Colorado Agriculture Commissioner Don Brown and NASDA’s Charlie Ingram participated in the NASS State Statisticians Workshop at the National Operations Center (NOC) in St. Louis, Missouri the week of September 22, 2015.
The workshop was designed for the 12 NASS Regional Field Office (RFO) Directors and State Statisticians on a range of crucial topics, including roles and responsibilities, technology, management, and communications. Colorado Agriculture Commissioner Don Brown gave an excellent endorsement and support for NASS data. He also provided an overview of the complexity that large farms and ranches have in completing NASS surveys.
