Contact: Elaine J. Lidholm, 804.786.7686
Farmers rely on market report information to make well informed decisions. Although reports from USDA offices are unavailable due to the federal government shutdown, the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services continues to publish Virginia livestock, grain and vegetable market reports through its Virginia Market News Service. The reports include information on market conditions and prices and are available on the Market News website at www.vdacs.virginia.gov/marketnews and the Market News Hotline at 800.552.5521.
The reports also appear in print publications and as radio broadcasts. As an additional service, Virginia Market News is providing links on its website to market reports from Kentucky, Missouri, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and West Virginia.
