Census of Ag report forms due Feb. 2 The U.S. Dept. of Agriculture and the Minnesota Department of Agriculture remind farmers that the deadline for returning the 1997 Census of Agriculture report form is Feb. 2. Most forms have already been returned, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture's National Statistics Service, but some are still in farmers' hands. For those who have not completed their report form, estimates are acceptable if records are not available. Those not operating a farm who still received a Census of Agriculture form should return it so they will not be contacted again. All information collected in the Census of Agriculture is kept confidential by law. Any farmer thinking about not returning the form should know that producers are required by law to answer the census. Delay increases the cost of the census and postpones the release of the census findings, which are scheduled to be made available in the spring of 1999. For assistance in completing your census report form, you can call the National Agricultural Statistics Service's toll-free number at 1-888- 424-7828. Farmers who did not receive a census report form may also call this number to request a form. 00That's entertainment JOIN US FOR Dollar Days Now thru Saturday!- // f' East Hwy. 12 • Ortonvifle ¸::::;:.::::¸:::::::::::::;:::;::2:::::::::;:¸¸::::::::2¸::i:1:1:? ¸ :: ::: 5/::¸ Tues., Feb. 3 Grilled Pork Chop Supper 6:OO-9:OO P.M.
