Beef Price Reporting

The Vermont Agency of Agriculture, Food and Markets partners with the USDA - Agriculture Marketing Service’s (AMS) Market News Reports to gather monthly Vermont beef sales data.  All individual producer data remains anonymous and is aggregated into a monthly report on Vermont beef sales.  This report submitted to the USDA AMS Market News Reports, which is incorporated into regional and national beef reports.  It is also published on the VAAFM website. 

The VAAFM is now providing a $15 payment per monthly submission of this simple report capturing both carcass weight/price and retail sales.  All beef producers, regardless of sales outlet, are invited to participate.

Sales should be submitted by the 4th of the month following the sales month (eg. report due June 4th for sales for the month of May).  Payments will be sent to participating beef producers or processors after the close of the calendar year, following the receipt of a W-9 and invoice from the producer.
