Each year in January and July, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) conducts a Sheep & Goat Inventory Survey.
During the first two weeks of January, producers will be contacted to participate in the Sheep & Goat Inventory Survey. The survey will provide the latest information on conditions and trends in the U.S. sheep & goat industry for 2010.
For convenience, producers have the option of responding to the survey by telephone, mail, during a personal interview, or online.
Results of the survey will be published for release on January 29, 2010.
