Livestock, Poultry and Grain Market News
Since the passage of the Shepherd Amendment on August 11, 1916, Livestock, Poultry, and Grain Market News reports have provided an exchange of information among members of the agriculture marketplace and other interested parties on current supplies, demand and prices. The information is gathered through onsite observation, electronic data transfers, confidential telephone interviews, and face-to-face interviews carried out by skilled market reporters employed by the USDA or State agencies. Market News tracks and reports market information at various levels within the marketplace for domestic, regional, local, and international markets. These reports are disseminated free of charge through this internet web site. Market news also makes historical information available in a variety of formats.
