  • COLUMN: Beef producers encouraged to keep records

    As we approach the end of another year, it's a good time for beef producers to think about changes to improve the bottom line in their farming operations. While excellent prices are projected, and will add to profitability, record keeping is important.

    It is important not only to keep good farm records, but it is also to study and utilize them. This will help you identify areas of needed improvements.

    Fraudulent letter directed to producers

    USDA has been made aware that there is a fraudulent letter circulating to producers and contractors. The signature line in these letters reads “Frank Rutenberg” and the sender claims to be a USDA employee seeking information about the recipient. These letters are a fraud, the sender is fictitious and recipients should not respond to these letters. Should you receive one of these fraudulent letters, notify the Farm Service Agency or a USDA Service Center representative.
