USDA conducting surveys in June

ST. PAUL — During the next several weeks, U.S. Department of Agriculture’s National Agricultural Statistics Service will conduct two major mid-year surveys, the June Agricultural Survey and the June Area Survey.

The agency will contact nearly 4,500 producers in Minnesota and Iowa to determine crop acreage and stock levels as of June 1.

Dan Loftus, director of the NASS Minnesota field office, said growers will be asked about their planted and harvested acreage — including acreage for biotech crops — and grain stocks, livestock inventory, cash rents, land values, and value of sales.

The survey results are used by farmers and ranchers, USDA, businesses, exporters, researchers, economists and policymakers.

Surveys are conducted via the internet, mail, phone or in-person interview. NASS will analyze the survey information and publish the results in a series of USDA reports later in the month.

Control spread of Eastern red cedar

PETERSON, Iowa — A workshop and tour about the control and propagation of Easter red cedar trees will be held June 26 near Peterson.

Eastern red cedar is native to much of the U.S. and offers protection and food for wildlife. However, landowners much watch for and control saplings growing in unwanted places.

The trees spread into pastures and other landscapes because birds and other animals eat and spread the berries. If the wild seedlings are not controlled they can take over open areas and pastures changing the intended use of the property.

The workshop will be from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Prairie Heritage Center, 4931 Yellow Ave., Peterson, Iowa. There will be a tour of red cedar sites in the morning and different management controls and needs will be shown in the afternoon.

Registration is $25 and includes lunch, or $30 after June 21. Register online at
