                                                       THE MARKET BULLETIN IS AVAILABLE ELECTRONICALLY AND VIA E-MAIL!

The Bulletin was made available to subscribers electronically and via e-mail June 2003.

At this point in time, the printed version of the Bulletin will continue to be sent to those subscribers who choose to receive it by regular mail.

The electronic version of the Bulletin will result in substantial postage savings for the West Virginia Department of Agriculture — an ever increasing problem due to state budget cuts.

Many state departments of agriculture across the country have begun providing their agriculture news via the Internet. Some have phased out the printed version altogether.

The electronic version of the Bulletin will be free to all subscribers, this will allow us to phase out out-of-state deliveries of the printed version as out-of-state subscriptions expire.

The WVDA remains committed to providing up-to-date information to the people of West Virginia.
