Welcome to the Angus e-List

Angus Producers Are Encouraged To Complete 2002 Ag Census Report

Along with the usual holiday letters, bills and junk mail, farmers and ranchers will be receiving the 2002 Census of Agriculture report in the mail during December. The completed report is due February 3, 2003, and everyone who receives the form is required by law to return the form, even if they didn’t operate a farm or ranch in 2002.

This year marks the United States Department of Agriculture’s (USDA’s) National Agricultural Statistics Service’s 26th survey. The census report asks basic questions about land use and ownership, crop acreage and quantities harvested, livestock inventories and other farm-operating characteristics.

Although all information collected in the census is strictly confidential, the USDA will compile data to generate various reports about agricultural trends, and production information. The American Angus Association will use the data compiled by the census to gain perspective about cattle herd sizes and the number of Angus in herds located across the country. The information will be useful when preparing future advertising campaigns and developing further commercial-cattle programs.

For more information about the agricultural census, call 1-888-4AG-STAT.
