Sid Miller Urges Farmers & Ranchers To Respond To Census
Texas Agricultural Commissioner Sid Miller is out urging farmers and ranchers in Texas to respond to the 2022 Census for Agriculture. According to KAMC the deadline to respond is on Monday.
The questionnaires were sent out in January by the USDA’s National Agricultural Statistical Service to every agricultural producer in the US as well as those in Puerto Rico. The census is conducted every five years and is meant to provide an account of the nation’s farms and ranches and the people who operate them. According to Miller, the information will be key in shaping agriculture policy, programs, and disaster response.
“I want to remind all Texas farmers and ranchers that the 2022 Ag Census is a crucial chance to speak up for all agricultural producers in our great state,” sad Miller, “The information you provide will be our voice in Washington for the next five years, impacting Washington policy, programs, and even disaster resources. I urge all Texan ag producers to fill out the 2022 census before Monday’s deadline.”

The current census is taking place at a time when lawmakers will be working on the 2023 Farm Bill which is very important to our area.
