Every five years the Department of Agriculture sends out a very detailed census form for farmers to prepare and send back. We have already discussed this form with several farmers and as usual it can be very hard to follow the paper form. We have found preparing the form online can save some time and frustration.
This is primarily due to the computer automatically taking you to the next part of form based on how you fill out each answer. This is not true in all cases, but based on our feedback, the online version seems to create less frustration.
This census does provide valuable information to the Department of Agriculture, and thus, should not be ignored.
