This week, the Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS) concluded its three-part webinar series on Livestock Mandatory Reporting for the pork industry.
During the three webinars, USDA and industry representatives provided an overview of LMR live hog and wholesale pork reporting, introduced other USDA resources applicable to the hog and pork industries, and explored how this information can inform real-world marketing decisions at the farm and other points in the supply chain.
If you are interested in these topics but were unable to join these events live, or if you would like to revisit the information provided, the webinar recordings and presentation materials are now available on the AMS website.
The webinars can also be found on the AMS YouTube channel.
The first in a three part series provided a history of USDA's Livestock Mandatory Reporting for the pork industry and introduces additional data/reports available through USDA, including the Swine Contract Library and the National Agricultural Statistics Service’s hogs and pigs reports.
