Sheep & Goat Survey

The U.S. Department of Agriculture's National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) is gearing up for the Sheep and Goat Inventory Survey. Conducted each year in January and July, this survey provides critical inventory and production information for all states and the nation.

"During the first two weeks in January, producers will be contacted to participate in the Sheep and Goat Inventory Survey." said Carol House, NASS deputy administrator. "This survey will provide the latest information on conditions and trends in the U.S. sheep and goat industry for 2010."

When contacted by a NASS field office representative, producers will be asked to provide information on the number of breeding and market sheep and goats, lambs and kids born during the previous year, as well as mohair production, wool production and prices. For convenience, producers will have the option of responding to the survey by telephone, mail, during a personal interview or online.

Results will be published in the Sheep and Goats report, scheduled for release Jan. 29, 2010.

Welcome!

Howdy all of you high tech range livestock producers in Mendocino & Lake Counties!

This starts a new era for me in communication - the use of a BLOG.

The purpose of this BLOG is to offer short educational pieces of information to range livestock producers and managers and allow for comments back. The goal is to produce about ten of these per year. I hope you'll find them useful and further hope your questions and comments will generate ideas for this on-line community.
