Census of Agriculture deadline May 31

LINCOLN - Producers who have not yet completed their Census of Agriculture forms are reminded to get those returned before the end of the month.  Chris Messer with USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service says the main collection ends in February, but many producers did not have their 2012 Income Taxes complete by then.  A postcard reminder will be sent to those who have not returned their forms, and follow-up phone calls will be made. Forms can be found on line at agcensus.usda.gov.   Messer says those with questions are encouraged to call USDA’s customer service line at (888) 428-7828.
