NASS Survey Update!

In the first two weeks of June, NASS will gather information 
about this season's crop production, supplies of grain in 
storage, and livestock inventory. The information will help 
producers, suppliers, traders, buyers and others make informed 
business decisions. The results will be available on June 28 in 
the Hogs and Pigs report and on June 29 in the Acreage and Grain 
Stocks reports. Farmers should watch for their surveys and be 
sure to respond. Your information matters!
