NASS Reinstates Several Reports

December 14, 2011 08:59 AM

Recently, USDA's National Agricultural Statistics Service announced it will reinstate several key agriculture reports, including the July Cattle report and other annual reports, that were on the chopping block in order to reduce costs.

The reinstated programs are:

  • Annual Reports on Farm Numbers, Land in Farms Reports and Farm Income
  • Catfish and Trout Reports (data collection begins Dec. 9; report released Dec. 20)
  • Annual Floriculture Report
  • January Sheep and Goat Report (data collection begins Dec. 23; report date is Jan. 27)
  • July Cattle Report
  • Annual Bee and Honey Report (data collection begins Jan. 23; report date is March 30)
  • Annual Hops Production Report (data collection begins Dec. 9; report date is Dec. 21)
  • Annual Mink Report
  • Fruit and Vegetable in season forecast and estimates
  • Rice Stocks June Report

These reports had been on the chopping block in order to cut costs. However, NASS says that changes in the agency's operations have made program cuts unnecessary.

NASS will publish Federal Register notices reflecting these program changes in the near future.
