Over the years some confusion surrounding the National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) Dairy Products Prices (DPP) program and the use of these data in the class price formulas. Why are NASS’s DPP reports used in the Agricultural Marketing Service’s (AMS) class price formulas? How are the NASS reports compiled? Is there a magic formula used to generate the NASS DPP reports? What prevents manufacturing plants from misreporting or manipulating the prices?
Flies do have an economic impact for dairy producers. House flies and Stable flies are primary pests of confined animals followed by the horn fly for producers who pasture their animals. Horn flies are serious pests but the larvae cannot tolerate the manure being disturbed hence in confined operations they are not as serious a pest.

During the week ended November 28, 839 grain barges unloaded in New Orleans which was 7.5% lower than the previous week, according to USDA's Dec. 5 weekly Grain Transportation report. However, there were 43 ocean-going grain vessels loaded in the Gulf, up 5% from the same period last year. Within the next 10 days, 78 vessels are expected to load, which is 47% higher than the same time last year. During the week ending November 30, a total of 904,552 tons of grain moved on barges, the highest weekly volume for this year and 3.2% higher than the prior week. As the winter season approaches, volume will more than likely slow as the Twin Cities corridor has closed until spring and the Army Corps of Engineers has scheduled winter lock closures for repairs and river improvements on the Mississippi River.
