Farmers across the country will soon be receiving forms for the 2017 Census of Agriculture. The Department of Agriculture’s National Ag Statistics Service says farmers and ranchers should start seeing those forms in about seven weeks. Conducted once every five years, the census of agriculture is a complete count of all U.S. farms, ranches, and those who operate them. And Agricultural Statistics Board Chair Joe Parsons says there will be several new questions on the 2017 AgCensus.
