Content DescriptionReturn to Top

The compilation of Montana agricultural statistics has been shared by a variety of federal and state agencies over the years, but almost all efforts were overseen by the United States Department of Agriculture in one form or another. The press releases in this collection include those from agencies who were concerned primarily with crop and livestock production. The name of the issuing body and titles vary throughout, and as a result they were gathered by Montana State University library personnel in the order received. Some of the 'titles' are fairly consistent and could be gathered together as 'serials' but others although on the same general topics, have quite varying titles. There seem to be some related but distinctive separate serials that have been interfiled within this group; some of those are listed at the end of these notes but there could be others. PLEASE NOTE also that later issues (1982?+) of some of these titles have already been cataloged as serials from the later issuing body, Montana Agricultural Statistics Service.

Issuing Body Changes and Title: these are the major changes but there are other variations within each date.
