Statistics help us tell agriculture's story

JAMES R. COMER
Agriculture Commissioner

Kentucky Department of Agriculture staff and Kentucky commodity group leaders recently met with David Knopf, regional manager for USDA's National Agricultural Statistics Service. NASS collects all manner of statistical data for Kentucky and U.S. agriculture – numbers and sizes of farms, average age of farmers, value of crops and livestock, farm cash receipts, and much more.
