PREFACE 



Volume I, Counties and State Economic Areas, is one of the three principal reports 
presenting the results of the 1954 Census of Agriculture. This volume, in 33 parts, pre- 
sents the compilation of the information given by farm operators to Census enumerators 
in 1954. 

The 1954 Census of Agriculture was taken in conformity with the Act of Congress 
(Title 13, United States Code) approved August 31, 1954, which includes provisions for 
the mid-decade censuses of agriculture. 

The collection of the data was carried out by Census enumerators directed by super- 
visors appointed by the Director of the Census and working under the direction of Jack B. 
Robertson, then Chief, Field Division. Ernest R. Underwood, then special Assistant to the 
Director, was responsible for the recruitment of the field staff. The planning of the census 
and the compilation of the statistics were supervised by Ray Hurley, Chief, Agriculture 
Division, and Warder B. Jenkins, Assistant Chief. They were assisted by Hilton E. 
Robison, Orvin L. Wilhite, Hubert L. Collins, Benjamin J. Tepping, Lois Hutchison, 
Carl R. Nyman, J. Thomas Breen, Robert S. Overton, Merton V. Llndquist, Russell V. 
Oliver, Charles F. Frazier, Gladys L. Eagle, Orville M. Slye, Gaylord G. Green, Harold N. 
Cox, and Henry A. Tucker. 

Acknowledgment is made of the technical assistance and the loan of technical 
personnel by the United States Department of Agriculture in the planning, the enumera- 
tion, and the compilation of the 1954 Census of Agriculture.

Volume III. — Special Reports 
Part 1. — Multiple-unit Operations. This report will be similar to 
Part 2 of Volume V of the reports for the 1950 Census of 
Agriculture. It will present statistics for approximately 900 
counties and State economic areas in 12 Southern States and 
Missouri for the number and characteristics of multiple-unit 
operations and farms in multiple units. 

Part 2. — Ranking Agricultural Counties. This special report will 
present statistics for selected items of inventory and agricul- 
tural production for the leading counties in the United States. 

Part 3. — Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, District of Columbia, and 
V. S. Possessions. These areas were not included in the 1954 
Census of Agriculture. The available current data from vari- 
ous Government sources will be compiled and published in 
this report. 

Part 4. — Agriculture, 1954, a Graphic Summary. This report will 
present graphically some of the significant facts regarding 
agriculture and agricultural production as revealed by the 1954 
Census of Agriculture. 

Part 5. — Farm-mortgage Debt. This will be a cooperative study 
by the Agricultural Research Service of the U. S. Department 
of Agriculture and the Bureau of the Census. It will present, 
by States, data based on the 1954 Census of Agriculture and a 
special mail survey to be conducted in January 1956, on the 
number of mortgaged farms, the amount of mortgage debt, and 
the amount of debt held by principal lending agencies. 



Part 6. — Irrigation in Humid Areas. This cooperative report by 
the Agricultural Research Service of the U. S. Department of 
Agriculture and the Bureau of the Census will present data ob- 
tained by a mail survey of operators of irrigated farms in 28 
States on the source of water, method of applying water, num- 
ber of pumps used, acres of crops irrigated in 1954 and 1955, 
the number of times each crop was irrigated, and the cost of 
irrigation equipment and the irrigation system. 

Part 7. — Popular Report of the 1954 Census of Agriculture. This 
report is planned to be a general, easy-to-read publication for 
the general public on the status and broad characteristics of 
United States agriculture. It will seek to delineate such as- 
pects of agriculture as the geographic distribution and dif- 
ferences by size of farm for such items as farm acreage, 
principal crops, and important kinds of livestock, farm facili- 
ties, farm equipment, use of fertilizer, soil conservation prac- 
tices, farm tenure, and farm income. 

Part 8. — Size of Operation by Type of Farm. This will be a coop- 
erative special report to be prepared in cooperation with the 
Agricultural Research Service of the U. S. Department of Agri- 
culture. This report will contain data for 119 economic sub- 
regions, (essentially general type-of-farming areas) showing the 
general characteristics for each type of farm by economic class. 
It will provide data for a current analysis of the differences 
that exist among groups of farms of the same type. It will 
furnish statistical basis for a realistic examination of produc- 
tion of such commodities as wheat, cotton, and dairy products 
in connection with actual or proposed governmental policies 
and programs.

INTRODUCTION 



This report presents data relating to the agriculture of the 
United States based on the most recent census of agriculture 
taken in the fall of 1954. The tables also include some compara- 
tive data from earlier censuses. 

History and legal basis. — The current census extends the num- 
ber of nationwide agricultural censuses to 16. Initially, an agri- 
cultural enumeration was taken in conjunction with the Decen- 
nial Census of Population in 1840. Congress first provided for 
a mid-decennial census for the year 1915 ; however, abnormalities 
created by World War I prevented the taking of this census. 
Since 1920, a national agricultural census has been taken each 
five years. 

The 1954 Census of Agriculture was authorized by an Act of 
Congress 'approved June 18, 1929, and amended July 16, 1952. 
Section 16 of the Act, as amended, reads aw follows : "That there 
shall be taken, beginning in the month of October 1954, and in the 
same month of every tenth year thereafter, a census of agri- 
culture. The census herein provided for shall include each State, 
but shall not include the District of Columbia, Alaska, Hawaii, 
Tuerto Rico, or such other areas or territories over which t lie 
United States exercises sovereignty or Jurisdiction : Provided, 
however, that as to the areas excluded from such census it is 
directed that data available from various Government sources 
shall be included as an appendix to the report of such census. 
The Secretary of Commerce is authorized to collect such prelimi- 
nary or supplementary statistics, either in advance of, or after 
the taking of such census, as are necessary to the initiation, 
taking, or completion thereof. The inquiries, and the number, 
form, and subdivisions thereof for the census provided for in 
this section shall be determined by the Secretary of Commerce." 
The initial appropriation for map preparation, field enumera- 
tion, and a part of the office processing was obtained under this 
authority. Subsequently, the Congress, in a code revision ap- 
proved August 31, 1954, incorporated the provisions for all cen- 
suses in a code which may be cited as "Title 13, United States 
Code." 

The request for funds for fiscal year 1954 included funds for 
preparatory work for a complete census of agriculture to be 
taken in the fall of 1954. This request was not approved by 
the Congress. However, a limited appropriation was made for 
exi>enses for "spot checking business, manufactures, and agri- 
culture in such manner as the Secretary of Commerce should 
decide to be most helpful and informative to said undertakings." 
Since one of the important uses of quinquennial agricultural 
census statistics is to serve as a benchmark for the annual esti- 
mates of production and inventories prepared by the United 
States Department of Agriculture, the assumption was made that 
a "spot check" should provide reliable totals for a limited number 
of items by States and major producing areas. Accordingly, a 
sample census was conducted as a pretest of procedures in Utah 
and Virginia, beginning in October 1953. These surveys are 
more fully described in separate reports for those two States, 
published in 1954. 

Congress, in an appropriation Act approved July 2, 1954, appro- 
priated $16,000,000 for the expenses necessary for taking, com- 
piling, and publishing the 1954 Census of Agriculture, as author- 
ized by law. Additional funds, amounting to $5,500,000, were 
appropriated in 1955 in order to complete the work on the 1954 
Census. 

Plan of presentation of statistics. — This report follows the same 
general plan of presentation as that for 1950, the last complete 



census of agriculture. The report is a part of Volume I which 
comprises 33 reports. Each part of Volume I presents the data 
for each county and each State economic area for one or more 
States as well as State totals for those States for which county 
and State economic area data are shown. Statistics are most 
revealing when comparisons are available. Therefore, compa- 
rable data gathered in the 1950 Census of Agriculture are given 
for counties and for State economic areas. Comparative data for 
the States are given for each successive census year beginning 
with 1920. However, for some items, the data obtained in 1954 
are the only ones available. 

The tables provide totals for counties for nearly all items for 
which information was obtained in the 1954 Census. However,, 
most data by economic class of farm, type of farm, and color and 
tenure of farm operator are presented only for State economic 
areas. State economic areas represent groupings of counties 
within a State. Outside of metropolitan areas, the State economic 
areas are, in general, the same as State type-of-farming areas. 
(A description of State economic areas is given in a Special Re- 
port of the 1950 Census, entitled "State Economic Areas : A De- 
scription of the Procedure Used in Making a Functional Grouping 
of the Counties in the United States.") A map showing the 
State economic areas is shown at the beginning of Chapter C of 
this report. 

The Act of Congress excluded from the field enumeration the 
agriculture in Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, District of Columbia, 
and U. S. possessions. Available statistics, obtained from other 
sources, for these areas are included in Part 3 of Volume HI. 

Data for most of the items included in the 1954 Census of Agri- 
culture, as in prior censuses, were tabulated for "minor civil 
divisions" or areas smaller than counties. The term "minor civil 
division" is applied to the primary subdivisions of the counties. 
These may be townships, precincts, districts, independent muni- 
cipalities, unorganized territory, etc. The figures for these 
smaller areas are not included in any of the regular reports. 
However, it is possible to obtain data for small geographic areas, 
as heretofore, by paying the cost of checking the data and pre- 
paring the necessary statistical tables. 

Prior to the 1954 Census, an enumeration district did not in- 
clude more than one minor civil division, even though the town- 
ship, precinct, or the like often did not have enough farms to 
provide a full workload for an enumerator. The aim in estab- 
lishing the 1954 enumeration districts was to make them larsre 
enough to keep each enumerator fully occupied in his area for a 
thiee-week, or possibly a four-week, period. Hence, some enumer- 
ation districts included more than one minor civil division. Such 
combined minor divisions were always adjacent. An enumera- 
tion district never comprised the whole of one minor civil division 
and a part of another nor a part of two or more minor civil 
divisions. A minor civil division which included too many farms 
for one enumerator was divided into two or more enumeration 
districts. 

The tabulations, as made by machines, in some cases provided 
totals for a single minor civil division— even though that 
required a grouping of enumeration districts — and. in other 
cases, they provided totals for two or more minor civil divisions 
combined. In the latter instance, the small-area data will be 
readily available only for combined totals for adjoining minor 
civil divisions. If there is need for making a separation of the 
data for such combinations, this is possible at some additional

cost, since each questionnaire contains the name of the minor 
civil division in which the farm headquarters was located. 

Operations for 1954 Census. — The Act providing for the 1954 
Census of Agriculture states that "the inquiries, and the number, 
form, and subdivision thereof . . . shall be determined by the 
Secretary of Commerce." The staff of the Bureau of the Census 
prepared the questionnaire for the 1954 Census of Agriculture 
on the basis of experience obtained in prior censuses, on the 
basis of an analysis of the sample survey for the States of Utah 
and Virginia for the calendar year 1953, and on the basis of the 
advice of a Special Advisory Committee for the 1954 Census of 
Agriculture. The Advisory Committee comprised representatives 
of the U. S. Department of Agriculture, State Agricultural Col- 
leges, State Departments of Agriculture, The American Farm 
Economic Association, The American Statistical Association, The 
Association of Land-Grant Colleges and Universities, The Agri- 
cultural Publishers Association, The Farm Equipment Institute, 
The American Farm Bureau Federation, The National Grange, 
The National Council of Planners* Cooperatives, and the Farmers' 
Educational and Cooperative Union of America. 

The Special Advisory Committee had also assisted in deciding 
the inquiries to be included on the questionnaire for the 1953 
Sample Census for Utah and Virginia. During the planning, 
State Agricultural Colleges, the U. S. Department of Agriculture, 
and other major users of data from the census of agriculture were 
asked to submit suggested inquiries for the census. The number 
of inquiries recommended greatly exceeded the number that 
could be included in the census. The Special Advisory Com- 
mittee and the staff of the Bureau recommended the inclusion 
or exclusion of these inquiries after giving consideration to the 
possibilities of obtaining the information in some way other than 
through the census of agriculture, to the adequacy of the informa- 
tion that might be secured in the census, to the availability of 
data from other sources, and to the usefulness of the data, etc. 
This committee reviewed the plans and questionnaires for the 
1953 sample enumeration and the 1954 Census of Agriculture as 
they were developed, and submitted recommendations regarding 
these plans and questionnaires. 

The content of the 21 regional questionnaires (one for each 
State or group of adjacent States) was similar to that of the 
questionnaires used for the Utah and Virginia sample .surveys 
conducted in 1953. There were variations region by region in the 
questionnaires to provide for differences in crops grown, in live- 
stock production, and in cultural practices. Also, the positions 
of inquiries were changed in order to provide for the enumera- 
tion of some items for a limited number of farms even though 
other inquiries were made for all farms. 

An agricultural census that collects vast quantities of reliable 
information requires that all employees be trained and that they 
adhere carefully to prescribed procedures as well as time sched- 
ules. For the 1954 Census of Agriculture, the Bureau devised a 
training program so that all employees received instructions for 
the respective jobs. In most instances, training sessions were 
held near the areas in which employees worked and immediately 
prior to the beginning of their assignments. 

The 1954 enumeration required approximately 30,000 enumera- 
tors who were supervised by some 2,200 crew leaders. These 
persons were supervised by 119 field offices organized under five 
regional offices. From October 4 to November 8, 1954, depending 
upon the State and the area, trained enumerators began their 
work. Their work was to obtain for every farm the required 
information about that farm's operations, such as its*rops, live- 
stock, poultry, farm expenses, equipment and facilities, and some 
facts about the farm operator. 

About two weeks before the census starting date, questionnaires 
were distributed to all box holders on the rural postal routes in 
all except a few Southern States. The questionnaire was accom- 
panied by a letter asking the farm operator to examine it and to 
answer as many of the questions as possible prior to the visit of 
the census enumerator. By this- procedure, the Bureau expected 



to expedite the work of the enumerator and to improve the quality 
of the information given by farmers. By reading the question- 
naire, farmers knew what was wanted and could check their 
records in advance of the enumerator's visit. 

A good census requires a complete as well as an accurate 
enumeration. Several techniques were used to help obtain a good 
census in 1954. 

Instructions covering census procedures were designed in such 
a manner that objective criteria were supplied, and enumerators 
were not expected to rely on their own opinions or judgments 
concerning census entries or classifications. For example, an 
enumerator was required to complete an agriculture question- 
naire when specified conditions were met. He was not required 
to decide first what constituted a farm and then to obtain a 
questionnaire. Instead, a questionnaire was completed whenever 
minimum conditions were satisfied. Then, during central office 
processing operations, a decision was made — on the basis of care- 
fully defined criteria — as to which questionnaires represented 
farms. 

To help in insuring the completeness of the enumeration, 
enumerators were provided with a specially designed Enumera- 
tor's Record Book in which to list heads of households for the 
dwellings in their enumeration districts and names of the tenants 
or owners for places on which no one lived. The Enumerator's 
Record Book contained questions about the agricultural opera- 
tions on the place. The answers to these questions determined 
whether an agriculture questionnaire was required for the place 
and, also, whether this enumerator or an enumerator in another 
enumeration district was required to fill out the questionnaire. 

In order to minimize the cost of the enumeration, procedures 
were developed to limit the listing of heads of households and of 
other places in urban areas, incorporated places, and built-up 
residential areas. In accordance with these procedures, enumera- 
tion districts were classified, prior to the enumeration, into three 
groups on the basis of the density of dwellings in relation to the 
number of farms according to the 1950 Censuses of Agriculture 
and Population. 

In general, the enumeration districts with no well-defined cluster 
of dwellings were considered to be open-country areas and were 
classified as Group I Enumeration Districts. For Group I Enu- 
meration Districts the enumerator was required to list in his 
Enumerator's Record Book the name of the head of each house- 
hold within his district. If no one lived on a tract of land, he 
was required to list the name of the person who rented the land, 
worked it on shares, used it for livestock, or, if the land was not 
used for agricultural purposes, the name of the owner. There 
were approximately 15,300 Group I Enumeration Districts. These 
enumeration districts contained 2.778,000 farms and 4,263,000 
dwelling units in 1950. 

The rural enumeration districts in which the number of dwell- 
ings was large in relation to the number of farms were classified 
as Group II Enumeration Districts. In these enumeration dis- 
tricts the enumerator was required to list all dwelling places in 
his district except those on less than one acre of land in built-up 
residential areas, such as small incorporated or unincorporated 
villages or the built-up areas adjacent to towns or cities. He was 
also required to determine, by asking locally, whether there were 
any farms or any places of one or more acres within the built-up 
areas. Outside the built-up areas he was required to list the head 
of every household. There were approximately 14,800 enumera- 
tion districts classified as Group II. These enumeration districts 
had 8,974,000 dwelling units and 2,420,000 farms in 1950. 

Most incorporated places and unincorporated villages with ap- 
proximately 150 or more dwellings were classified as Group III 
Enumeration Districts. There were approximately 11,000 such 
enumeration districts and these contained 161,000 farms in 1950. 
For Group III Enumeration Districts, the enumerator was given 
a list of farm operators enumerated in the 1950 Census of Agri- 
culture and was instructed to visit each place listed and find out 



INTRODUCTION

whether an agriculture questionnaire was required. Any place 
used for agriculture was to be listed in his Enumerator's Record 
Book and an agriculture questionnaire was to be obtained. If 
the place was no longer used for agriculture, an explanation was 
to be made on the list furnished the enumerator. The enumera- 
tor was instructed to ask at each of these places whether there 
were any other farms or any places of 3 or more acres in the 
neighborhood. 

A few enumeration districts that comprised an incorporated 
place or that were within an incorporated city were classified as 
Group I or Group II if the number of farms was large. Also, a 
few very extensive rural districts requiring considerable travel 
were classified in Group III when the number of farms was small. 

The method prescribed for canvassing an enumeration district 
helped to insure complete coverage. The enumerator was in- 
structed to proceed in a systematic manner from a logical start- 
ing point. He listed each place and each dwelling on successive 
lines in the Enumerator's Record Book. In addition, he was re- 
quired to identify these on his enumerator's map with a cross 
reference to the Enumerator's Record Book. This procedure 
helped him to determine, by looking at his map, the extent of 
coverage at any given time: It also helped the crew leader in 
checking to see that coverage was complete. 

Some farms were given special attention to insure their inclu- 
sion in the enumeration. Prior to the enumeration, a list known 
as "specified farms" was prepared from records of the 1950 Cen- 
sus of Agriculture. Farms having unusually large agricultural 
operations were included in this list. During the enumeration a 
careful check was made to see that each place on the specifled- 
farm list was accounted for. This procedure helped to insure that 
units which could have a significant effect upon the census data 
were not omitted from the enumeration. (For a detailed ex- 
planation of specified farms, see page XII.) 

Some farm units other than specified farms also received special 
attention to insure complete coverage. Prior to the field enum- 
eration, lists were obtained of places known to be specializing in 
specific types of agricultural product inn, such as garbage-feeding 
operations, broiler operations, large turkey farms, livestock feed 
lots, cranberry bogs, and citrus groves. For some of these 
operations, the list represented a nationwide effort to insure 
coverage, while for others, only some of the intensive areas of 
production were given this special attention. These lists were 
prepared, in part, with the cooperation of the Agricultural Market- 
ing Service of the U. S. Department of Agriculture and State 
Agricultural Statisticians. During the enumeration, the enumer- 
ator was required to obtain a questionnaire for each place or 
otherwise satisfactorily account for each place on the list of 
specified farms or on other special lists. 

Some areas of the High Plains required special consideration 
since the usual enumeration procedure was complicated by the 
prevalence of nonresident operators and widely scattered tracts 
operated as one farm. In these areas a special mapping form 
was used to insure complete coverage. Land was checked off on 
the mapping form by section, township, and range as it was 
enumerated. This check map, designed for plotting sections 
within a township, was subdivided into 16 parts of 40 acres each. 
Enumerators were required to indicate on this form all land in 
farms that they enumerated. Cross references were made be- 
tween the questionnaire and the map. The enumerator identified 
land for a given questionnaire on his check map by writing the 
number identifying the questionnaire in each corresponding 40- 
acre square of the check map. The check map helped the enum- 
erator and, subsequently, the crew leader and other personnel 
reviewing the enumerator's work to determine whether the cov- 
erage of the enumeration district was complete. This procedure 
was used in all of North Dakota and South Dakota and selected 
counties in Colorado, Kansas, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, 
and Oklahoma. In general, the areas for which such maps were 
used corresponded with the major wheat-producing sections with 
low rainfall. 



A special supplementary questionnaire was used in approxi- 
mately 900 counties in the South. This questionnaire, designated 
the Landlord-Tenant Questionnaire, aided in the enumeration 
of cropper and other tenant farms which were parts of larger 
landholdings. This additional form was completed when two 
or more agriculture questionnaires were needed for a landhold- 
ing. Since it called for the name and agricultural operations of 
each tenant on the landholding, the procedure enabled an enum- 
erator to determine that all operations were reported completely 
and only once. The Enumerator's Record Book, used in these 
selected southern counties, differed from that used elsewhere. 
The southern version helped the enumerator to identify the land- 
holdings for which this supplementary landlord-tenant form was 
required. 

Crew leaders, in supervising enumerators, began reviewing 
questionnaires, maps, and other forms and checking the enum- 
erator's work for completeness of coverage and quality almost 
as soon as the enumeration was started. The crew leader and 
his enumerators were required to make the records of their 
respective areas as accurate and as complete as possible. 

While assembling records, the field processing offices also made 
certain checks. Although these offices performed no detailed 
editing of questionnaires, some steps were taken to detect 
enumeration districts in which the enumerator's work was not 
fully satisfactory, especially in regard to coverage. The 26 proc- 
essing offices were given a form, for each county, which contained 
data from the 1950 Census for the number of farms and land 
in farms. Where possible, this form gave the 1950 comparative 
data for the enumeration districts or for the minor civil divisions 
comprising each county. For most counties, it was possible to 
furnish, at the county level, an additional check figure. This 
figure was the acreage of one of the following crops : wheat, corn, 
cotton, tobacco, or rice. In most instances, these check figures 
represented measured acreages (before harvest) as determined 
by the Commodity Stabilization Service of the U. S. Department 
of Agriculture. By checking totals for the enumeration dis- 
tricts with these check data, it was possible to determine and 
remedy obvious underenumeratlon before records were released 
from field processing offices. The 1954 totals for the county, 
together with the check data, were sent to the Washington office 
for review and approval before the enumeration was considered 
acceptable. 

After the canvass of an enumeration district was completed, 
the supervising crew leader collected the questionnaires and other 
records from the enumerator and sent them to the processing 
office for his area. The processing offices made some checks on 
the enumeration in each enumeration district. In this checking, 
emphasis was placed upon preparation of payrolls, completeness 
of coverage, and the correct application of the sampling pro- 
cedure. 

The final operations for the agricultural census were handled 
in central offices. The Washington office was the focal point 
of these activities ; but, for the first time, some of the agricultural 
census operations were decentralized into areas outside of Wash- 
ington. Census operations offices were established at Detroit, 
Michigan and Pittsburg, Kansas. 

Upon their release from field processing offices, records were 
transferred to the two Census operations offices. Although 
there were exceptions, in general, records from the Northern and 
Northeastern States were sent to the Detroit office and those 
from Southern and Western States were sent to Pittsburg, Kansas. 
At these offices, questionnaires were edited and coded and the 
information was entered on punch cards for tabulation. 

In the operations offices, the checking, editing, and coding were 
performed for individual agriculture questionnaires. The check- 
ing consisted of seeing (1) that the questionnaires were com- 
pletely filled out; (2) that the acreage of individual crops har- 
vested was in reasonable agreement with the acreage of cropland 
harvested when 100 or more acres of cropland harvested were 



XII 



UNITED STATES CENSUS OF AGRICULTURE: 1954 



reported; (3) that the acres of land classified according to use 
accounted for the entire farm acreage for farms having 200 acres 
or more; (4) that the total of the acreage for the various uses of 
corn, sorghum, soybeans, cowpeas, and peanuts was in reasonable 
agreement with the total acreage reported for all purposes for 
each of these crops ; (5) that the age and sex breakdown for cattle, 
hogs, and sheep added to approximately the total number of such 
animals of all ages ; and (0) that all entries for related items were 
reasonably consistent. Editing consisted of the identification and 
withdrawal of questionnaires filled for places not qualifying as 
farms; the selection of questionnaires with entries of unusually 
large size for review by the technical staff ; the selection of groups 
of questionnaires with common reporting errors in an individual 
enumeration district for referral to technical personnel for 
review ; and the correction of obvious inconsistencies, such as 
reporting in an incorrect unit, or reporting in an improper place 
on the questionnaire. Coding consisted of entering code numbers 
for crops for which there were no separate inquiries on the ques- 
tionnaire, for color and tenure of operator, and for irrigation : 
and, for a sample of farms, of entering codes for economic class of 
farm and type of farm. Entries determined by the technical staff 
to be in error were corrected on the basis of relationships existing 
on nearby farms or, if the entries were large, on the basis of 
correspondence with the farm operator. In case of information 
missing for a group of questions, estimates were prepared on the 
basis of adjacent questionnaires for farms with similar opera- 
tions and, in some cases, on the basis of information obtained by 
mail from farm oi>erators. When estimates were made, letters 
were mailed to the farm oi>erators to verify the information and, 
if the estimates were not in reasonable agreement with the infor- 
mation contained in the replies, the entries were corrected before 
the tabulations were made. 

After punch cards were prepared, the punch cards, together 
with records containing the corresponding basic data, were for- 
warded to the Washington office for tabulation. Once on punch 
cards, the data were sorted, listed, or otherwise handled mechani- 
cally to facilitate making final checks and to obtain totals. One 
of the initial and primary steps in the machine handling of the 
punch cards was to separate those cards which lacked necessary 
information, those on which the punched data were inconsistent 
or impossible, and those on which the relationships were possible 
but the data were of such magnitude that a further review of the 
individual questionnaires was warranted. These cards contain- 
ing questionable data or lacking data were examined, checked to 
the agriculture questionnaires, and corrected, if necessary, before 
the tabulations were made. 

Finally, tabulations were examined from the standpoint of 
over-all reasonableness and consistency. This examination re- 
quired the judgment of specialists and was the primary respon- 
sibility of senior Census staff members. However, qualified State 
personnel of the Agricultural Marketing Service, U. S. Department 
of Agriculture, assisted in examining the data, especially those 
for crops and livestock, evaluating the results, and calling atten- 
tion to the situations for which further checking was necessary. 

DEFINITIONS AND EXPLANATIONS 

Specified farms. — "Specified farms" refers to the larger farms 
that were selected for special handling during the enumeration 
and during the processing of the agriculture questionnaires. 
Although the criteria for their selection have varied since this 
technique was first used in the 1945 Census of Agriculture, the 
basic purposes for employing this technique have not changed. 
One purpose for using a list of specified farms was to help to 
get a complete enumeration. 

The criteria for selecting specified farms were kept as simple as 
possible in order to facilitate the work of enumeration. In most 
States, only one item was considered in classifying farms as "speci- 
fied." The following are the criteria used for the 1954 Census: 



Criteria Area 

Land in the farm — 1,000 acres 

or more All States 

Cropland harvested : 

200 acres or more Florida 

500 acres or more Michigan, Minnesota, 

N. W. Missouri, Wisconsin 
Irrigated cropland harvested : 

200 acres or more Arizona, California, Louisiana 

Cattle and calves : 

100 or more Alabama, Mississippi, 

N. W. Missouri 

200 or more Louisiana 

Milk cows : 

100 or more Arizona, California, Florida 

Chickens sold : 

70,000 or more Delaware, Maryland, West Vir- 
ginia 
Occasionally, a farm which did not meet any of the criteria 
chosen, but which bulked large in respect to some other farm 
characteristics, had to be treated as a specified farm to reduce its 
effect on the results based on a sample of farms. 

In terms of total agricultural production, the operators of 
specified farms account for a significant part of the total produc- 
tion. For example, in the 1950 Census, 71,328 farms (then desig- 
nated "large" farms) were handled on a special basis. Although 
this number was only 1.3 percent of all farms, these "large" farms 
accounted for 17.3 percent of the value of all farm products sold 
and 33.1 percent of all land in farms. The criteria used for estab- 
lishing the group of specified farms for special handling in the 
1954 Census resulted in more than twice as many farms (147,000 
in the 1954 Census as compared with 72,000 in 1950) being given 
special attention. 

General Farm Information 

Date of enumeration. — The enumeration of the 1954 Census of 
Agriculture was made during the latter part of 1954. In the 
1950 Census the starting date for the enumeration was April 1. 
The 1954 Census beginning dates were varied by areas or States, 
ranging from October 4 to November S. In general, the varied 
starting dates were based upon ( 1 ) selecting dates late enough 
for the enumeration to follow the harvesting of the bulk of im- 
portant crops, (2) setting the dates early enough to avoid unde- 
sirable weather and travel conditions during the enumeration, and 
(3) arranging for the enumeration to be substantially completed 
prior to customary dates when farm operators move from one 
farm to another. The average date of enumeration for the 1954 
Census for each county is given in County Table 7, and the per- 
centage of farms enumerated by various dates for the State and 
the date or dates for the starting of the enumeration are given 
in State Table 11. 

Information for inventory items is based on the situation as of 
the actual day of enumeration. Data on acreage and quantity 
of crops harvested are for the crop year 1954. Data on sales of 
crops relate to crops harvested in the year 1954 regardless of when 
sold ; data on sales of livestock products relate to the production 
and sales during the calendar year 1954. Since the period to 
be included was not yet completed for some items at the time of 
enumeration, special emphasis was placed upon including accurate 
estimates for such items for the remainder of the period. For 
example, the question relating to dairy products stated, "Be sure 
to include dairy products which you will sell before January 1, 
1955." 

A farm. — For the 1954 and the 1950 Censuses of Agriculture, 
places of 3 or more acres were counted as farms if the annual 
value of agricultural products, exclusive of home-garden products, 
amounted to $150 or more. The agricultural products could have 
been either for home use or for sale. Places of less than 3 acres 
were counted as farms only if the annual value of sales of agri- 
cultural products amounted to $150 or more. Places for which 
the value of agricultural products for 1954 was less than these 
minima because of crop failure or other unusual conditions, and 



INTRODUCTION 



XIII 



places operated at the time of the census for the first time were 
counted as farms if normally they could be expected to produce 
these minimum quantities of agricultural products. 

All the land under the control of one person or partnership 
was included as one farm. Control may have been through 
ownership, or through lease, rental, or cropping arrangement. 

For the 1954 Census, enumerators were instructed to obtain 
an agriculture questionnaire for all places that the operator con- 
sidered a farm and for all places having during 1954 (1) any 
hogs, cattle, sheep, or goats; (2) any crops such as corn, oats, 
hay, or tobacco; (3) 20 or more chickens, turkeys, and geese; 

(4) 20 or more fruit trees, grapevines, and planted nut trees; or 

(5) any vegetables, berries, or nursery or greenhouse products 
grown for sale. Thus, agriculture questionnaires were filled for 
more places than those qualifying as farms. 

The determination as to which reports were to be included in 
the tabulations as farms was made during the central office 
processing of questionnaires. 

For the 1945 and earlier censuses of agriculture, the definition of 
a farm was somewhat more inclusive. Census enumerators were 
provided with the definition of a farm and were instructed to fill 
reports only for those places which met the criteria. From 1925 
to 1945, farms for census purposes included places of 3 or more 
acres on which there were agricultural operations, and places 
of less than 3 acres with agricultural products for home use or 
for sale with a value of $250 or more. For places of 3 or more 
acres, no minimum quantity of agricultural production was re- 
quired for purposes of enumeration : for places of under 3 acres 
all the agricultural products valued at $250 or more may have 
been for home use and not for sale. The only reports excluded 
from the tabulations were those taken in error and those with 
very limited agricultural production, such as only a small home 
garden, a few fruit trees, a very small flock of chickens, etc. In 
1945, reports for places of 3 acres or more with limited agricul- 
tural operations were retained if there were 3 or more acres of 
cropland and pasture, or if the value of products in 1944 amounted 
to $150 or more when there was less than 3 acres of cropland 
and pasture. 

Because of changes in price level, the $250 limit for value of 
products for farms under 3 acres resulted in the inclusion of 
Varying numbers of farms in the several censuses prior to 1950. 

The change in the definition of a farm in 1950, and continued 
In 1954, resulted in a decrease in the number of farms as compared 
with earlier censuses, especially in the number of farms of 3 or 
more acres in size. Places of 3 or more acres with a value of 
agricultural products of less than $150 were not counted as farms 
In the 1954 and 1950 Censuses. In some cases, these places would 
have been counted as farms if the criteria used in 1954 and 1950 
had been the same as those used in previous censuses. The change 
in the definition of a farm had no appreciable effect on the totals 
for livestock or crops, for the places affected by this change 
ordinarily accounted for less than 1 percent of the total for a 
county or State. 

There are two figures published for the number of farms for 
each county in 1954. One is an actual count of all farms enumer- 
ated, and the other is an estimate based upon the number of 
sample farms multiplied by 5, plus the number of specified farms. 
In almost every county, the actual number of farms and the esti- 
mated number of farms differ. Because of sampling variability, 
the selection of the sample of farms seldom resulted in the in- 
clusion of exactly 20 percent of the non-specified farms. The 
number of farms in the sample in a county was accepted if this 
number was within predetermined limits. The counties that were 
not acceptable were adjusted to bring the number of sample farms 
within the predetermined limits. 

Therefore, the actual number of farms in the sample is more or 
less than 20 percent in most instances. Similarly, the estimated 
total for information obtained for the sample of farms may be 
slightly more or slightly less than the totals which would have 



been obtained if the data had been tabulated for all farms. 
Therefore, occasionally the estimated number of farms reporting 
for some items may be greater than the total number of farms 
enumerated. The estimated number of farms is shown in the 
tables so that estimates based on the farms in the sample can be 
related to the estimated number of farms rather than to the actual 
number of farms. 

Enumeration of land located in more than one county. — Land in 
an individual farm may be located in two or more couijties. In 
such case, the entire farm was enumerated in only one county. 
If the farm operator lived on the farm, the farm was enumerated 
in the county in which the farm operator lived. If the farm 
operator did not live on the farm, the figures for the farm were 
included in the county in which the farm headquarters was lo- 
cated. If there was any question as to the location of the head- 
quarters of the farm, the farm was included in the county in 
which most of the land was located. 

Farm operator.— A "farm operator" is a person who operates a 
farm, either performing the labor himself or directly supervising 
it. He may be an owner, a hired manager, or a tenant, renter, or 
sharecropper. If he rents land to others or has land cropped 
for him by others, he is listed as the operator of only that land 
which he retains. In the case of a partnership, only one partner 
was included as the operator. The number of farm operators 
is considered the same as the number of farms. 

Farms reporting or operators reporting. — Figures for farms re- 
porting or operators reporting, based on a tabulation of all farms, 
represent the number of farms, or farm operators, for which the 
specified item was reported. For example, if there were 1,922 
farms in a county and only 1,465 had chickens over 4 months old 
on hand, the number of farms reporting chickens would be 1,465. 
The difference between the total number of farms and the number 
of farms reporting an item represents the number of farms not 
having that item, provided the inquiry was answered completely 
for all farms. 

For some of the items, such as the residence of the operator, for 
which reports were to have been obtained for all farms, figures 
are given for the number of farms not reporting. The number 
of farms, or operators, not reporting indicates the extent of the 
incompleteness of the reporting for the item. 

Figures for farms reporting or operators reporting, based on a 
tabulation for only a sample of farms, represent the total esti- 
mated from the sample, not the actual number of farms or 
operators reporting. 

Land owned, rented, and managed. — The land to be included in 
each farm was determined by asking the number of acres owned, 
the acres rented from others or worked on shares for others, and 
the acres rented to others or worked on shares by others. The 
acres in the farm were obtained by adding the acres owned and 
acres rented from others or worked on shares for others, and sub- 
tracting the acres rented to others or worked on shares by others. 
In case of a managed farm, the person in charge was asked the 
total acreage managed for his employer. The acreage that was 
rented to others or cropped by others was subtracted from the 
total managed acreage. 

For 1954 and 1950, the figures for land owned, land rented 
from others, and land managed for others include land rented 
to others by farm operators. In earlier censuses, the enumerator 
was instructed to include all land rented from others and to ex- 
clude all land rented to others. Thus, he recorded only that 
portion of the acreage owned and the acreage rented from others 
which was retained by the farm operator. For prior censuses, 
the land included in each farm was essentially the same as that 
included for the 1954 and 1950 Censuses. 

Land owned. — Land owned includes all land that the operator 
or his wife, or both, hold under title, purchase contract, home- 
stead law, or as one of the heirs, or as a trustee of an 
undivided estate. 

Land rented from others. — Land rented from others includes 
land worked on shares for others, and land used rent free, 



XIV 



UNITED STATES CENSUS OF AGRICULTURE: 1954 



as well as all land rented or leased under other arrangements. 
Grazing land used under government permit was not included. 

Land rented to others. — Many farm operators rent land to 
others. For the most part, the land rented to others represents 
agricultural land but it also includes tracts rented for resi- 
dential or other purposes. When land is leased, rented, or 
cropped on shares, the tenant or cropper is considered the farm 
operator even though his landlord may exercise supervision 
over his operations. The landlord is considered as operating 
only that portion of the land not assigned to tenants or croppers. 

land area. — The approximate total land area reported for 1954 
for States and counties is, in general, the same as that reported 
for the 1950, 1945, and 1940 Censuses. Changes since 1940 rep- 
resent changes in boundary, actual changes in land area due to 
the construction of reservoirs, etc. The figures for 1940 repre- 
sent a complete remeasurement of the United States and, there- 
fore, may differ from the figures shown for earlier censuses. 

land in farms. — The acreage designated "land in farms" in- 
cludes considerable areas of land not actually under cultivation 
and some land not used for pasture or grazing. All woodland 
and wasteland owned by farm operators, or included in tracts 
rented from others, is included as land in farms unless such land 
was held for other than agricultural purposes, or unless the 
acreage of such land held by a farm operator was unusually 
large. If a place had 1,000 or more acres of land not being used 
for agricultural purposes and less than 10 percent of the total 
acreage in the place was used for agricultural purposes, the non- 
agricultural land in excess of the number of acres used for agri- 
cultural purposes was excluded from the farm area. In applying 
this rule, land used for crops, for pasture, or grazing, and land 
rented to others were considered to be land for agricultural 
purposes. On the other hand, land was defined as nonagricul- 
tural when it was woodland not pastured, or in house and barn 
lots, roads, lanes, ditches, or wasteland. The procedure used 
in 1950 for excluding unusually large acreages of nonagricultural 
land differed slightly from the one used for the current census. 
In 1950, adjustments were made in places of 1,000 acres or more 
(5,000 acres or more in the 17 Western States) if less than 10 
percent of the total acreage was used for agricultural purposes. 

Except for open range and grazing land used under govern- 
ment permit, all grazing land was to be included as land in farms. 
Land used rent free was to be included as land rented from 
others. Grazing lands operated by grazing associations were to 
be reported in the name of the manager in charge. All land in 
Indian reservations used for growing crops or grazing livestock 
was to be included. Land in Indian reservations not reported by 
individual Indians or not rented to non-Indians was to be re- 
ported in the name of the cooperative group using the land. Thus, 
in some instances the entire Indian reservation was reported 
as one farm. 

Land in farms according to use. — Land in farms was classified 
according to the use made of it in 1954. The classes of land are 
mutually exclusive, i. e., each acre of land was included only 
once even though it may have had more than one use during the 
year. 

The classes are as follows : 

Cropland harvested. — This includes land from which crops 
were harvested; land from which hay (including wild hay) 
was cut ; and land in small fruits, orchards, vineyards, nurser- 
ies, and greenhouses. Land from which two or more crops 
were reported as harvested was to be counted only once. 

The enumerator was instructed to check the figure for crop- 
land harvested for each farm by adding the acreages of the In- 
dividual crops reported and subtracting the acres of land from 
which two crops were harvested. This procedure was repeated 
during the central office editing process for farms with 100 or 
more acres of cropland harvested. 

If the harvested cropland was used for other purposes, either 
before or after the harvest of a crop, the enumerator was 
specifically instructed to report the acreage only under crop- 
land harvested. 



Cropland used only for pasture. — In the 1954 and 1950 Cen- 
suses, the enumerator's instructions stated that rotation pasture 
and all other cropland that was used only for pasture were to 
be included under this class. No further definition of crop- 
land pastured was given the farm operator or enumerator. 
Permanent open pasture may, therefore, have been included 
under this item or under "other pasture," depending on whether 
the enumerator or farm operator considered it as cropland. 

The figures for 1945 and earlier censuses are not entirely 
comparable with those for the last two censuses. For 1945, the 
figures include only cropland used solely for pasture in 1944 
that had been plowed within the preceding seven yeats. The 
figures for this item, for the Censuses of 1940. 1935, and 1925, 
are more nearly comparable with those for the Censuses of 
1954 and 1950, as they include land pastured that could have 
been plowed and used for crops without additional clearing, 
draining, or irrigating. 

Cropland not harvested and not pastured. — This item includes 
idle cropland, land in soil-improvement crops only, land on 
which all crops failed, land seeded to crops for harvest after 
1954, and cultivated summer fallow. 

In the Western States, this class was subdivided to show 
separately the acres of cultivated summer fallow. In these 
States, the acreage not in cultivated summer fallow represents 
largely crop failure. There are very few counties in the 
Western States in which there is a large acreage of idle crop- 
land or in which the growing of soil-improvement crops is an 
important use of the land. 

In the States other than the Western States, this general 
class was subdivided to show separately the acres of idle crop- 
land (not used for crops or for pasture in 1954). In these 
States, the incidence of crop failure is usually low. It was 
expected that the acreage figure that excluded idle land would 
reflect the acreage in soil-improvement crops. However, the 
1954 crop year was one of low rainfall in many Eastern and 
Southern States and, therefore, in these areas the acreage of 
cropland not harvested and not pastured includes more land 
on which all crops failed than would usually be the case. 

Cultivated summer fallow. — This item includes cropland 
that was plowed and cultivated but left unseeded for several 
months to control weeds and conserve moisture. No land 
from which crops were harvested in 1954 was to be included 
under this item. 

Woodland pastured. — This includes all woodland that was 
used for pasture or grazing. The questionnaire contained the 
following instruction : "Include as woodland all wood lots and 
timber tracts and cutover land with young trees which have 
or will have value as wood or timber." No definition of wood- 
land was given in 1950 to either farm operators or Census 
enumerators except an instruction to enumerators not to in- 
clude brush pasture as woodland. Some of the changes in wood- 
land acreages from one census to another may merely represent 
differences in interpretation of the meaning of woodland. 

Woodland not pastured. — This includes nil woodland that was 
not used for pasture or grazing. Unusually large tracts of 
timberland reported as woodland not pastured were excluded 
from the tabulations of land in farms when it was evident that 
such land was held primarily for nonagricultural purposes. 
The definition for woodland, as stated above, was used also 
for enumerating woodland not pastured. 

Other pasture (not cropland and not woodland). — This in- 
cludes rough and brush land pastured and any other land 
pastured that the respondent did not consider as either wood- 
land or cropland. The figures for 1954 and 1950 are comparable 
but for 1945 all nonwoodland pasture not plowed within the 
preceding 7 years was included. For the 1940 Census and 
earlier years, the figures are more nearly comparable with those 
for 1954 and 1950, except that the item may be somewhat less 
inclusive since land that could have been plowed and used for 
crops without additional clearing, draining, or irrigating was 
classified as plowable pasture (shown as cropland used only 
for pasture in the tables) . 

Improved pasture. — This item includes land in "other pas- 
ture" on which one or more of the following practices had 
been used : Liming, fertilizing, seeding to grasses or legumes, 
irrigating, draining, or controlling weeds and brush. The 
question on improved pasture was included in 1954 for the 
first time. 

Other land (house lots, roads, wasteland, etc.). — This item in- 
cludes house lots, barn lots, lanes, roads, ditches, and waste- 
land. It includes all land that does not belong under any of 
the other land-use classes. 






INTRODUCTION 



xv 



In addition to the complete classification of land in farms ac- 
cording to use, the tables also present data for three summary 
classifications as follows : 

Cropland, total. — This includes cropland harvested, cropland 
used only for pasture, and cropland not harvested and not 
pastured. 

Land pastured, total. — This includes cropland used only for 
pasture, woodland pastured, and other pasture (not cropland 
and not woodland). 

Woodland, total. — This includes woodland pastured and wood- 
land not pastured. 

Valne of land and buildings. — The value to be reported was the 
approximate amount for which the land and the buildings on it 
would sell. This item was obtained for only a sample of the 
farms ; however, the value was not reported for all the farms 
comprising the sample. 

Many problems, not encountered in enumerating most agricul- 
tural items, are involved in obtaining farm real-estate values. 
Most enumerated items require the respondent to make a state- 
ment based upon fact. It may be the number and value of farm 
animals sold alive during the year or the number of lambs under 
1 year old on the place. In either case, only information as to 
activities during a specified period, or the situation as of a stated 
time, is required. This information is based upon actual trans- 
actions or existing conditions. But the estimation of the value 
of land and buildings is based largely upon opinion. In the event 
a farm had been recently purchased, answers could be based 
upon that experience. But many farms have not changed hands 
for many years, nor are they currently for sale. In such cases, 
farm operators may have no clear basis for estimating the value. 
In making an intelligent estimate, a respondent needs, first, to 
estimate the prevailing market value in the community. Sec- 
ondly, he must in some way add to or subtract from this base to 
allow for his farm's special characteristics. In many cases, a 
farm operator who would not sell his place under any circum- 
stances may be inclined to give a "market value" that is un- 
reasonably high. Some operators who had purchased their real 
estate during periods of relatively loir prieeg may give an esti- 
mate that is unduly influenced by that experience. Further- 
more, the extent of variation known to exist in real-estate values 
makes it difficult to establish checking procedures that will dis- 
close inaccurate estimates. 

Only average values of land and buildings- per farm and per 
acre are presented in this report. A total value of the land and 
buildings for States, geographic divisions, and the United States, 
will be presented in Volume II. 

Age of operator. — Farm operators were classified by age into 
six age groups. The average age of farm operators was calculated 
by dividing the total of ages of all farm operators reporting age 
by the number of farm operators reporting. 

Residence of farm operator. — Farm operators were classified by 
residence on the basis of whether or not they lived on the farm 
operated. Some of those not living on the farm operated lived 
on other farms. When a farm operator rented land from others 
or worked land on shares for others and had the use of a dwell- 
ing as part of the rental arrangement, the enumerator was in- 
structed to consider the dwelling a part of the farm operated. The 
dwelling assigned may have been on a tract other than that as- 
signed for crops. Since some farm operators live on their farms 
only a portion of the year, comparability of the figures for var- 
ious censuses may be affected to some extent by the date of the 
enumeration. In a few cases the enumerator failed to indicate 
the residence of the farm operator. Differences between the total 
number of farms and the number of farm operators by residence 
represent underreporting of this item. 

Years on present farm (year began operation of present farm). — 
The data on years on present farm and year began operation of 
present farm were secured on the basis of the inquiry, "When did 

you begin to operate this place? " The 

(Month) (Tear) 



time of year that farmers move is indicated by the month they 
began to operate their farms, as shown by a breakdown of the data 
for those farm operators who began to operate their present 
farms in the calendar years 1954 and 1953. The tabulation of 
years on present farm at each census is based on the calendar 
year the operator began operating his farm. Because of differ- 
ences in the date for various censuses, the figures are not fully 
comparable from one census to another. 

Off-farm work and other income. — Many farm operators receive 
a part of their income from sources other than the sale -of farm 
products from their farms. The 1954 Agriculture Questionnaire 
included several inquiries relating to work off the farm and non- 
farm income. These inquiries called for the number of days 
worked off the farm by the farm operator ; whether other members 
of the operator's family worked off the farm ; and whether the 
farm operator received income from other sources, such as sale 
of products from land rented out, cash rent, boarders, old age as- 
sistance, pensions, veterans' allowances, unemployment compen- 
sation, Interest, dividends, profits from nonfarm business, and 
help from other members of the operator's family. Another in- 
quiry asked whether the income of the operator and his family 
from off-farm work and other sources was greater than the total 
value of all agricultural products sold from the farm in 1954. 
Off-farm work was to include work at nonfarm jobs, businesses, 
or professions, whether performed on the farm premises or else- 
where ; also work on someone else's farm for pay or wages. Ex- 
change work was not to be included. 

The purposes of these four inquiries were (1) to obtain in- 
formation in regard to the extent that farm operators performed 
off-farm work and the relation of other nonfarm income to the 
value of farm products sold and (2) to provide a basis for the 
classification of farms by economic class (see Farms by eco- 
nomic class, page XXII). The intent of the inquiry in regard to 
whether or not a member of the family had a nonfarm job, and the 
inquiry regarding income of the farm operator from other non- 
farm sources, was to obtain more accurate replies to the inquiry 
regarding the relationship of the income from off-farm work and 
other sources to the total value of all agricultural products sold. 

Specified facilities and equipment. — Inquiries were made in 1954 
for a sample of farms to determine the presence or absence of 
selected items on each place such as (1) telephone, (2) piped run- 
ning water, (3) electricity, (4) television set, (5) home freezer, 
(6) electric pig brooder, (7) milking machine, and (8) power feed 
grinder. Such facilities or equipment were to be counted even 
though temporarily out of order. Piped running water was de- 
fined as water piped from a pressure system or by gravity flow 
from a natural or artificial source. The enumerator's instruc- 
tions stated that pig brooders were to include those heated by an 
electric heating element, by an infra-red or heat bulb, or by or- 
dinary electric bulbs. They could be homemade. 

The number of selected types of other farm equipment was 
also obtained for a sample of farms. The selected kinds of farm 
equipment to be reported were (1) grain combines (for harvest- 
ing and threshing grains or seeds in one operation) ; (2) corn 
pickers; (3) pick-up balers (stationary ones not to be reported) : 
(4) field forage harvesters (for field chopping of silage and 
forage crops) ; (5) motortrucks; (6) wheel tractors (other than 
garden) ; (7) garden tractors; (8) crawler tractors (tracklaying, 
caterpillar); (9) automobiles; and (10) artificial ponds, reser- 
voirs, and earth tanks. 

Wheel tractors were to include homemade tractors but were 
not to include implements having built-in power units such as 
self-propelled combines, powered buck rakes, etc. "Pick-up" 
and truck-trailer combinations were to be reported as motor- 
trucks. School buses were not to be reported, and jeeps and 
station wagons were to be included as motortrucks or automo- 
biles, depending on whether used for hauling farm products or 
supplies, or as passenger vehicles. 

Classification of farms by class of work power. — Farms were 
grouped by class of work power on the basis of whether horses, 



XVI 



UNITED STATES CENSUS OF AGRICULTURE: 1954 



mules, or tractors (wheel or crawler, but not garden) were 
reported. This classification does not present a complete picture 
of the work power used on all farms. For some farms, all the 
work power may be furnished by the landlord ; and for some farms, 
all the work power may be hired. Thus, farms hiring all of the 
work power from others and those having it furnished are shown 
as having no work power, unless the work animals or tractors 
were kept on the tenant-operated tract. 

Since the number of tractors was obtained for only a sample 
of farms, the number of farms by class of work power represents 
an estimate. 

Farm labor. — The farm-labor inquiries for 1954, made on a 
sample basis, called for the number of persons doing farm work 
or chores on the place during a specified calendar week. Since 
starting dates of the 1954 enumeration varied by areas or States, 
the calendar week to which the farm-labor inquiries related 
varied also. The calendar week was September 26-October 2 or 
October 24-30. States with the September 26-October 2 calendar 
week were : Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, 
Idaho, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Massachusetts, 
Michigan, Minnesota, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hamp- 
shire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Dakota, Okla- 
homa, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Ten- 
nessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, Washington, Wisconsin, and 
Wyoming. States with the October 24-30 calendar week were : 
Alabama, Arkansas, Delaware, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, 
Maryland, Mississippi, Missouri, North Carolina, Ohio, South 
Carolina, Virginia, and West Virginia. Farm work was to include 
any work, chores, or planning necessary to the operation of the 
farm or ranch business. Housework, contract construction work, 
and labor involved when equipment was hired (custom work) 
were not to be included. 

The farm labor information was obtained in three parts: 
(1) Operators working, (2) unpaid members of the operator's 
family working, and (3) hired persons working. Operators were 
considered as working if they worked 1 or more hours ; unpaid 
members of the operator's family, if they worked 15 or more 
hours; and hired persons, if they worked any time during the 
calendar week specified. Instructions contained no specifications 
regarding age of the persons working. 

Data shown for earlier censuses are not fully comparable with 
those for 1954, primarily because of differences in the period to 
which the data relate. The data for 1954 were purposely related 
to a period of peak farm employment. During 1950 the labor in- 
quiries were related to the calendar week preceding the actual 
enumeration. Although starting dates were identical in all States 
(April 1, 1950), several weeks were required to complete the field 
work. Therefore, the calendar week preceding the enumeration 
was not the same for all farms. For the 1945 and 1935 Censuses, 
the number of farm workers related to the first week in January. 
The data for 1940 related to the last week in March. Tn 1945, 
1940, and 1935, only persons working the equivalent of two or more 
days during the specified week were to be included. In 1945 and 
1940, only workers 14 years old and over were to be included. In 
1935, as in 1954 and 1950, there was no specification regarding 
the age of the farm workers. No instructions were issued to 
include farm chores as farm work in 1940 and 1935 Censuses. 

In censuses prior to 1954, farm-labor data were not always 
satisfactorily reported when the specified week for reporting the 
number of persons employed did not immediately precede the 
week during which the actual enumeration was made. When the 
week, for which a report for the number of persons employed was 
required, was several weeks before the week of enumeration, the 
farm operator or the enumerator often reported the highest num- 
ber of persons employed during the year. When it was obvious 
that the data were not correctly reported, adjustments were made 
to make the data reflect more nearly the situation during the 
specified week. Because of demand for the data, the information 
on number of persons working on farms, for the 1954 Census, 
relates to a specified week. In some qases, this specified week was 



several weeks before the week of actual enumeration. However, 
few adjustments were made in the data for 1954 even though 
there were indications that there was incorrect reporting or that 
the report may have referred to a week other than the week 
specified. 

Regular and seasonal workers. — Hired persons working on the 
farm during the specified week were classed as "regular" 
workers if the period of actual or expected employment was 150 
days or more during the year, and as "seasonal" workers if the 
period of actual or expected employment was less than 150 days. 
If the period of expected employment was not reported, the 
period of employment was estimated for the individual farm 
after taking into account such items as the basis of payment, 
wage rate, expenditures for labor in 1954, and the type and 
other characteristics of the farm. 

Hired workers by basis of payment. — Hired persons were also 
classified according to the basis of payment. The question- 
naire called for the numbers of hired workers paid on a monthly 
basis, on a weekly basis, on a daily basis, on an hourly basis, 
and on a piecework basis. If the basis of payment was not re- 
ported for any of the hired workers, the missing information 
was supplied. 

Wage rate and hours worked. — The rate of pay (except for 
workers on a piecework basis) and the hours that workers were 
expected to work to earn this pay (except for workers on hourly 
basis or on piecework basis) were asked for each class of 
worker. For 1954, the data include estimates of hours worked 
and wage rates for questionnaires incomplete for either of these 
items. Estimates were based upon relationships existing on 
nearby farms of similar size and type. Data for 1950 for hours 
worked and wage rates were restricted to farms reporting both 
wage rates and hours worked. 

Fertilizer and lime. — The 1954 questionnaires contain inquiries 
on the tonnage and cost of fertilizer and liming material and 
the acreage on which they were used during the calendar year 
1954. Fertilizer and lime used on the place were to be included 
regardless of whether the landowner, tenant, or both paid for 
them. Fertilizer was to include only commercial fertilizer or 
fertilizing material. No specific mention was made of basic slag. 
It was thought that this byproduct of steel production would be 
considered as a fertilizing material. Barnyard manure, straw, 
refuse materials, and soil conditioners were to be excluded. Lime 
or liming material was to include ground limestone, hydrated and 
burnt lime, marl, oyster shells, etc. No mention was made of 
gypsum but this product was excluded in the processing when 
the entries for such were detected. Lime used for sprays or 
sanitation purposes was to be omitted. 

Acres on which purchased materials were used were to be re- 
ported for both lime and fertilizer. In case fertilizer was applied 
to the same crop more than once in 1954, instructions were to 
report acres of land only once but to report the total tonnage used. 
The acres fertilized and tons applied were obtained separately for 
selected crops. The selected crops varied by regions. This ar- 
rangement made it possible to obtain data for crops most com- 
monly fertilized in the region. 

For some counties, the tonnage of lime shown in the table may 
be less than the tonnage reported for the Agricultural Conserva- 
tion Program. In some cases, the difference may arise because of 
sampling error and in other cases, it may be the result of under- 
reporting by farm operators. Many of the differences disappear 
when the data are presented for larger areas. 

In the South, some landlords, who conducted some farming 
operations themselves, reported for their operations fertilizer and 
lime paid for wholly or in part by them for use on their tenant- 
operated land. The tenants may also have reported the fertilizer 
and lime. During the editing procedure such reports, when 
detected, were adjusted to prevent duplication in the reports for 
fertilizer and lime by landlords and their tenants. 

Specified farm expenditures. — The 1954 Census obtained data for 
selected farm expense items in addition to those for fertilizer 
and lime. The expenditures were to include the total specified 
expenditures for the place whether made by landlord, tenant, 
or both.

Expenditures for machine hire were to include any labor in- 
cluded in the cost of such machine hire. Machine hire refers to 
custom machine work such as tractor hire, threshing, combining, 
silo filling, baling, ginning, plowing, and spraying. If part of 
the farm products was given as pay for machine hire, the value 
of the products traded for this service was to be included in the 
amount of expenditures reported. The cost of trucking, freight, 
and express was not to be included. 

Expenditures for hired labor were to include only cash pay- 
ments. Expenditures for housework, custom work, and contract 
construction work were not to be included. 

Expenditures for feed were to include the expenditures for 
pasture, salt, condiments, concentrates, and mineral supplements, 
as well as those for grain, hay, and mill feeds. Expenditures for 
grinding and mixing feeds were also to be included. Payments 
made by a tenant to his landlord for feed grown on the land 
rented by the tenant were not to be included. 

Expenditures for gasoline and other petroleum fuel and oil 
were to include only those used for the farm business. Petroleum 
products used for the farmer's automobile for pleasure or used 
exclusively in the farm home for heating, cooking, and lighting 
were not to be included. 

Farm-mortgage debt. — Data on farm-mortgage debt will be con- 
tained in a special report (Part 5 of Volume III) to be issued in 
1956. This report will contain data only for States and larger 
geographic areas. 

Crops 

Crops harvested. — The agriculture questionnaire was organized 
to make possible the listing of acreage and quantity harvested for 
each crop. To facilitate the enumerator's work, specific crop 
questions were varied according to areas (usually each area com- 
prised a State or a group of States). Regionalizing question- 
naires made it possible to devote special attention to the more 
important crops for a given area and also to use the unit of 
measure that was in most common use in the area. 

In most instances, the harvested acreage that was reported 
for individual crops represents the area harvested for the 1954 
crop year. An exception was made for land in fruit orchards, 
vineyards, and planted nut trees : in this case the acreage repre- 
sents that in both bearing and nonbearing trees and vines as of 
the date of enumeration (usually October or November 1954). 
The acreage harvested for various crops is often less than the 
acreage planted. 

With three exceptions, citrus fruits, olives, and avocados, figures 
for quantity harvested represent the amount actually harvested 
during the 1954 crop year. Citrus fruit production was to be re- 
ported for the 1953-1954 marketing season (from the bloom of 
1953). Olive and avocado production for California related to 
the quantity harvested from the 1953 bloom (an instruction to 
enumerators referred to the marketing season which began 
October 1, 1953). In Florida, the avocado production period, 
according to the Enumerator's Instruction Book, was to include 
the quantity harvested from the 1953 bloom (the harvesting sea- 
son extending from July 1, 1953, to June 30, 1954). 

The unit of measure used for reporting the quantity harvested 
for some crops has varied, not only from State to State, but from 
census to census, to permit reporting in units of measure cur- 
rently in use. In the State and county tables, figures on quantity 
harvested for each crop are shown in the unit of measure appear- 
ing on the 1954 Agriculture Questionnaire. When required, data 
for earlier years were converted into units of measure differing 
from those which were used in the published reports for those 
years. 

Com. — The inquiries regarding corn acreage and quantity har- 
vested were not the same in all States. In areas where farmers 
frequently use units of measure such as baskets, barrels, etc., the 
questionnaire permitted the reporting of quantity harvested in 
bushels or in an alternative unit of measure. When alternative 



units of measure other than bushels (shelled basis) were reported 
on the questionnaire, the quantity was converted into bushels 
prior to tabulation. As in former censuses, farmers in certain 
areas had a tendency to report the quantity of corn harvested in 
terms of baskets of ear corn, barrels, or some unit other than 
bushels of corn on a shelled basis. Such reports, when detected, 
were corrected to represent the equivalent bushels of 70 pounds of 
ear corn or 56 pounds of shelled corn. 

Annual legumes. — Acres and quantity harvested for the most 
important uses of soybeans, cowpeas, and peanuts, as 'well as 
the total acreage grown for all purposes, were obtained for 
areas where these crops are grown extensively. The total acreage 
grown for all purposes includes some acreage not harvested as 
the acreage plowed under for green manure was included. In 
certain States, separate figures were obtained for the acres grown 
alone and the acres grown with other crops. For the 1954 Census, 
enumerators were instructed to report acres and value of sales 
for cowpeas harvested for green peas with vegetables harvested 
for sale. For 1949, the total acreage of vegetables harvested for 
sale, shown in State and county tables, includes the acres of 
cowpeas harvested for green peas for the following States: Ala- 
bama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, 
South Carolina, and Texas. However, for 1949 the number of 
farms reporting and the value of vegetables harvested for sale 
do not include farms reporting or the value of cowpeas harvested 
for green peas. 

Hay crops. — The tables contain data regarding the total acres 
of land from which hay was cut. Sorghum, soybean, cowpea, and 
peanut hays were excluded from this total as separate questions 
were provided in those States where these crops are important. 
The figures for total land from which hay was cut for 1954 were 
obtained by adding the acres of the various hay crops, including 
grass silage, for each county. The comparable figures for the 1950 
Census were obtained by an inquiry of the farm operator. Alfalfa 
hay includes any production which was dehydrated. The tonnage 
of alfalfa hay for dehydration (as well as that for other hays 
but not for grass silage) is given on a dry-weight basis. 

Enumerators and farmers were instructed to report the total 
quantity of hay harvested from all cuttings, but to report only 
once the acres of land from which more than one cutting was 
made. For 1954, alfalfa hay included alfalfa and alfalfa mix- 
tures. Likewise, clover and timothy hay included clover and 
timothy and mixtures of clover and grasses. For 1950, the agri- 
culture questionnaire contained instructions to report mixed hay 
under the kind of hay that made up the largest part of the mix- 
ture. The differences in the instructions for reporting mixed 
hays affect the comparability of the data for the 1954 and prior 
censuses. The kinds of hay to be reported under "Other hay" 
varied from State to State, and can be determined for a specific 
State by referring to the copy of the questionnaire in the 
Appendix. 

Clover seed, alfalfa, grass and other field seed crops. — The 1954 
questionnaire contained separate inquiries for a number of the 
field seed crops and provided a question on "other field seed 
crops" for the purpose of obtaining information for all minor field 
seed crops harvested. 

Irish potatoes and sweetpotatoes. — The 1954 Census inquiry for 
both Irish and sweet potatoes called for acres harvested and the 
quantity harvested. If less than 20 bushels (or 10 bags in speci- 
fied States) of Irish potatoes or if less than 20 bushels of sweet- 
potatoes were harvested, the enumerator was instructed to 
report the quantity harvested, but not the area harvested. This 
method of reporting was used in order to facilitate the enumera- 
tion of potatoes grown on small plots for home use. The pro- 
cedure and inquiries for both Irish potatoes and sweetpotatoes 
were essentially the same for 1950. Data for censuses prior to 
1950 are not entirely comparable with those for 1950 and 1954. 
Earlier censuses did not eliminate the acres of the small plot — 
home-use production of Irish potatoes and sweetpotatoes. There- 



XVIII 



UNITED STATES CENSUS OF AGRICULTURE: 1954 



fore, especially in counties or States where the production of 
potatoes is largely for home use, the data on acres for 1054 and 
1950 are not fully comparable with those for earlier censuses. 

Berries and other small fruits. — The questionnaire called for 
acreage and quantity harvested in 1954 for sale. Nonbearing 
areas and areas from which berries or fruits were not harvested 
for sale were not to be reported. Separate inquiries were carried 
on the questionnaire for such berries as strawberries, black- 
berries, and raspberries (tame) in States where production of 
these crops was important commercially. 

Tree fruits, nuts, and grapes. — For 1954, the number of trees or 
vines and the quantity harvested were not enumerated if there 
was a total of less than 20 fruit or nut trees and grapevines on 
the farm. For censuses prior to 1954, enumerators were in- 
structed to report the number of fruit or nut trees and grape- 
vines and the quantity harvested, regardless of how many trees 
or grapevines were on the farm. Because of this change in 
instructions, the data for 1954 are not fully comparable with 
those for prior censuses. In commercial fruit-producing counties, 
the change in instructions may have affected considerably the 
number of farms reporting, but had little effect on the number 
of trees or the quantity harvested. On the other hand, in counties 
where most of the fruit and nut trees and grapevines are in small 
plantings, largely for producing fruit or nuts for consumption on 
the farm, the change in instructions may have resulted in a reduc- 
tion not only in the number of farms reporting, but also in the 
number of fruit and nut trees and grapevines, as well as in the 
quantity harvested. 

For 1954, the acreage in fruit orchards, groves, vineyards, and 
planted nut trees was not enumerated if there were less than 20 
fruit or nut trees and grapevines on the farm. For the 1950 
Census, enumerators were instructed not to report the area in 
fruit orchards, groves, vineyards, and planted nut trees if the 
area was less than one-half acre. For censuses prior to 1950, 
enumerators were instructed to report the area in all orchards, 
vineyards, and planted nut trees regardless of size of the area. 
However, frequently enumerators did not report the area for 
small fruit plantings and home orchards. In areas where small 
fruit and nut plantings or home orchards comprise a considerable 
part of the total fruit and nut acreage, considerable change may 
be indicated from census to census in the acreage of land in fruit 
trees, planted nut trees, and grapevines because of differences in 
enumeration procedures or in the enumerators' application of the 
instructions. 

In the regional questionnaire for Arizona and California, the 
acreage in each individual fruit and nut crop was secured. 

The acreage in fruit and planted nut trees and grapevines does 
not usually include the acreage of wild pecans that were not 
planted. For Maine, the acreage in cropland harvested includes 
the acreage from which wild blueberries were harvested. 

The unit of measure used for the quantity of fruits, grapes, and 
nuts harvested varied from State to State. Tables in this report 
show the quantity harvested in the unit of measure appearing on 
the 1954 Agriculture Questionnaire. 

Nursery and greenhouse products. — The agriculture question- 
naire included three inquiries relating to horticultural-specialty 
crops. One called for acres and value of sales in 1954 of nursery 
products (trees, shrubs, vines, ornamentals, etc.). Another asked 
for the area grown under glass; area grown in the open ; and value 
of sales of cut flowers, potted plants, florist greens, and bedding 
plants. The third called for area grown under glass or in house; 
area grown in the open; and value of sales of vegetables grown 
under glass, flower seeds, vegetable seeds, vegetable plants, bulbs, 
and mushrooms. The inquiries in 1954 were essentially the same 
as those used in the 1950 Census. 

Value of crops harvested and value of crops sold. — The total 
value of crops harvested represents the value of all crops harvested 
during the crop year 1954. It includes the value of the part of 
the crop consumed on the farm and the value of the part of the 



crop used for seed on the farm, as well as the value of the part 
of the crop that was sold. 

Farmers were not asked to report the value of crops harvested. 
The values were calculated in the central office by multiplying the 
quantity harvested for each crop by the average price at which the 
crop was sold in the State. These State average prices were ob- 
tained cooperatively by the Agricultural Marketing Service, 
United States Department of Agriculture, and the Bureau of the 
Census. The prices are based on reports provided by a sample of 
farmers and dealers. However, average prices were not calculated 
for vegetables harvested for sale, nursery and greenhouse prod- 
ucts, and forest products. In the absence of the value of quan- 
tities harvested for these products, the value of sales which was 
obtained in the enumeration was used in calculating the total 
value of crops harvested. 

State Table 16 gives data for the value of that part of each 
crop sold. The questionnaire did not call for reports of sales 
(quantity sold or the value of sales) for all crops. Estimates of 
the quantities sold were made in the central office for those crops 
for which the quantity sold was not enumerated. (For the pro- 
cedure used in estimating the quantity of each crop sold, see 
Value of farm products sold, page XXIII.) For each crop, the 
quantity sold was multiplied by the average State price in order to 
obtain the value of the quantity sold. Enumerators and farmers 
were instructed to report the landlord's share as sold unless it 
was used for feed or seed on the place where it was produced. 

In 1950, the value of crops sold was obtained by inquiry of 
each farm operator during the enumeration. 

Forest products. — The forest products data obtained by the 
Census relate only to those products cut on farms. Commercial 
logging, timber operations, and forest products cut on places 
not counted as farms are excluded. Therefore, the data pub- 
lished do not show the total forestry output and income for a 
county or State. 

The questions included In the 1954 questionnaire were essen- 
tially the same as those for 1950. However, a change was made 
in the enumeration of the sales of standing timber. In 1950, a 
special question asked for "sales from standing timber," while in 
1954, instructions were to report any standing timber cut as saw- 
logs and veneer logs. 

Irrigation 

Irrigated land was defined as land to which water was applied 
by artificial means for agricultural purposes. Water applied by 
subirrigation was included as well as that applied to the surface. 
Irrigated land included land irrigated by a sprinkler system. 
Land flooded during high-water periods was to be considered as 
irrigated land only if water was purposely applied for agri- 
cultural purposes by means of dams, canals, or other works. 
Regulation of the "water table" by drainage works was not to be 
included as irrigation. 

There were two groups of irrigation inquiries used for the 
1954 Census. One group was used in the 17 Western States 
(Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Kansas, Montana, Ne- 
braska, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Oregon, 
South Dakota, Texas, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming) and in 
Arkansas, Florida, and Louisiana. The other group was used 
in the remaining 28 States. In the 17 Western States and Arkan- 
sas, Florida, and Louisiana, the agriculture questionnaire con- 
tained several inquiries regarding irrigation. These inquiries 
related to the area of irrigated land from which crops were 
harvested and the names of the crops for which the entire acreage 
harvested was irrigated in 1954. In all of these States except 
Arkansas and Louisiana, the area of irrigated pasture was also 
obtained. In the remaining States, the agriculture question- 
naire called for only the total acres irrigated in 1954. This 
acreage may have been used for harvested crops, soil-improvement 
crops, or for pasture. 

The inquiries relating to irrigation for the 1954 Census were 
essentially the same as those for the 1950 Census. However, in 



INTRODUCTION 



XIX 



1050, irrigated land from which no crop was harvested was in- 
cluded as irrigated land, while such acreage was not obtained in 
1954. 

Considerable data are published regarding irrigation in the 
17 Western States and Arakansas, Florida, and Louisiana. The 
following definitions apply to these States : 

Irrigated farms. — These are farms reporting land irrigated. 
Data on land in irrigated farms and on land in irrigated farms 
according to use include the entire acreage of land in these farms, 
whether irrigated or not. 

Land irrigated. — This relates only to that part of the land in 
irrigated farms to which water was applied. However, for 
Arkansas and Louisiana the total for irrigated land does not 
include land used solely for pasture or grazing. For the 17 
Western States and for Arkansas, Florida, and Louisiana, this 
total does not include irrigated cropland that was not harvested 
and not pastured. 

Irrigated land in farms according to use. — This classification 
provides data on the use of irrigated land in farms and Includes 
that part of the cropland harvested that was irrigated as well 
as that portion of the land pastured to which water was applied. 

Farms with all harvested crops irrigated. — These are all "irri- 
gated farms" on which all crops harvested were grown on irri- 
gated land. 

Irrigated crops harvested. — The data for irrigated crops har- 
vested include (1) the acreage of crops harvested on irrigated 
farms on which all harvested crops were irrigated and (2) the 
acreage of those crops which were wholly irrigated on farms 
where a part of, or all of, other harvested crops were not irrigated. 
Thus, the reported acreage in irrigated crops may not include the 
total acreage of each harvested crop grown on irrigated land, but 
the exclusions are minor. However, in the case of vegetables 
harvested for sale and orchard fruits and nuts, the data for farms 
reporting number of trees, value of sales, etc., relate only to those 
crops harvested on farms on which all crops were irrigated. 

LanD'Use and Conservation Practices 

Land in cover crops turned under for gTeen manure. — The data 
for this item represent land on which a cover crop was turned 
under in 1054 and another crop was planted for harvest after 1054. 
Such acreages were to be reported even though the succeeding 
crop may later have failed. This inquiry was not made in Ari- 
zona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Kansas, Montana, Nebraska. 
Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Oregon, South 
Dakota, Utah, Washington, Wyoming, and the western part of 
Texas. 

Stripcropping. — The data for stripcropping relates to the area 
of row crops or close-seeded crops that were grown in strips across 
the path of prevailing winds to prevent or reduce the blowing 
of topsoil. This question was included only in Colorado, Idaho, 
Kansas, Montana, Nebraska. Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, 
Oklahoma, Oregon, South Dakota, Utah, Washington, Wyoming, 
and the western part of Texas. 

Cropland used for grain or row crops farmed on the contour. — 
This is the area for all grain and row crops that were planted 
around the slope to maintain comparatively level rows instead of 
being planted in straight rows running up and down the slope. 

Livestock and Poultry 

The 1054 questionnaire called for an inventory of or for some 
phase of production for all the important kinds of farm animals 
and poultry. Respondents were asked for the numbers on hand 
on the day of enumeration. Livestock were to be enumerated on 
the place on which they were located, regardless of ownership. 
Livestock grazing in national forests, grazing districts, or on open 
range at the time of enumeration were to be reported for the farm 
or ranch to which they belonged. 

The time of the year at which livestock and poultry were 
enumerated influences greatly the resulting data. Therefore, the 
date of the enumeration needs to be considered when comparing 



1954 totals with those for corresponding items for the 1050 or 
prior censuses. The 1050 data represented a spring inventory 
(April 1, 1050) , while the current census provided a fall inventory. 
The 1954 enumeration came at a time of large scale movement 
of flocks and herds from one range to another, from ranch to 
feeder, and from farm or ranch to market. 

The censuses of agriculture beginning with 1020 and continuing 
through 1050 were taken as of either April 1 or January 1. The 
censuses taken in the years ending in "0" were taken as of April 
1, while the censuses taken in the years ending in "5" were taken 
as of January 1. An enumeration made in April results in a 
count that differs considerably from a count made in January. 
In most areas a large number of animals are born between 
January and April. On the other hand, a considerable number 
of older animals are sold or die during the 3-month period, 
January to April. In the range States, sheep and cattle are 
moved, with the change in season and grazing condition, from one 
locality, or country, to another. This movement may affect the 
comparability of data for counties and, in some cases, for States. 
The comparability of the data for the number of livestock and 
poultry has also been affected by changes in age groups and 
questionnaire inquiries from census to census. State Table 12 
presents a description of the various age and sex groups of live- 
stock and poultry for each census from 1020 to 1954. 

Milk cows; cows milked; milk sold. — Data on number of cows 
milked and milk production relate to the day preceding the 
enumeration. 

Questionnaires in 25 States, chiefly western and midwestern, 
provided three alternative units of measure for enumerators and 
respondents to report whole milk sales: (1) Pounds of milk, 
(2) pounds of butterfat, and (3) gallons of milk. In the other 
States, sales of whole milk on the basis of butterfat content 
were considered relatively unimportant and, therefore, the unit of 
measure (pounds of butterfat) was omitted from the question- 
naire. However, for publication by States, the reports for whole 
milk sold were converted into a unit of measure common to the 
particular State. Pounds of butterfat were converted into gal- 
lons or pounds of whole milk on the basis of the average butterfat 
content of whole milk, as shown by data furnished by the Agri- 
cultural Marketing Service of the United States Department of 
Agriculture. 

The tables for economic areas contain figures on total milk 
sold. These figures represent the total equivalent of milk and 
pounds of butterfat in cream sold in terms of whole milk. 

Total sales of all dairy products for 1054 are not entirely 
comparable with those for 1040. The value of sales for whole 
milk and cream was included in both the 1954 and 1045 Censuses. 
In 1950, the value of the sales of butter, buttermilk, and cheese 
was obtained; the value of these products was not included in 
1954. 

Sows and gilts farrowing. — The 1954 questionnaire asked for 
spring litters by an inquiry on the number of sows and gilts far- 
rowing between December 1, 1953, and June 1, 1954, and for fall 
litters by an inquiry on the number of sows and gilts farrowing 
since June 1, but before December 1, 1954. The inquiry relating 
to sows farrowing or expected to farrow during the fall was in- 
cluded in the census for the first time in 1954. The 1954 data for 
spring farrowings (sows and gilts farrowing between December 
1, 1953, and June 1, 1954) are comparable with those for 1950. 
Since no data were obtained in 1950 for fall farrowing, only the 
1954 data for farrowing after June 1 are given. For a number of 
counties, the ratio of sows farrowing to the number of hogs and 
pigs on hand, plus those sold, may be low because hogs or pigs 
were shipped into the county for feeding. Adjustments in the 
number of sows farrowing were made both for spring and fall 
litters when there was substantial evidence that the number of 
sows farrowing was not reported. The adjustments were made 
largely in counties outside the major hog-producing areas. 

Sheep and lambs and wool. — Questionnaires for all States, ex- 
cept Florida, Georgia, and South Carolina, contained inquiries 



XX 



UNITED STATES CENSUS OF AGRICULTURE: 1954 



regarding sheep and lambs. In Florida, Georgia, and South 
Carolina, the enumerator was instructed to report the number of 
sheep and lambs in the remarks section. However, no data on 
the number of sheep and lambs or on wool production were com- 
piled for these 3 States for 1954. 

Goats and mohair. — In Louisiana, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Ore- 
gon, Texas, Washington, and selected counties in Missouri, special 
questions were provided for reporting goats and mohair. These 
questions called for the number of all goats. Angora goats, and 
other goats, separately, and for the number of goats clipped and 
pounds of mohair clipped in 1954. 

Bees and honey. — Provision was not made for reporting bees 
or honey for the 1954 Census. 

Value of liveitock on fanni. — The values for 1954 shown in 
State Table 13 were secured by multiplying the number of each 
class of livestock or poultry on hand by the State average price. 
These prices were obtained cooperatively by the Agricultural 
Marketing Service, United States Department of Agriculture, and 
the Bureau of the Census. 

liveitock product!.— The inquiries regarding livestock produc- 
tion and sales relate to the calendar year 1954, and those for 
sales of livestock products relate to the products produced in 
1954. 

Bales of live animals.— The 1954 questionnaire called for the 
number and value of sales of animals sold alive from the place 
during 1954. The questions used were similar to those used in 
the 1950 Census. The difference in the time of enumeration for 
the two censuses may have affected the comparability of the data. 
Since the 1954 Census was a fall enumeration, an additional 
problem was involved in getting information on animals sold 
alive. Jt was necessary not only to ask the respondent for sales 
he had made during 1954 prior to the date of the enumeration, 
but also for an estimate of sales he would make during the re- 
mainder of 1954. Some respondents may not have reported sales 
to be made after the enumeration but before December 31, 1954. 
No data are available to indicate the extent of under-reporting 
of sales of livestock and poultry. 

Poultry and poultry products.— For the 1954 Census, chicken 
sales were subdivided into sales of (1) broilers and (2) other 
chickens. This is the first census in which broilers were enumer- 
ated separately. The enumeration of broilers presented problems 
because of the varied contractual arrangements under which 
broilers are produced. The agriculture questionnaire contained 
the following Instruction: "Report all broilers sold from this 
place Including those raised for others under contract." In a 
number of cases, young chickens were reported as broilers sold. 
Entries of less than 1,000 chickens or broilers sold, for individual 
farms, were tabulated as other chickens sold. 

Sampling 

Sampling was used for the 1954 Census of Agriculture in two 
ways. First, information on fertilizer and lime, farm expendi- 
tures, farm labor, off-farm work, facilities and equipment on the 
place, farm value, and mortgage debt, was enumerated for only 
a sample of farms. (The information in Sections VIII through 
XIII of the questionnaire was obtained only for the farms in the 
sample. See Appendix for copy of the questionnaire.) Second, 
some tabulations were prepared on the basis of a sample of farms. 
As a result, a greater volume of data could be published than if 
the reports for all farms had been used for every tabulation. Most 
of the data shown in this report by State economic areas are 
estimates prepared on the basis of the tabulation of data for the 
sample of farms. These tabulations are for the same sample of 
farms for which data were collected on a sample basis during the 
enumeration. 

Description of the sample for the 1954 Census. — The sample used 
for the 1954 Census of Agriculture consisted of specified farms 
(see page XII for a description of specified farms) and one-fifth 



of the remaining farms. Thus, the sample included slightly more 
than 20 percent of all farms. 

The actual selection of farms in the sample was made by 
census enumerators as part of the enumeration procedure. The 
enumerator listed the head of each household on a single line of 
the Enumerator's Record Book, and determined whether an 
agriculture questionnaire was to be obtained. If he was re- 
quired to fill a questionnaire, he entered the "number of acres in 
this place" in accordance with question 11 of the agriculture 
questionnaire. On the basis of the number of acres in this place, 
the enumerator recorded a check mark in one of five squares that 
provided for the recording of each farm in one of five .size-of- 
farm groups. All the squares for farms with 1,000 or more acres 
were lightly shaded and a random fifth of the squares for each 
of the other four size groups was also lightly shaded. (See Ap- 
pendix for an example of a page of the Enumerator's Record 
Book.) If the respondent was listed on a line for which the 
shaded square corresponded to the size of his farm, his farm 
was included in the sample. The agriculture questionnaire con- 
tained one or more inquiries at the beginning of Section VIII — 
the first section containing inquiries to be asked for only a sam- 
ple of farms ( See copy of questionnaire in Appendix ) — for the 
guidance of the enumerator as to whether the questionnaire was 
for a farm to be included in the sample and whether the farm 
qualified as a specified farm. 

Adjustment of the sample. — An adjustment in the 20 percent 
part of the sample was made by a process essentially equivalent to 
stratifying the farms in the sample by size, for the purpose of 
(1) improving the reliability of the estimates from the sample 
on an economic area level, and (2) for the purpose of reducing 
the effects of possible biases introduced because some census 
enumerators did not follow perfectly the method devised for se- 
lecting the farms in the sample. In order to adjust the sample 
for each State economic area, counts were obtained of all farms 
and of sample farms for each of ten size-of-farm groups based 
on "acres in this place." The ten size-of-farm groups were as 
follows : Under 10 acres. 10-29 acres, 30-49 acres, 50-69 acres, 
70-99 acres, 100-139 acres, 140-179 acres, 180-259 acres, 260-^99 
acres, and 500-999 acres. In determining the extent of the adjust- 
ment, the difference between the number of farms in the sample 
and the total number of farms divided by five was obtained for 
each size group. The actual adjustment for the size group was 
made by either eliminating or duplicating, on a random basis, 
farms in those counties of the State economic area where the 
greatest over- or under-representatlon existed. 

Method of estimation. — Data which are based on the sample of 
farms were expanded to represent figures for all farms. The 
expanded figure for an item was obtained by multiplying by five 
the tabulated total for that item for the farms in the 20 percent 
part of the sample and adding the total for the specified farms. 

Reliability of estimates based on the sample. — The estimates 
based on the tabulation of data for a sample of farms are subject 
to sampling errors. When data based on a sample of farms are 
shown In the same table with data for all farms, the data based 
on a sample are shown in italics. In case all the data in a table 
are estimates based on a sample, a headnote for the table indicates 
that the data are estimates based on a sample of farms. Approxi- 
mate measures of the sampling reliability of estimates are given 
in State Tables 18 and 19 for farms reporting and for item totals. 
These measures indicate the general level of sampling reliability 
of the estimates, but do not include adequate allowances for 
sources of error other than sampling variation as, for example, 
errors in original data furnished by farmers. Sources of error 
other than sampling may be relatively more important than 
sampling variation, especially for totals for a State. 

In general, the measures of sampling reliability presented are 
conservative in that they tend to overestimate the variations in 
sample estimates, because (1) the predicted limits of error do not 
always take fully into consideration that complete data were

tabulated for all specified farms and (2) the maximum figures in- 
tended to serve for all economic areas were used. Consequently, 
there is a tendency to overestimate the variations in the sample, 
especially for groups with large numbers of farms or for groups 
for which the totals for specified farms represent a high per- 
centage of the item totals. 

Data in State Tables 18 and 19 are given to assist in deter- 
mining the general level of sampling reliability of estimated 
totals. In State Table 19 a list of the items is given and the 
level of sampling reliability as shown in State Table 18 is indi- 
cated. By referring to State Table 18 in the column for the level 
of sampling reliability designated in State Table 19, the sampling 
error according to the number of farms reporting may be obtained. 
For farms reporting, the indicated level of sampling is level 1. 
State Table 18 shows percentage limits such that the chances 
are about 68 in 100 that the difference between the estimates 
based on the sample and the figure that would have been obtained 
from a tabulation for all farms would be approximately within 
the limit specified. However, the chances are 99 in 100 that the 
difference would be less than two and one-half times the percent- 
age given in the table. 

The data in State Table IS indicate that when the number 
of farms reporting specified items is small, the item totals are 
subject to relatively large sampling errors. Nevertheless, the 
considerable detail for every classification for each item is pre- 
sented to insure maximum usefulness for appraising estimates 
for any combination of items that may be desired. 

Percentage figures and averages derived from the tables will 
generally have greater reliability than the estimated totals; also, 
significant patterns of relationships may sometimes be observed 
even though the individual data are subject to relatively large 
sampling errors. 

The data representing estimates based on a sample for the 1950 
Census were obtained in essentially the same way as in 1954 and 
the same State Tables 18 and 19 may be used to estimate the 
sampling errors for the 1950 data. 

Differences in data presented by counties and by State economic 
areas. — In many cases, data presented by State economic areas 
were estimated on the basis of tabulations for a sample of farms, 
while most of the data presented by counties were obtained by 
the tabulation of data for all farms in the county. However, 
data for the number of farms classified by type of farm and 
economic class of farm, and for the use of fertilizer and lime, 
farm expenditures, farm labor, farm facilities, farm equipment, 
and value of land and buildings were estimated for each county 
on the basis of the tabulation of data for a sample of farms 
in each county. The same sample of farms was also used for 
the tabulation of data for these items for State economic areas 
and for the State. In some cases, the totals presented for these 
items for State economic areas or for the State will differ 
slightly, but not significantly, from the totals obtained by adding 
figures for counties in the State economic area or the State. 
As a matter of economy, small adjustments were not made in 
the tabulations when the difference was not large enough to 
affect the usefulness or reliability of the data. 

Classification of Farms 

The classifications of farms by color and tenure of operator, 
economic class of farm, and type of farm were made on the basis 
of visual inspection of each questionnaire during the office 
processing. 

The classification for color and tenure of operator was made for 
all farms, while the classifications by economic class and by type of 
farm were made for only a sample of farms. The classification 
of farms by size was made for all farms by means of electric 
tabulating equipment. 

Farms by size. — Farms were classified by size according to the 
total land area of each farm. The same classification was used 
for all States. 



In analyzing size-of-farm statistics, consideration should be 
given to the definition of a farm for census purposes. Census 
farms are essentially operating units, not ownership tracts. If 
a landlord has croppers or other tenants, the land assigned each 
cropper or tenant is a separate farm even though the landlord 
may operate the entire holding essentially as one farm in respect 
to supervision, equipment, rotation practices, purchase of sup- 
plies, or sale of products. 

In some parts of the South a special questionnaire, the Land- 
lord-Tenant Questionnaire, was used to obtain statistics for such 
multiple units. The statistics for multiple units will be pub- 
lished in Volume III, Part 1. 

Farms by tenure of operator. — Farm operators are classified ac- 
cording to the tenure under which they hold their land on the 
basis of the replies to the inquiries on total land owned, total land 
rented from others, total land managed for others, and land rented 
to others. The basis of classification by tenure is, in general, the 
same for the 1954 as for the 1950 Census. In 1950, for an opera- 
tor who owned land and rented land from others, there was no 
way to determine whether land rented to others represented land 
owned by the operator or land rented by the operator from others ; 
therefore, such an operator was classified as a part owner. In 
1945 and earlier, full owners, part owners, and tenants were classi- 
fied on the basis of the land retained. Under this earlier classi- 
fication a part owner who sublets to others all the land he rents 
from others would have been classified as a full owner; a part 
owner who rents to others all the land he owns would have been 
classified as a tenant. In 1954. the acreage of owned land that 
was rented to others was obtained for the first time. Thus, it was 
possible to classify a farm operator who owned land and rented 
land from others as a full owner, part owner, or tenant according 
to Hie ownership or rental of the land he retained. 

Full owners own land but do not retain any land rented from 

others. 

Part owners own land and rent land from others. 

Managers operate farms for others and are paid a wage or sal- 
ary for their services. Persons acting merely as caretakers 
or hired as laborers are not classified as managers. If a farm 
operator managed land for others and also operated land on 
his own account, the land operated on his own account was 
considered as one farm and the land managed for others as a 
second farm. If a farm operator managed land for two or more 
employers all the land managed was considered one farm. 
Tenants rent from others or work on shares for others all the 
land they operate. Tenants are further classified on the basis 
of their rental arrangement as follows : 

Cash tenants pay cash as rent, such as $10 an acre or $1,000 
for the use of the farm. 

Share-cash tenants pay a part of the rent in cash and a part 
as a share of the crops or of the livestock or livestock products. 

Share tenants pay a share of either the crops or livestock or 
livestock products, or a share of both. 

Crop-share tenants pay only a share of the crops. 
Croppers are crop-share tenants whose landlords furnish all 
work power. The landlords either furnish all the work animals 
or furnish tractor power in lieu of work animals. Croppers 
usually work under the close supervision of the landowners, or 
their agents, or another farm operator, and the land assigned 
them is often merely a part of a larger enterprise operated as a 
single unit. 

Livestock-share tenants pay a share of the livestock or live- 
stock products. They may or may not also pay a share of the 
crops. 

Other tenants include those who pay a fixed quantity of any 
product ; those who pay taxes, keep up the land and buildings, 
or keep the landlord in exchange for the use of the land ; those 
who have the use of the land rent free ; and others who could 
not be included in one of the other specified subclasses. 

Unspecified tenants include those tenants for whom the rental 
arrangement was not reported. 

For earlier censuses, the definition for each subclass of tenant 
is essentially the same as for 1954. However, in 1945 the 
enumerator was asked to determine the subclass of tenants, 
while in 1954, 1950, 1940, and earlier censuses the classification 
was made during the processing of the questionnaires on the 
basis of the answer to the inquiries on the questionnaires. The 



XXII 



UNITED STATES CENSUS OF AGRICULTURE: 1954 



procedure for 1945 may have affected the comparability of the 
data, particularly those for cash tenants and share-cash 
tenants. 

Farms by color or race of operator. — Farm operators are classi- 
fied by color as "white" and "nonwhite." Nonwhite includes 
Negroes, Indians, Chinese, Japanese, and all other nonwhite 
races. 

Farms by economic class. — A classification of farms by economic 
class was made for the purpose of segregating groups of farms 
that are somewhat alike in their characteristics and size of 
operation. This classification was made in order to present an 
accurate description of the farms in each class and in order to 
provide basic data for an analysis of the organization of agricul- 
ture. Only the farms in the sample were classified by economic 
class. The totals given in the tables represent estimates for all 
farms based on tabulations of the data for the farms included in 
the sample. 

The classification of farms by economic class was made on the 
basis of three factors; namely, total value of all farm products 
sold, number of days the farm operator worked off the farm, 
and the relationship of the income received from nonfarm sources 
by the operator and members of his family to the value of all 
farm products sold. Farms operated by institutions, experiment 
stations, grazing associations, and community projects were clas- 
sified as abnormal, regardless of any of the three factors. 

For the purpose of determining the code for economic class and 
type of farm, it was necessary to obtain the total value of farm 
products sold as well as the value of some individual products 
sold. 

The total value of farm products sold was obtained by adding 
the reported or estimated values for all products sold from the 
farm. The value of livestock, livestock products except wool 
and mohair, vegetables, nursery and greenhouse products, and 
forest products was obtained by the enumerator from the farm 
operator for each farm. The enumerator also obtained from the 
farm operator the quantity sold for corn, sorghums, small grains, 
hays, and small fruits. The value of sales for these crops was 
obtained by multiplying the quantity sold by State average prices. 

The quantity sold was estimated for all other farm products. 
The entire quantity produced for wool, mohair, cotton, tobacco, 
sugar beets for sugar, sugarcane for sugar, broomcorn, hops, and 
mint for oil was estimated as sold. If the estimated value of the 
quantity sold for any other crop was $100 or more, the entire 
quantity harvested was estimated as sold. To obtain the value 
of each product sold, the quantity sold was multiplied by State 
average prices. 

In making the classification of farms by economic class, farms 
were grouped into two major groups, namely, commercial farms 
and other farms. In general, all farms with a value of sales of 
farm products amounting to $1,200 or more were classified as 
commercial. Farms with a value of sales of $250 to $1,199 were 
classified as commercial only if the farm operator worked off the 
farm less than 100 days or if the income of the farm operator 
and members of his family received from nonfarm sources was 
less than the total value of all farm products sold. The remaining 
farms with gross income of $250-$l,199 and farms with a value 
of sales of all farm products of less than $250, as well as farms 
operated by institutions, experiment stations, grazing associa- 
tions and community projects were classified as "other farms." 

Commercial farms were divided into six groups on the basis 
of the total value of all farm products sold, as follows : 

_, M . Value of farm 

Clans of farm products sold 

I $25,000 or more 

II 10,000 to $24,999 

III 5,000 to 9,999 

IV 2, 500 to 4,999 

V 1,200 to 2,499 

VI *250 to 1,199 

•Provided the farm operator worked off the farm leBs than 100 days 
or provided the Income the farm operator and members of his family 
received from nonfarm sources was less than the value of all farin 
products sold. 



Other farms have been grouped into three classes as follows : 

Part-time farms. — Farms with a value of sales of farm 
products of $250 to $1,199 were classified as part time if the 
farm operator reported (a) 100 or more days of work off the 
farm in 1954, or (b) the nonfarm income received by him and 
members of his family was greater than the value of farm 
products sold. 

Residential farms. — Residential farms include all farms ex- 
cept abnormal farms with a total value of sales of farm prod- 
ucts of less than $250. Some of these represent farms on which 
the operator worked off the farm more than 100 days in 1954. 
Some represent farms on which the income from nonfarm 
sources was greater than the value of sales of agricultural 
products. Others represent subsistence and marginal farms 
of various kinds. Some farms are included here which, if the 
classification were based on farm production for more than 
1 year, might have qualified as commercial farms. 

Abnormal farms. — Insofar as it was possible to identify them, 
abnormal farms include public and private institutional farms, 
community enterprises, experiment-station farms, grazing asso- 
ciations, etc. 

Farms by type. — The classification of farms by type was made 
on the basis of the relationship of the value of sales from a par- 
ticular source or sources to the total value of all farm products 
sold from the farm. In some cases, the type of farm was de- 
termined on the basis of the sale of an individual farm product, 
such as cotton, or on the basis of closely related products, such 
as dairy products. In other cases, the type was determined on 
the basis of sales of a broader group of products such as corn, 
sorghums, all small grains, field peas, field beans, cowpeas, and 
soybeans. Part-time, residential, and abnormal farms were not 
classified by type. In order to be classified as a particular type, 
sales or anticipated sales of a product or a group of products had 
to represent 50 percent or more of the total value of products 
sold. 

Only the farms in the sample were classified by type. The 
data given in this report by type of farm relate only to commercial 
farms. 

The types of farms for which data are shown, together with 
the product or group of products on which the classification is 
based, are : 

Product or group of products amounting 
to 50 percent or more of the value of all 
Type of farm farm products sold 

Cottou Cotton. 

Cash-grain Corn, sorghum, small grains, field peas, 

field beans, cowpeas, and soybeans. 

Other field-crop Peanuts, Irish potatoes, sweetpotatoes, 

tobacco, sugarcane, sugar beets for 
sugar, and other miscellaneous crops.

Dairy- 



Poultry. 



Livestock farms other 
than dairy and poul- 
try. 



Vegetables. 

Berries and other small fruits, and tree 
fruits, grapes, and nuts. 

Milk and other dairy products. The cri- 
terion of 50 percent of the total sales 
was modified in the case of dairy 
farms. A farm for which the value of 
sales of dairy products represented 
less than 50 percent of the total value 
of farm products sold was classified as 
a dairy farm if — 

(a) Milk and other dairy products 
accounted for 30 percent or more 
of the total value of products sold, 
and 

(b) Milk cows represented 50 per- 
cent or more of all cows, and 

(c) Sales of dairy products, to- 
gether with the sales of cattle and 
calves, amounted to 50 percent or 
more of the total value of farm 
products sold. 

Chickens, eggs, turkeys, and other poul- 
try products. 

Cattle, calves, hogs, sheep, goats, wool, 
and mohair, provided the farm did not 
qualify as a dairy farm.

Type of farm farm products sold — Continued 

General Farms were classified as general when 

the value of products from one source 
or group of sources did not represent 
as much as 50 percent of the total 
value of all farm products sold. 
Separate figures are given for three 
kinds of general farms: 

(a) Primarily crop. 

(b) Primarily livestock. 

(c) Crop and livestock. 
Primarily crop farms are those for 

which the sale of one of the following 
crops or groups of crops — vegetables, 
fruits and nuts, cotton, cash grains, 
or other field crops — did not amount 
to 50 percent or more of the value of 
all farm products sold, but for which 
the value of sales for all these groups 
of crops represented 70 percent or 
more of the value of all farm products 
sold. 
Primarily livestock faring are those 
which could not qualify as dairy 
farms, poultry farms, or livestock 
farms other than dairy and poultry. 
but on which the sale of livestock and 
poultry and livestock and poultry 
products amounted to 70 percent or 
more of the value of all farm products 
sold. 
General crop and livestock farms are 
those which could not be classified as 
either crop farms or livestock farms, 
but on which the sale of all crops 
amounted to at least :?0 percent but 
less than 70 percent of the total value 
of all farm products sold. 

Miscellaneous This group of farms includes those that 

had 50 percent or more of the total 
value of products accounted for by 
sale of horticultural products, or sale 
of horses, or sale of forest products. 
The classification of farms by type of farm for the 1954 Census 
was made on essentially the same basis as that for the 1950 
Census. In 1050, miscellaneous farms included those that had 
50 percent or more of the total value of products accounted for 
by the sale of fur animals, or the sale of bees and honey, in addi- 
tion to the items included in the 1054 classification. 

Value of farm products sold. — Data on the value of farm 
products sold were obtained for 1954 by either of two methods. 
First, the values of livestock sold alive, poultry, poultry products, 
vegetables harvested for sale, nursery and greenhouse products, 
forest products, and all livestock products, except wool and mo- 
hair, were obtained during the enumeration by asking the farm 
operator the value of sales. 

Second, the values of all other agricultural products sold were 
estimated for each county. During the enumeration, the quantiiy 
sold was obtained for each farm, for corn for grain, sorghums 
for grain or forage, small grains, hays, and for all small fruits 
and berries. For all other crops, the quantity sold was esti- 
mated for each county. For the purpose of computing value of 
farm products sold, it was assumed that the entire quantity har- 
vested, or reported, was sold for the following crops :

The estimated value of all crops sold, except vegetables har- 
vested for sale, nursery and greenhouse products, and forest prod- 
ucts, was obtained by multiplying the estimated quantity sold by 
the State average price. The State average prices were obtained 
by the Agricultural Marketing Service of the U. S. Department of 
Agriculture. 

In the case of miscellaneous crops listed above, the average 
prices have been determined on the basis of reports of quantity 
sold and value of sales obtained in the 1954 Census of Agriculture. 

For the 1050 Census, the value of all farm products sold was 
obtained by inquiry of each farm operator during the enumera- 
tion. In that census, inquiries were made regarding the value 
of farm products sold for a maximum of 46 individual farm prod- 
ucts or groups of farm products. In most cases, the quantity sold 
for the individual farm product was obtained together with the 
value of sales. The total value of farm products sold for 1050 
includes the value of several farm products not included in the 
figures for 1054 — butter, cheese, skim milk, bees, honey, corn fod- 
der, corn silage, and grain straw, and receipts from the rental of 
pasture. 

Data for the sales of farm products represent total sales for 
the entire farm, regardless of who shared in the receipts. The 
landlord's share of crops and livestock sold and also the livestock 



which the landlord took from the tenant farm to his own place 
were considered as sales from the tenant farm. Sales of crops 
grown on a contract basis, of livestock fed on a contract basis, or 
of poultry raised under a contract with a feed dealer or others, 
were included as sales from the farm. 

The data on sales cover one year's operation. The sales of 
crops represent the sales of crops before the enumeration as well 
as those yet to be sold at the time of the enumeration. Corn, 
cotton, and other commodities under loan were to be considered 
as sold at loan prices. Livestock sales are for the calendar 
year regardless of when the livestock were raised or produced. 
Most livestock products are sold at the time they are produced. 
It was assumed that all wool and mohair shorn or clipped in 
1954 was sold. 

The value of farm products sold does not include government 
payments for soil conservation, lime and fertilizer furnished, and 
subsidy payments. 

When obtaining the value of the farm products sold from farm 
operators, the enumerators were instructed to report the gross 
value without making deductions of any kind. These instruc- 
tions, however, were not always followed. In the case of milk, 
poultry, eggs, etc., deductions were often made by buyers of farm 
products for hauling, handling, marketing, etc., before making 
payments to farmers. In such cases, farm operators often con- 
sidered the amount of the check received as the gross value of 
the farm products sold.

*Level 1 should be used in determining the sampling reliability of estimated number of farms and farms reporting. If the estimated number of farms or farms reporting consti- 
tutes more than 75 percent of all farms In the universe, a better approximation to the sampling reliability may be obtained by multiplying the percent given in the tables as 
follows: 

1. When the number of farms or farms reporting Is 75 percent of all farms, multiply the percent error by 0.50. 

2. When the number of farms or farms reporting is 90 percent of all farms, multiply the percent error by 0.30. 

3. When the number of farms or farms reporting is 95 percent of all farms, multiply the percent error by 0.20.

1 Level 1 should be used in determining the sampling reliability of estimated number of farms and farms reporting. If the estimated number of farms or farms reporting consti- 
tutes more than 75 percent of all farms in the universe, a better approximation to the sampling reliability may be obtained by multiplying the percent given in the tables as 
follows: 

1. When the number of farms or farms reporting is 75 percent of all farms, multiply the percent error by 0.50. 

2. When the number of farms or farms reporting is 90 percent of all farms, multiply the percent error by 0.30. 

3. When the number of farms or farms reporting is 95 percent of all farms, multiply the percent error by 0.20.
