Market News and Statistics

To help Tennessee's farmers and agribusinesses make sound marketing decisions, the Tennessee Department of Agriculture and the United States Department of Agriculture provide the Tennessee Market News Service. Tennesseans have relied on this service for many years. Trained reporters gather and disseminate complete, accurate, unbiased and up to the minute agricultural market news information depicting the current conditions of supply, demand, price, trend, movement and other information affecting the trade of livestock, grain and other commodities.

Timely and reliable information is compiled and updated several times a day through voice mail recordings via a toll-free hotline service provided by the Tennessee Department of Agriculture. The number to call is 1-800-342-8206. In cooperation with USDA, the market news service also disseminates information statewide through local media.
