAPRI projections and IFCN outlook closes the paper.
