The Census of Agriculture is a complete count of all U.S. farms, ranches, and those who operate them. It is conducted every five years by the USDA National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS). The Census of Agriculture highlights land use and ownership, operator characteristics, production practices, income and expenditures, and other topics. The census will be mailed at the end of this year. Producers who are new to farming or did not receive a Census of Agriculture in 2012 still have time to sign up to receive the 2017 Census of Agriculture report form by visiting www.agcensus.usda.gov and clicking on the ‘Make Sure You Are Counted’ button through June. NASS defines a farm as any place from which $1,000 or more of agricultural products were produced and sold, or normally would have been sold, during the census year.
