USDA extends deadline for annual P&S Act filings

The USDA has extended annual report filings under the Packers and Stockyards program to July 15th, in-line with actions taken under other parts of the federal government as the spread of COVID-19 continues to impact daily life across America.

To ensure farmers and ranchers are federally protected, all livestock dealers, live poultry sellers, meat packers, and market agencies are required to file annual reports under the Packers and Stockyards Act of 1921.

For further information, contact Stuart Frank in the USDA’s Packers and Stockyards Division at (515) 323-2586 or stuart.frank@usda.gov .
