"The January Cattle Survey provides Idaho producers the opportunity to serve as the frontline source of data on cattle" said Bill Meyer, director of the Idaho Field Office of USDA's National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS). "In Idaho, we'll be contacting about 1,200 operations in order to measure trends in beef and dairy cattle inventories, calf crop and cattle operations."

Producers selected for the survey will have the option of responding via telephone, mail, Internet, or personal interview with a local NASS representative.

"However producers choose to respond, they are providing an important service to the cattle industry and to U.S. agriculture as a whole," Meyer said. "Their responses will be compiled with those of their fellow producers nationwide, providing the only accurate and comprehensive estimate of the state of U.S. cattle production."
