Market News Services Reduced

Due to the lapse in federal government funding related to the ongoing debate taking place on Capitol Hill, the U.S. Department of Agriculture has announced that it is temporarily reducing the services provided by its market reporting offices.

That means the usual grain, livestock, and hay market radio (audio) reports that typically are produced by the Agricultural Marketing Service branch of USDA will not be available until Congress restores funding.
