PO 00000 Frm 00001 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) Title: Agricultural Surveys Program— January Sheep Survey—Substantive Change. OMB Control Number: 0535–0213. Summary of Collection: General authority for these data collection activities is granted under U.S. Code Title 7, Section 2204 which specifies that ‘‘The Secretary of Agriculture shall procure and preserve all information concerning agriculture which he can obtain . . . by the collection of statistics . . .’’. The primary objective of the National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) is to provide data users with timely and reliable agricultural production and economic statistics, as well as environmental and specialty agricultural related statistics. To accomplish this objective, NASS relies on the use of diverse surveys that show changes within the farming industry over time. Using the Sheep and Goat Report— January 1, 2019, NASS collects sheep and goat inventory numbers, lamb and kid births, wool production and prices, death losses, and periodically NASS collects information on inventory losses due to predators. In January 2020 NASS would like to add additional questions to the predator loss section of the questionnaire. This is being done in response to a request by the Animal, Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS). The majority of the questions that will be added to the January 2020 questionnaire are included in the Master Questionnaire that was included in the original docket that was submitted to OMB for approval in April 2017. In addition there will be a couple of questions that were approved in the previous docket (Oct. 2014) relating to nonlethal predator control methods used on sheep farms. The few new questions that will be added to the survey relate to the movement of sheep from the farm, the use of identification tags on the sheep, the use of government trappers used to control predators and if the operation quit raising sheep, what was the reason. This substantive change resulted in an overall increase in response burden of approximately 2,800 hours or about 10 minutes per completed questionnaire. The sample size will remain the same. Need and Use of the Information: In order for APHIS to be able to measure E:\FR\FM\09AUN1.SGM 09AUN1
