James A. Graham 




"ames A. Graham became Commissioner of Agricul- 
tureln 1 964 and has successfully guided North Carolina's 
number one industry for over 36 years. He will be leaving 
office in January 2001 as the most experienced Commis- 
sioner in the nation, victorious in nine elections and 
successfully leading North Carolina's agriculture industry 
into the 21 st century. Commissioner Graham's leadership 
and vision for North Carolina agriculture has kept this 
state's farmers at the forefront of today's agricultural revolu- 
tion. 

During his inaugural year, cash receipts from agricul- 
ture were $1 .2 billion with tobacco accounting for nearly 
half of the farm income. North Carolina was a crop- 
oriented state with more than 70 percent of farm income 
related to crop production. Broilers represented the largest 
livestock commodity, accounting for just over 8 percent of 
total cash receipts. But as policies changed and technolo- 
gies developed, Graham recognized the need to diversify 
North Carolina agriculture and to become less dependent 
on one crop in order to remain a dominant force in the 
agricultural sector. 

The latest statistics show agricultural cash receipts growing six fold during Commissioner Graham's tenure, ex- 
ceeding $8 billion in 1 997 and totaling $6.7 billion in 1 999, a year when low prices and hurricanes significantly 
reduced profits for farmers. This growth can be attributed to many of the programs implemented by the Department. 

Today the state's number one commodity is broilers followed by hogs representing 1 9.8 percent and 1 8.5 percent, 
respectively, of total cash receipts. Tobacco remains strong, but has been overtaken as the number one crop by the 
thriving and expanding greenhouse and nursery industry. North Carolina leads the nation in turkey, sweetpotato and 
tobacco production. The state ranks second in hog production, cucumbers for pickles, trout sold and Christmas tree 
sales. North Carolina farmers also have the fifth highest net farm income in the nation. These successes are not coinci- 
dental, but reflect Commissioner Graham's years of work to strengthen North Carolina agriculture. 

One of the greatest success stories was the eradication of the boll weevil in 
North Carolina. In 1 978, growers were limited to harvesting only 42,000 acres of 
cotton because of boll weevil infestations. To enable North Carolina farmers to 
grow more cotton, the boll weevil had to be eliminated. In 1 987, the state was 
declared boll weevil free, and by 2000 farmers increased their plantings to 
940,000 acres. The eradication of the boll weevil also reduced pesticide appli- 
cations, improving cotton profitability and minimizing risk to the environment. 

Commissioner Graham has remained committed to promoting a safe food 
supply. Numerous examples illustrate how animal health was improved through 
coordinated efforts between North Carolina Department of Agriculture and 
Consumer Services (NCDA&CS) and the livestock industry. 

In 1 971 , North Carolina was declared free of Bovine Brucellosis, breathing 
new life into the beef cattle and dairy industries. The hog cholera program was 
declared a complete success in 1 974, ridding North Carolina of this disease and 
proving a model for other states to follow. After several years working with the

But not forgotten. 




hog industry and state veterinarians, North Carolina was declared free of 
pseudorabies in 1 999, opening new markets for live hog sales. 

Commissioner Graham's successes were not just limited to improving 
agricultural production, but also included promoting and protecting the 
state's food supply. He made meat, poultry and seafood inspection one of 
the major objectives of the Department. He supported the complete 
modernization of one of the nation's leading soil testing and animal waste 
analysis labs that provided economic benefits to producers and environ- 
mental benefits to consumers. Farmers utilize the results of these tests as a 
guide to apply fertilizer and to nearly eliminate farm runoff into our streams 
and rivers. Seven animal disease diagnostic laboratories were also built 
across the state to serve every animal owner in North Carolina. 

Five major farmers' markets, located in Asheville, Greensboro, Char- 
lotte, Raleigh and Lumberton, were opened to provide small farmers a local 
market for their fruits and vegetables. International markets have been 
developed for many North Carolina products making our state a leading 
exporter of agricultural commodities. Graham supported the development 
of Carolina Ports, a program to expand international markets. The "Good- 
ness Grows in North Carolina" program, which promotes North Carolina 
products nationally and abroad, was initiated under his leadership. 

The NCDA&CS has expanded its range of services under Graham's 
direction, moving from strictly an agriculture agency to a more broad 
based Department that offers numerous consumer services. Among those is a system to inspect and calibrate the 
8,600 gas pumps in the state each year to ensure consumers are receiving a uniform product. A system is also in place 
to check every commercial scale in the state that weighs any product bought from a producer or sold to a consumer. 
Price scanners are also verified by the Department to help ensure price consistency from shelf to checkout. 

Graham has overseen the development of the Department's pesticide application program that issues licenses to 
qualified applicators and checks sample locations to verify pesticides are 
applied according to environmental laws of the state. Under his leadership, 
the Department has also developed a procedure for testing all types of seed 
for germination and implemented a program to sample and test fertilizer to 
guarantee the proper analysis is being sold to consumers. 

Despite his numerous achievements and hundreds of awards, Commis- 
sioner Graham remains dedicated to serving the needs of farmers and 
others in the agribusiness sector, as well as consumers. 

Jim Graham has provided visionary leadership throughout the past 36 
years, making the NCDA&CS one of the most respected agriculture depart- 
ments in the country. Diversification efforts and Graham's ongoing commit- 
ment to ag research has made North Carolina's farmers well-positioned for 
the next century. 

The man affectionately known as "The Sodfather" has always been 
proud to promote and defend North Carolina's number one industry, 
agriculture — and he has always been quick to tell anyone, I love my job! 

He will be missed, but not forgotten.

About the Cover 



North 
Carolina 




2000 



North Carolina's livestock and poultry indus- 
tries have dominated the North Carolina agricul- 
ture scene since the mid 80's. In 1 999, cash 
receipts from livestock, dairy and poultry totaled 
$3.9 billion and represented 57.6 percent of the 
states agricultural income. Nationally, North 
Carolina ranks 7 th in livestock, dairy and poultry 
production and accounts for $354 million in 
exports. 



Broilers and hogs have been the two key 
commodities that have led the way in livestock 
and poultry production. Broilers have become 
North Carolina's number one commodity, with 
675 million birds sold in 1999. Steady growth 
over the last 50 years have allowed broiler cash 
receipts to increase nearly 70 fold to total $1 .43 
billion this year. Contract farming transformed 

the hog industry in the 90's with modernized production practices catapulting North Caro- 
lina to second in national rankings. Marketings have more than tripled from 1991 to 1999 
with cash receipts totaling $1.16 billion this past year, even with low pork prices. 




Agricultural 
Statistics 



North Carolina leads the nation in turkey production with 46.5 million birds raised in 
1999. Turkey production rose dramatically in the 80's, peaked in 1992, and still remains a 
viable industry today. Many people are surprised to learn that North Carolina is second in 
the nation in trout sales. Regionalized in the western part of the state, trout production has 
become an important piece of our aquaculture industry. Catfish farming continues to 
prosper, producing 2.5 million pounds in 1999, ranking 7 lh in national production. 



The cattle industry has remained fairly stable during the past decade with an average 
inventory of one million head and annual marketings around 450,000 head. The dairy 
industry in North Carolina has been steadily declining in number of farms and number of 

milk cows as environmental regulations have 
made it difficult for small operations to make 
a profit. North Carolina ranks 31 st in the 
nation for beef and milk production. Egg 
production is a $231 million industry in North 
Carolina and ranks 10 th in the nation.

Statistical Reports Program 



NORTH CAROLINA AGRICULTURAL STATISTICS 
brings together the current and historic statistics con- 
cerning agriculture in the State. Where possible, infor- 
mation most often requested by farmers, the general 
public, and workers in government agencies are included. 

Reporting of crop and livestock statistics is a 
service rendered to farmers and others in the State 
by the National Agricultural Statistics Service of the 
U.S. Department of Agriculture in cooperation with 
the North Carolina Department of Agriculture and 
Consumer Services. 

The collection and dissemination of agricultural 
statistics had its start in 1863. This is one of the oldest 
activities of the United States Department of Agriculture. 
It was recognized that there were many advantages of a 
joint relationship between the State and 
Federal Governments in the development of agricultural 
statistics. Thus, in 1919 the N.C. Department of 



Agriculture entered into a cooperative agreement 
with the U.S. Department of Agriculture to provide de- 
tailed agricultural statistics. The agreement resulted in 
the creation of the Agricultural Statistics Division of the 
North Carolina Department of Agriculture and Consumer 
Services. 

The North Carolina Agricultural Statistics Division 
publishes official statistics on crops, livestock, prices, 
and various other agricultural items. The most important 
reports and the approximate dates of release are shown 
in the table below. The reports marked with an (*) are 
issued separately. All others are included in the semi- 
monthly release entitled "Farm Report". The reports are 
free for respondents providing information used to 
compile the reports. Others are charged a nominal fee 
for the reports, which are available by writing to: 
State Statistician, P.O. Box 27767, Raleigh, NC 27611 or

North Carolina 1999 Annual Weather and Climate Summary 



The new year began with mild weather throughout 
North Carolina. January was relatively dry until the 
last week when much needed rainfall was accompanied 
by warm temperatures for much of the State. Soil mois- 
ture was not a concern even though 1998 finished very 
dry with most of the reporting stations several inches be- 
low normal. February was also mild and heading into 
March, farmers took advantage of the weather to get their 
cabbage and Irish potatoes in the ground early. March 
proved to be a wet month with most of the State report- 
ing weekly rainfall. However, there were enough breaks 
in the weather for farmers to stay well ahead of normal 
for cabbage and spring potato planting. By the end of 
March, small grain conditions were improving along with 
pastureland. 

April started out dry allowing farmers to concentrate 
on field preparation. Cooler weather during the middle 
of the month was accompanied by heavy rainfall and iso- 
lated severe weather. April ended with much needed 
rainfall as corn plantings were 75% complete, flue-cured 
tobacco over 50% planted, and cotton planting just 
underway. Field activities at the beginning of May were 
limited due to precipitation. The latter part of May 
turned dry with only scattered rainfall. At month's end 
many locations, especially in the Piedmont, had 
experienced an extremely dry May with record low pre- 
cipitation in some areas. This caused soil moisture levels 
to dip and discouraged farmers who were postponing 
plantings until rain was forecast. Entering June, corn 
planting and tobacco setting were nearly complete 
while cotton and peanuts plantings were over 90% fin- 
ished. Soybeans and sweetpotatoes plantings were a little 
behind schedule having just really geared up. The first 
half of June was hot and extremely dry. Crop conditions 
were slipping along with Statewide soil moisture levels. 
Finally, the last half of June brought significant rainfall 
and mild temperatures. The crops responded to the timely 
rainfall as corn, cotton and tobacco were in critical stages 
of development. 

Hot weather returned in July with temperatures top- 
ping out in the 100's in some areas. The middle of the 
month provided some relief with cooler temperatures and 
widespread rainfall. Extreme heat and arid conditions re- 
turned in August. By the middle of August, soil moisture 
was short to very short as the harvest season was under- 



way. A mid-month cool front collided with the dominant 
high pressure and spawned some severe weather, but 
welcome precipitation resulted for a majority of the 
Piedmont and Coastal Plain regions. Fields soaked up the 
moisture and quickly dried, allowing farmers to continue 
tobacco harvesting and begin picking corn. By the 
beginning of September, tobacco harvest was over half 
done, corn harvest was over a quarter complete, cotton 
bolls were nearly all set and starting to open, and 
soybean pods were over three-quarters set. All the crop 
progress stages were at or near their respective five-year 
averages. Drought conditions were still a concern with 
almost every weather station reporting significantly below 
normal rainfall levels. 

The concern about dry weather for the eastern part of 
the State gave way to extreme flooding in September. The 
combined effects of three tropical storms (Dennis, Irene 
and Floyd) was easily the top story of 1999. The incredible 
amounts of rainfall, over 25 inches in some areas, caused 
massive flooding, crop destruction, and structure and 
equipment damage to the entire coastal region. Close to a 
billion dollars in damage to the agriculture sector alone 
was estimated from this tropical season. The wet weather 
continued into October as over 50% of the State was re- 
porting surplus soil moisture. The excessive moisture put 
most crops behind schedule for harvest. By the end of a 
fairly typical October, tobacco harvest was finished, corn 
harvest was 90% complete, sweetpotatoes were 70% har- 
vested, peanuts were 50% threshed, and cotton and soy- 
bean picking had really just begun. Ironically, with all 
the rainfall experienced in September and October, the 
Mountain region was still suffering from drought-like 
conditions. 

November was unseasonably warm with widespread 
rainfall the first and last parts of the month. Farmers 
took advantage of the periods of warm, dry weather to 
complete all harvest activities except cotton, soybean 
and limited peanut acres left to be threshed. Over 70% of 
the small grains were planted by the end of the month, 
and just over half the wheat was emerged. By the middle 
of December the harvest season was almost complete, and 
nearly all the small grains were planted. The year 
ended with mostly mild weather and limited precipita- 
tion as over 95% of the wheat was emerged and only 
limited soybean acreage remained unharvested.

The total amount of fertilizer, including lime and land 
plaster, shipped in North Carolina fell 7% from last 
year to 2.71 million tons. Lime tonnage in 1999 decreased 
9% from 1,052,695 to 958,951 tons. Land plaster ship- 
ments, at 122,204 tons, decreased 20% from last year. 
This is the second year of the new fertilizer law which 
no longer requires companies to report by grade and 
county. Fertilizer is broken down into the following 
categories: Dry Materials, Mixed Materials, Other Dry 
Materials, Bagged Products, Fluid Materials, Mixed Fluid 
Materials, and Other Fluid Materials. Dry and Fluid 
Materials include any substance containing either nitrogen, 
phosphorus, potassium, or any other recognized plant 
food element or compound which is used primarily for

1999 North Carolina Crops Summary 



Flue-cured Tobacco Production Down 

For the second year in a row, North Carolina flue-cured 
tobacco growers had to contend with quota cuts and erratic, 
damaging weather patterns. Early in the season flue-cured 
growers experienced drought-like conditions until several 
hurricanes came well ashore in September and October. Bor- 
der Belt tobacco was largely unaffected bv the adverse hurri- 
cane conditions, but was affected by dry conditions. 
Eastern Belt harvest was partially complete when excessive 
moisture and high winds caused large field losses. Power 
outages also caused tobacco to rot in curing barns. Fhe Old 
Belt received much needed moisture from the hurricanes 
that resulted in improved yields. 

The overall yield for N.C. flue-cured tobacco was 2,183 
pounds per acre. This was 39 pounds below 1998 and 111 
pounds less than the 1997 yield. Growers harvested 200,000 
acres, 43,000 less than 1998. Production, at 436.5 million 
pounds, was down 19% from a year ago. The value of the 
flue-cured crop totaled $764 million, down 20% from 1998. 

Burley tobacco producers harvested 7,800 acres in 1999, 
a 4% decrease from 1998. Yield for burley tobacco, at 1,600 
pounds, was up 150 pounds from 1998 despite a third straight 
year of dry weather. Production, at 12.5 million pounds, rep- 
resents an increase of 6% from 1998. Value of the crop, at 
$23.8 million, compared to $22.3 million last year. 

Hurricanes Slam Cotton Crop 

Damage sustained from the hurricane season reduced 
cotton yield and increased the number of abandoned 
acres. The State's cotton crop totaled 816,000 bales in 1999, 
down 20% from 1998. Area harvested totaled 825,000 acres, 
17% above last year. Yield per acre averaged 475 pounds, 
224 pounds less than the previous year's average and the 
lowest since 1983. The value of the crop was $180 million, a 
disappointing 44% below 1998. The average price was 45.9 
cents per pound, nearly 20 cents below 1998. Cottonseed 
production totaled 278,000 tons in 1999, 21% below the 
previous year. Value of cottonseed production was $27 
million, and the price averaged $96.00 per ton. 

Soybean Production Drops 

The 1999 hurricane season took a toll on North Carolina's 
soybean crop. Yield averaged 23 bushels per acre, 4 bushels 
per acre less than a year ago. Production totaled 29.9 million 
bushels, down over 8 million bushels from the 1998 crop. 
Harvested area, at 1.3 million acres, was 115,000 acres below 
last year because of flooding associated with the hurricanes. 
The value of production was estimated at $139 million, 28% 
less than 1998. Average price, at $4.65 per bushel, was 38 
cents below 1998 and the lowest price since 1972. 

Sweetpotato Crop Down 

North Carolina sweetpotato production in 1999 totaled 
377 million pounds, down 31% from 1998. Hurricane damage 
reduced yields and increased the number of abandoned acres. 
Average yield per acre was estimated at 13,000 pounds, down 
4,000 pounds from the record yield set a year ago. The sweetpotato 
crop was valued at $45.2 million, down 24% from 1998. The 
average price, at 12 cents per pound, was 1 cent above the 
previous year. Harvested area, at 29,000 acres, was down 
3,000 from a year earlier. 

Potato Crop Value Up 

The production of Irish potatoes in North Carolina de- 
creased 1% in 1999 to 341 million pounds. Average yield, at 
19,500 pounds per acre, was up 1,100 pounds from 1998. 
Harvested acres were down 1,100 to 17,500. Value of pro- 
duction totaled $21.2 million, and the average price was 6.2 
cents per pound. 



Smallest Corn Crop Since 1954 

The production of corn for grain in 1999 totaled 51.2 
million bushels, down 5% from last year and the lowest 
production since 1954. The decrease in production is attrib- 
uted to the continuing trend away from corn because of low 
prices. Tar Heel farmers harvested 640,000 acres with an 
average yield of 80 bushels per acre. This compares with 
770,000 acres harvested in 1998 when yields averaged a mere 
70 bushels per acre. The value of the crop totaled just over 
$115 million, down 8% from 1998 and the lowest since 1971. 
The average price, at $2.25 per bushel, was down 8 cents 
from 1998, and the lowest since 1987. 

Peanut Yield Down Sharply 

North Carolina peanut production was reduced by floods 
and excessive moisture conditions. Overall, fields closer to 
the coast that drained well experienced fewer losses than 
did the less permeable fields further inland. Yield, at 2,410 
pounds per acre, was 780 pounds less than the final 1998 
yield. Growers harvested 124,000 acres in 1999, down frac- 
tionally from 1998. This resulted in total production of 298.8 
million pounds, 25% below 1998. The marketing year aver- 
age price for 1999 was 27.6 cents per pound. 

Wheat Yield and Production Up 

Although North Carolina's 1999 harvested wheat acre- 
age decreased 15% from 1998 to 580,000, yield increased to 
49 bushels per acre, 8 bushels above 1998. Production, at 
28.4 million bushels, was 2% above a year ago. However, 
wheat only brought $2.20 per bushel, 35 cents below last 
year. This resulted in the value of the crop decreasing to 
$62.5 million, 12% below last year. 

Vegetable Production Mixed 

North Carolina production of processed cucumbers to- 
taled 78,000 tons, 1% less than 1998 and was valued at $20.6 
million. Fresh market cucumber production totaled 64.1 mil- 
lion pounds, down 15% from a year earlier. Value of produc- 
tion totaled $7.1 million. Tomato growers produced 71.3 
million pounds of tomatoes, 16% more than 1998. The value 
of the crop is estimated at $20.7 million. Bell pepper produc- 
tion is estimated at 71.3 million pounds, 56% above 1998, 
with a crop value of $14.6 million. Strawberry farmers pro- 
duced 17.6 million pounds of strawberries in 1999, down 12% 
from the previous year. The value of the crop is estimated at 
$14.1 million. All cabbage production totaled 129 million pounds, 
13% less than 1998. The value of the crop is placed at $11.0 
million. Snap beans harvested are estimated at 31.3 million 
pounds, up 8% from last year. The value of production was 
$8.8 million. Sweet corn production totaled 56.0 million pounds 
and is valued at $7.9 million. Producers harvested 129 million 
pounds of watermelons, a 10% decrease from a year ago. 
The value of the crop was $6.7 million. 

Fruit Value Up 

North Carolina total apple production for 1999, at 190 
million pounds, increased 3% from 1998. Utilized produc- 
tion increased 26% from 1998 to 170 million pounds. The 
value of production was $25.7 million, 72% above 1998. 

The 1999 North Carolina blueberry utilized production, 
at 13 million pounds, was down 8% from 1998. Yield per 
harvested acre averaged 4,060 pounds compared to 4,730 
pounds last year. The average price for all sales was $1.03 
per pound, with the value of production totaling $13.4 mil- 
lion. 

North Carolina peach production in 1999 totaled 28.0 
million pounds compared to 25.0 million last year. The crop 
is valued at $10.8 million, up 14% a year ago. Average price 
received was 39 cents per pound.

17.6 million square feet of covered area and 436 acres of 
outdoor production. Only growers with sales of $100,000 or 
more were surveyed for selected floriculture crops. The wholesale 
value of the selected floriculture crops surveyed totaled $121.1 
million in 1999, up 12% from 1998. Quantity sold in 2000 is 
expected to increase substantially. The text and table below 
are based upon 124 growers with $100,000 or more in sales. 

Bedding/Garden Plants accounted for $77.7 million of 
the overall sales, up 14% from 1998. Flats of bedding plants 
totaled $24.5 million, virtually unchanged from 1998. Potted 
bedding plant sales increased 24% in 1999, totaling $38.7 million. 
Total quantity sold in 2000 is expected to increase 22%.

1999 North Carolina Livestock Summary 



Cash Receipts Down 

Cash receipts from all livestock, dairy, and poultry 
products decreased to $3.9 billion in 1999, down 3% from 
1998. Hogs took another big hit in 1999, dropping 12% from 
1998 to $1.16 billion. Eggs dropped $1.4 million to $231 
million. Catfish and trout sales decreased 1% to $8.4 million. 
On the brighter side, cattle were up 25% to $193 million. 
Turkeys and broilers each increased 1%, with broilers 
totaling $1.4 billion and turkeys bringing in $475 million. 
Receipts from milk were up slightly to $208 million. Honey 
sales were up 3% and totaled $671,000. 

Broilers are the number one commodity in the state 
with 21.4% of total sales, followed by hogs at 17.4%. 

Broiler Income Record High 

Broiler income for the state continued to rise in 1999 
and totaled $1.4 billion, up 1% from last year's record. 
Production increased 8%. to 3.9 billion pounds, but price 
declined to 37.0 cents per pound in 1999, down 6% from 
last year. North Carolina ranks fourth in the nation in 
broiler production with a total of 675 million birds, up 3% 
from 1998. 

Hog Cash Receipts Drop 

Cash receipts from the marketing of North Carolina 
hogs and pigs dropped 12% to $1.16 billion in 1999 primarily 
as a result of a $3.70 per 100 pounds decline in the price 
received by producers. This huge decline dropped hogs to 
the number two commodity in the state behind broilers. The 
number of hog marketings for the year increased 1% from 
1998 to 17.8 million head. However, much of the increase was 
in early weaned pigs shipped out of state. This resulted in pork 
production declining 2% from last year, totaling 3.7 billion 
pounds. 

Inventory of hogs and pigs on December 1, 1999 totaled 
9.5 million head, down 2% from 1998. The inventory was 
down 8% from the all time high inventory of 10.3 million 
head on September 1, 1998. A crop of 18.8 million pigs 
was produced in the state during the year, another record 
high, slightly above the 18.7 million produced in 1998. 
The average liter size increased slightly in 1999 to 8.88 pigs. 
The value of home consumption was down 16% to $1.6 
million. About two-thirds of the states hogs and pigs are 
under contract compared to about one fourth for the nation. 
Under contract means owned by large operators, but raised 
by contractees. 

Turkey Numbers Decline 

North Carolina retained the number one ranking in 
turkey production in 1999 despite dropping to 1.1 billion 
pounds produced, down 11% from the previous year. The 
number of turkeys raised totaled 46.5 million in 1999, 
down 7% from last year. Turkey price per pound increased 
5 cents to 42 cents allowing cash receipts to increase to 
$475 million, 1% above 1998. 

Egg Receipts Down 

The value of egg production in North Carolina decreased 
1% in 1999 to $231 million. Price per dozen, including hatch- 
ing eggs, increased 2% from the previous year to $1.07. The 
number of eggs produced increased 1% to 2.6 billion. The 
state ranks ninth nationally in the value of egg production. 



Milk Receipts Higher 

During 1999, cash receipts from marketing of milk and 
cream produced in North Carolina rose slightly from 1998 to 
$208 million. The increase was made possible by a 3%. increase 
in the price received, averaging $17.40 per 100 pounds. 

Output per cow declined slightly to 16,658 pounds in 
1999 along with a 3% decline in milk cow numbers, averag- 
ing 73,000 head, reduced milk production by 3% in 1999 
to 1.22 billion pounds. 

Trout Sales Up 

North Carolina's commercial trout growers sold a total 
of 4.5 million pounds of trout (foodsize, stackers, and finger- 
lings) during the 12 month period of September 1, 1998 and 
ending August 31, 1999. Trout sales were valued at $6.4 
million, up 1% from the previous year. The state ranks 
second in the nation in trout sales. 

Foodsize value of sales increased 8% to $6.0 million and 
averaged $1.32 per pound, same as the previous year. Sales 
to processors accounted for 49% of foodsize sales with 43% 
going to restaurants and retail outlets, and another 8% going 
directly to consumers. Trout losses totaled 280,000 pounds 
for the year with 49% lost to drought, 19% to disease, 13% 
to predators, and the balance to chemicals, floods, and theft. 

Cattle and Calf Marketings Increase 

Cattle and calf marketings increased 16% to 245,000 
head and 215,000 respectively in 1999. Calf births totaled 
450,000 head, unchanged from the previous year. Inventory 
of cattle and calves in North Carolina as of January 1, 2000, 
at 980,000 head, was up 2% from the previous year. 

Cash receipts from cattle and calves totaled $193 million, 
up 25% from 1998. Increased marketing and higher prices 
accounted for the increase in cash receipts. Cattle and calf 
prices per 100 pounds were $51.10 and $78.50 respectively. 
The value of home consumption increased 10% in 1999 to 
$8.4 million. 

Catfish Sales Down 

The 44 commercial catfish growers in North Carolina 
had sales of $2.1 million in 1999, down 5% from the $2.2 
million the previous year. The water surface area used for 
the 1999 catfish production totaled 1,200 acres, up 30 acres 
from the previous year. Ninety six percent of foodsize 
catfish sales went to processors with the remainder going 
to restaurants and other outlets. The average price received 
for foodsize catfish in North Carolina was 74 cents per 
pound, down 2 cents from the previous year's average, and 
1 cent above the national average. North Carolina producers 
received slightly more per pound for their fish than the 
producers in the leading producing states of Mississippi and 
Alabama, and equaling Arkansas. 

Honey Production Down 

Commercial honey producers in North Carolina with five 
or more colonies produced 414,000 pounds of honey in 1999, 
down 12% from a year ago. The estimated 9,000 colonies 
increased nearly 13% from 1998. Yield per colony averaged 46 
pounds, down 13 pounds from 1998. Average price for the 
1999 crop, at $1.62 per pound, was up 24 cents from a year 
earlier. The value of commercial honey production totaled 
$671,000, up 3% from 1998.

Commerce and are published every five years. Counties not harvesting more than 5 acres of tobacco or peanuts, 100 acres of 
sorghum or cotton, and 200 acres of all other crops were not published and are designated by an asterisk (*). Also not published 
were counties with fewer than 1,000 hogs or 500 total cattle, 200 beef or milk cows, 500,000 broilers or turkeys, or 50,000 other
