In early July, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) simplified access to historic data by putting 77 years’ worth of agricultural statistics online. In the past, this information, published in the annual bulletin Agricultural Statistics, was available in print form only.
In recognition of the U.S. Department of Agriculture's 150th Anniversary, the National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) launched an online historical timeline at www.nass.usda.gov. The history provides important information about the advancement of agricultural statistics as well as the background of NASS itself. Agricultural statistics in the United States is documented in NASS's timeline as far back as President George Washington. As an early compiler of U.S. agricultural information, Washington corresponded with land holders asking for information on farmland prices, commodity prices and crop yields.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) will not publish the United States and Canadian Cattle report scheduled for 3:00 p.m. August 22, 2013. Due to reduced funding caused by sequestration, NASS did not collect nor publish the July Cattle inventory data. Those estimates are therefore not available for inclusion in the joint 2013 United States and Canadian Cattle report, which is normally produced annually in cooperation with Statistics Canada. The next joint release of cattle estimates for the United States and Canada is scheduled for February 2014 (The February report also includes sheep.).
The National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) will publish its 2012 county estimates for small grains on December 13.

These county level acreage and production estimates help administer state and federal programs. The resulting data will be released online within the Quick Stats database only, http://quickstats.nass.usda.gov/
