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.

Important Notice

Starting on the afternoon of May 4, 2020, LMR will begin releasing report data on LMR Datamart, LMR Web Service and the LMR API in real time. Prior to this change, report data was available at the top of the hour for most reports. The removal of Text reports on LMR necessitated this change. This change will bring both voluntary and mandatory report release processes in sync.

Note: With this change, there will be a few minutes delay for the actual PDF report to be uploaded to the AMS website and My Market News. That will be resolved in the coming month.

The site currently contains only selected data from mandatory reports released after April 1, 2001 under the Livestock Mandatory Reporting Act of 1999 and Mandatory Price Reporting Act of 2010, authorizing the Dairy Product Mandatory Reporting Program (DPMRP). All AMS Market News voluntary reporting reports and data are available at My Market News. There are no restrictions on who may obtain this data or how it may be used.
