Farmers and ranchers in Colorado still have time to be counted in the 2017 Census of Agriculture.

Bill Meyer with the U.S. Department of Agriculture's (USDA) National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) says athough the first deadline has just passed, NASS will continue to accept Census information through the spring.

The data will affect every operation and every farming community at some point, whether it be through farm policy, disaster relief, insurance or loan programs, infrastructure improvements, or agribusiness setup. There is accuracy and strength in numbers, which is why NASS is committed to giving producers every opportunity to respond."
