Both Livestock, Poultry, and Grain Market News (LPGMN) and Dairy Market News (DMN) offer a web service that allows unrestricted public access to aggregated data sets for Livestock Mandatory Reporting (LMR) data and Dairy Mandatory Price Reporting (DMPR) Programs.

For instructions on how to use this web service, please see the LMR Web Service Client User Guide.

By modifying the URL examples in this user guide, users are able import data into Microsoft Excel or any other application that can consume XML data. In the future, the AMS team will be introducing an Application Programming Interface (API) that will support JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) file formats, which can be consumed by all types of applications in a multitude of ways.

All the information available through this Web site was published and released by the USDA Market News Service. The site currently contains only selected data from reports released after April 1, 2001 under the Livestock Mandatory Reporting Act of 1999. There are no restrictions on who may obtain this data or how it may be used except that, if the data is re published and identified as USDA data, it cannot be altered in any way.
