Dairy Council Trade Mission; Census of Agriculture 2017

He tells Brownfield revised standards will open demand for more ethanol production and higher ethanol blends, which will increase the price of corn.

**The U.S. Dairy Export Council is wrapping up a week-long trade mission in Singapore and China.

Vilsack says the council’s goal is to expand overall dairy exports from 15% to 20%.

** “Make sure you are counted.”

That’s the message USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service is trying to get across to America’s farmers and ranchers as NASS prepares for the 2017 Census of Agriculture.
