2017 Ag Census a Chance to Count New Farms and Farmers

Apr 18, 2017
WASHINGTON, DC -- Conducted every five years by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS), the Census of Agriculture is designed to be a complete count of all U.S. farms, ranches, and those who operate them.  For those that have participated in the census in the past, a survey will be mailed to you by the end of the year or can be completed online.  

For producers who are new to farming or did not receive the Census of Agriculture in 2012, there is still time to sign up to participate in the 2017 Census of Agriculture.  Sign-up is open until June 30, 2017, and more information can be found here.
