The mink program consists of two surveys: An annual census of all known mink producers in the 50 states (the Mink Survey) and an annual survey of two prominent mink pelt auction houses (the Mink Price Survey). Statistics on mink production are published for the 12 major states that account for over 90 percent of the total U.S. pelt production. There is no other source for this type of information. General authority for these data collection activities is granted under U.S. Code Title 7, Section 2204. Need and Use of the Information: NASS collects information on mink pelts produced by color, number of females bred to produce kits the following year, number of mink farms, average marketing price, and the value of pelts produced. The data is disseminated by NASS in the Mink Report and is used by the U.S. government and other groups. Description of Respondents: Farms. Number of Respondents: 352. Frequency of Responses: Reporting: Annually. Total Burden Hours: 87. National Agricultural Statistics Service Title: Cost of Pollination Survey. OMB Control Number: 0535–0258. Summary of Collection: The primary objectives of the National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) are to prepare and issue official State and national estimates of crop and livestock production, disposition and prices, economic statistics, and environmental statistics related to agriculture and to conduct the Census of Agriculture and its follow-on surveys. Pollinators PO 00000 Frm 00001 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 (honeybees) are vital to the agricultural industry for producing food for the world’s population.

By publishing both regional and crop specific pollination costs, both, crop farmers and beekeepers will be able to benefit from this additional data. Description of Respondents: Farmers. Number of Respondents: 18,000. Frequency of Responses: Reporting: Once a year. Total Burden Hours: 5,340. Ruth Brown, Departmental Information Collection Clearance Officer.
