The Department of Agriculture this week announced a new USDA Market News Mobile Application. 

The app provides producers and everyone else in the supply chain with instant access to current and historical market information. 

The initial version of the free app includes nearly 800 livestock, poultry, and grain market reports, with additional commodities added throughout the coming year. Producers and other users can search for markets based on their location, by state, or by commodity. 

They also can add market reports to their favorites for easier access, share reports via text or email, subscribe to reports, and receive real-time notifications when a new report is published. 

There are both iOS and Android versions available to download through the Apple and Google Play stores. 

The iOS version is available now, and the Android version will be available later this week. 

Search for “USDA Market News Mobile Application” to download the app to your phone.
