Welcome to the USDA Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS) Livestock, Poultry and Grain Market News (LPGMN) & Dairy Market News (DMN) website for historical mandatory reporting data and reports. New users are encouraged to click on the "Help" link to learn how to navigate the search screens.


Changes are coming to the LMR API May 30, 2022

In an effort to address extensive user feedback and be consistent in LMR reporting, all fields that are contained on LMR PDF reports will now be available in the LMR API and Web Service.
Previously, there were certain fields such as "Week Ago" or "Year Ago" that were on PDF reports but not consumable in the LMR API or Web Service. Effective May 30, 2022, those fields (and others) will be available.
The LMR Team strongly encourages users review the attached Excel file to identify what fields are being added to which report. The Excel file has each commodity broken up on an individual sheet with the fields being added. An image is provided to show the fields as they will appear.
If you have any questions, please email the LMR team @ The LMR API User Guide is here.

USDA Market News Mobile App

USDA's Agricultural Marketing Service announces the availability of the first ever USDA Market News Mobile App, providing instant access to current and historical market information. The initial version of the free app includes nearly 800 livestock, poultry, and grain market reports, with additional commodities added throughout the coming year.

The new app lets users share reports via text or email, subscribe to reports, add reports to their favorites, and receive real-time notifications on new report publications. Users are able to see markets from across the country, or users can search based off their location, by state, or by commodity.

Both iOS and Android versions will be free to the public. The iOS version is available at the Apple App Store, and the Android version is available at the Google Play Store.
