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 MyMarketNews. That will be resolved in the coming month.

Recent security patching of LMR servers on 04.16.20 has caused technical problems with Text Report generation. PDF report generation remains operational. Over the course of the last few days, an attempt to resolve this issue was undertaken without success. The security protocols have been re-enabled on the LMR server and text reports will no longer be offered.


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.
