Title: Distiller's Grains Survey.

OMB Control Number: 0535-0247.

Expiration Date of Approval: August 31, 2009.

Type of Request: To suspend a currently approved information collection.

Abstract: The primary objective of the National Agricultural Statistics Service is to prepare and issue State and national estimates of crop and livestock production, disposition, and prices. The Distiller's Grains Survey was conducted as a one time only survey to gather information for establishing a baseline measure of the current usage of distiller's grains and identify any barriers hindering livestock producers from utilizing distiller's grains and other ethanol by-products in their feed rations. NASS will suspend this information collection as of April 27, 2009 due to the completion of the survey.
