On March 30, USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service will livestream the Secretary of Agriculture’s data report briefing for the first time. This and future Secretary data briefings will stream on NASS’s YouTube channel five minutes after NASS reports are released to the public. The Hogs and Pigs briefing will be live at 3:05 p.m. ET. The next livestream, on March 31, is the Prospective Plantings and Grain Stocks briefing at 12:05 p.m. ET. In April, NASS will livestream the Crop Production briefing. Crop Production briefings will also include presentations of data from the World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates report released by the Office of the Chief Economist’s World Agricultural Outlook Board. NASS recently recorded several Secretary briefings to give data users an idea of what to expect from livestreams, they are available on YouTube. Joe Parsons, chair of the Agricultural Statistics Board, says, “by livestreaming our briefings when major reports are released, we can provide information to a wider and more diverse audience than ever before.”
