Census gives farmers a voice in their future


Print PageEmail PageShareGet Reprints

America's farmers and ranchers will soon have the opportunity to make their voices heard and help shape the future of agriculture for years to come. That opportunity will come to their mailboxes in the form of the 2007 Census of Agriculture.

Conducted every five years by the US Department of Agriculture, the census is a complete count of the nation's farms and ranches and the people who operate them . The census looks at land use and ownership, operator characteristics, production practices, income and expenditures and other topics. It provides the only source of uniform, comprehensive agricultural data for every county in the nation.

NASS will mail out census form on Dec. 28 to collect data from the 2007 calendar year. Completed forms are due by Feb. 4, 2008. Producers can return their forms by mail, or for the first time, they have the convenient option of filling out the census online via a secure web site.

For more information about the 2007 Census of Agriculture, contact the NASS Utah Field Office at 800-747-8522 or visit www.agcensus.usda.gov online.
