The United States Department of Agriculture is saying that there has been an overwhelmingly positive response to the Census of agriculture that was distributed to farmers and ranchers approximately one month ago.
They are saying that 25% of the questionnaires have already been returned, and they are doing their best to deal with all the questions have arisen.
The questionnaires are due to be completed by February 4, and may be submitted either online or by regular mail.
It will be interesting to see how the USDA uses this information, and whether the final basis of assessment is one of real benefit to those who work in agriculture.
