Event Dates: Mar 19 - Mar 25 2017
During National Ag Week we collectively celebrate the food, feed and fiber that U.S. farmers and ranchers provide every day. Agriculture now and in the future relies on accurate, timely and useful information. My agency is charged with gathering information from farmers, ranchers and others involved in agriculture. We ask for information on a wide variety of topics such as prices, farmland value and availability, sales, age and experience of producers, and where the food on MyPlate is raised. We in turn provide with great pride and gravity the critical public data that are necessary for making informed decisions in business, policy and research.
