  • USDA’s Animal and Plant Inspection Service has proposed a new rule to allow the importation of beef from a region in Argentina.

    The proposal has cause according to the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association President Bob McCan.

    “Northern Argentina is a region that is not recognized as being free of Foot-and-Mouth Disease by APHIS. We strongly believe that these recent actions by APHIS present a significant risk to the health and well-being of the nation’s cattle herd through the possible introduction of FMD virus.”

  • National Ag Statistics Service has released the 2012 Census of Agriculture American Indian Reservations report.

    This is the third agriculture census in which NASS has collected reservation-level data. The report covers 76 American Indian reservations in 16 states.

    NASS Administrator Joseph T. Reilly says, “The reservation-level data provide tribal leaders, government officials, farmers, agribusinesses and others with data to help make informed decisions and thoughtfully allocate resources.”

    The report continues the series of products NASS published following the May release of the Census of Ag results.
