USDA to survey Oklahoma sheep, goat producers


The U.S. Department of Agriculture's National Agricultural Statistics Service is calling on nearly 5,000 sheep and goat producers nationwide to collect the latest data on sheep and goat inventory and production. Conducted in July, the Sheep and Goat Inventory Survey provides crucial information for Oklahoma and the Nation.

"During the first two weeks in July, producers in Oklahoma will be contacted to participate in the survey," said Wilbert Hundl, Director of the NASS Oklahoma Field Office.

"Timely and accurate data on sheep and goat inventory and production allow USDA and the industry to be more responsive to the American and international public, increase consumer understanding and awareness, and establish an appreciation for the benefits of U.S. sheep and goats and their products," added Hundl.

When contacted by NASS Oklahoma Field Office, producers will be asked to provide information on the number of breeding and market sheep and goats, and the numbers of lambs and kids born during the year. For convenience, selected producers will have the option of responding to the Sheep and Goat Inventory Survey by telephone, mail, during a personal interview, or online.

"As is the case with all NASS surveys, information provided by respondents is confidential by law," noted Hundl. NASS safeguards the privacy of all survey responses and publishes only State- and National-level data, ensuring that no individual operation or producer can be identified.

Survey results will be published in the Sheep and Goats report, scheduled for release on July 24. This and all NASS reports are available online at: www.nass.usda.gov.
