The National Organic Program (NOP) of the Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS) is pleased to announce that Market News is expanding its organic reporting, provide market trends in organic dairy, and share an blog from the National Farmers Union.
 Market News is Expanding its Reporting
USDA Market News is expanding its organic reporting and would like to work with certified organic livestock, poultry, egg, dairy, cotton, grain, and corresponding handling operations to develop new organic reports.
Every day, our reporters contact industry stakeholders at all levels of the supply chain to collect market information. We examine and interpret the data, then report prices, volumes, and market trends on hundreds of agricultural commodities. USDA Market News provides unbiased market information to the industry gathered from individuals, like you.
Over the next year, we will be reaching out to ask you to participate by sharing information about your business. We assure you that we respect your confidentiality. We welcome your assistance and ask that you join us in bringing valuable market information pertinent to your business back home to you.
If you are interested in becoming a confidential Market News contact, please call Randy Hammerstrom at (970) 353-9750 or email
