Pinpointing Policy: The Importance of USDA Reports
On Friday, Aug. 11, seven Farm Bureau members in Kansas entered the United States Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) South Building in Washington, D.C., to observe the August USDA "Lock Up" and release of the US Crop Production and World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates. These members were part of Kansas Farm Bureau’s 13th USDA Reports Trip, a roughly 50-hour excursion beginning in Kansas City, tracing how USDA collects crop data, and disseminates it into state, national and world reports. The goal of which is to provide an opportunity for members to see, study, question and better understand the data provided by USDA, through both National Agriculture Statistics Service (NASS) surveys and World Agricultural Outlook Board (WAOB) World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates (WASDEs).
