Highlights will include facts about the aging farming population, new farmer characteristics, farm decision-making, value of production and more. The session will detail the role of NASS in producing official USDA statistics and how farmers, ranchers and other decision-makers use the data to inform advocacy and policy development. NASS will showcase the tools available for accessing Census and survey data and close the presentation with a question and answer session.
