PREFACE 



Volume I, Counties, is one of the five principal reports presenting the results of the 
1959 Census of Agriculture. This volume, in 54 parts, presents the compilation of the infor- 
mation given by farm operators to census enumerators in 1959. 

The 1959 Census of Agriculture was taken in conformity with the Act of Congress of 
August 31, 1954 (amended August 1957), which codified Title 13, United States Code. 

The collection of the data was carried out by census enumerators directed by super- 
visors appointed by the Director of the Bureau of the Census and working under the direction 
of Robert B. Voight, then Chief, Field Division. Paul R. Squires, 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, Warder B. Jenkins, Assistant Chief, and Orvin L. Wilhite, Assistant Chief. They 
were assisted by M. Vincent Lindquist, Thomas Jabine, Robert S. McCauley, John C. 
Mackey, Robert Standley, Hilton E. Robison, Helen E. Teir, Carl R. Nyman, Kenneth 
R. Norell, Gladys L. Eagle, Henry L. DeOraff, Charles H. Boehne, Joseph A. Correll,

INTRODUCTION 

THE 1959 CENSUS OF AGRICULTURE 



History of the Census. — The 1959 Census is the 17th nationwide 
agricultural census. The first agricultural census was taken in 
1S40, at the same time as the Sixth Decennial Census of Popu- 
lation. From 1850 to 1920, an agricultural census was taken 
every 10 years. With increased application of scientific findings 
and the growing use of mechanization in agriculture, farming 
practices were changing so rapidly that facts collected at 10-year 
intervals were no longer adequate. Aware of the need for more 
accurate and timely information, the Congress in 1909 (36 stat. 
10, sec. 31, provided for a census to be taken in 1915 and every 
10 years thereafter which was to be in addition to the census of 
agriculture to be taken at the time of the decennial census of 
population. The 1915 census was not taken, however, because 
of the abnormal conditions created by World War I. Beginning 
with 1920, a national agricultural census has been taken every 
5 years. 

Legal Basis for the Census. — The 1959 Census of Agriculture 
was authorized by an Act of Congress, as were all prior censuses 
of agriculture. "Title 13, United States Code-Census," codified in 
August 1954, and amended in August 1957 and September 1960, 
is now the legal basis for censuses of agriculture and other cen- 
suses, and surveys conducted by the Bureau of the Census. Sec- 
tion 142, paragraph (a), of Title 13 makes provision for the 
Census of Agriculture. It reads as follows : 

"The Secretary shall, beginning in the month of October 
1959, and in the same month of every fifth year thereafter, take 
a census of agricultfire. provided that the censuses directed to 
be taken in October 1959 and each tenth year thereafter, may, 
when and where deemed advisable by the Secretary, be taken 
instead in conjunction with the censuses provided in section 
141 of this title." (Section 141 relates to the decennial cen- 
suses of population, unemployment, and housing to be taken 
as of the first day of April of each decennial year.) Under 
authority granted by Section 4 of Title 13, the Secretary of 
Commerce delegated "the functions and duties imposed upon 
him by this title" to the Director of the Bureau of the Census. 

Pretest of the 1959 Census. — A "pretest" of the field procedures 
of the 1959 Census of Agriculture was conducted in 17 counties 
of the United States during the fall of 1958. The purpose of the 
pretest was to provide the Bureau with a mea.sure of the effective- 
ness of the questions and procedures planned for the 1959 
nationwide census. Three versions of the agriculture question- 
naire — the first one for Northern States, the second for Southern 
States, and the third for Western States — were used in the pre- 
test. Each version contained questions appropriate to the type 
of agriculture in the part of the country where it was used. All 
major aspects of field forms and procedures, from the hiring and 
training of crew leaders and enumerators to actual interviews 
with farm operators, were given a "trial run" in each of the 17 
counties. Preliminary versions of reporting forms, maps, pay- 
roll records, training guides, and instruction manuals were sub- 
jected to actual use under conditions simulating those expected 
in the nationwide enumeration conducted in the fall of 1959. 

In making final preparations for the 1959 census, the staff of 
the Bureau drew heavily on the results of the pretest, as well as 
on experience gained from previous censuses. 

Training Program for Personnel for Enumeration. — Every per- 
son hired to do work in connection with the 1959 Census of Agri- 
culture received specialized training for his job. Staff mem- 

563128 — 60 



hers of the Washington and Regional Offices of the Bureau and 
of the U.S. Department of Agriculture trained approximately 110 
agriculture field assistants and 2,100 crew leaders. The crew 
leaders, in turn, trained and supervised apprt)ximately 30,(XX) 
enumerators. All training was presented according to procedures 
contained in various guides and manuals prepared by the Bureau. 
The training program included filmstrips, map-reading, practice 
interviewing, and practice filling of questionnaires and other 
census forms. In most instances, training sessions were held 
near the areas in which employees worked and immediately prior 
to the beginning of their assignments. 

Enumeration Period. — The actual enumeration in the conter- 
minous United States (see page XIV) started at dates varying 
from October 7 to November 18, 1959. In general, starting dates 
were based upon regional variations in harvesting seasons and 
on weather conditions. The primary aim was to have the 
enumeration late enough to follow the harvesting of the bulk 
of important crops and early enough to precede the advent of 
winter weather with the attending unfavorable travel conditions. 
The bulk of the enumeration work was completed within three 
to four weeks after the starting date. In Hawaii, the enumera- 
tion was made during the months of December 1959 and January 
1960 ; and in Alaska, during April 1960. 

Enumeration starting dates for the censuses of 1959 and 1954 
are given in State table 11, together with figures showing the 
percentage of farms enumerated in the State during weekly pe- 
riods. The average enumeration date for the 1959 census for 
each county is given in county table 6. 

Data for inventory items — land in farms, machinery and equip- 
ment, livestock, and poultry — relate to the situation at the actual 
time of enumeration of each individual farm. Data for acres, 
production, and sales of crops relate generally to the crops har- 
vested during the crop year 1959, regardless of whether and when 
they were sold while data for sales of livestock and livestock 
products relate to the calendar year 1959. Since the enumera- 
tion was made before the end of 1959, special emphasis was 
placed upon the inclusion of estimates for crops yet to be sold 
and for livestock and livestock products expected to be sold in 
the period from the time of enumeration to the end of the cal- 
endar year. Instmctions on the questionnaire and the wording 
of questions were designed to assure that full crop-year or 
calendar-year data would be reported. For example, "How much 
of this year's crop was or will be sold?" 

ENUMERATION FORMS AND PROCEDURES 

Authorization. — Section 5 of Title 13 of the United States Code 
authorizes the preparation of forms and questionnaires used In 
the census. It reads as follows : 

"The Secretary shall prepare schedules, and shall determine 
the inquiries, and the number, form, and subdivisions thereof, 
for the statistics, surveys, and censuses provided for in this 

title." 

The Agriculture Questionnaire. — The questionnaire for the 1959 
Census of Agriculture was prepared by the staff of the Bureau. 
Selection of the inquiries was based on the results of the 1958 
pretest and experience gained in earlier censuses. Careful con- 
sideration was given to such factors as the current availability 



X

of data from other sources, the possibility of obtaining data by 
methods other than a census, the adequacy of the data that might 
be obtained, and the need for and usefulness of the data. Two 
committees gave advice and counsel to the Bureau. One of these, 
a Special Advisory Committee, was composed of members desig- 
nated by the organizations they represented, following an invita- 
tion from the Director of the Bureau of the Census to name a 
representative to serve in an advisory capacity. The Special 
Advisory Committee for the 1959 Census of Agriculture was 
made up of one representative from each of the following: Agri- 
cultural Publishers Association, American Association of Land- 
Grant Colleges and State Universities, American Farm Bureau 
Federation, American Farm Economic Association, American 
Statistical Association, Farm Equipment Institute, National As- 
sociation of Commissioners, Secretaries, and Directors of Agri- 
culture, National Council of Farmer Cooperatives, National 
Farmers' Union, National Grange, Rural Sociological Society, 
and the U.S. Department of Agriculture. A representative of 
the Bureau of the Budget was in attendance at all meetings of 
the Advisory Committee. 

Because of the special interest of the U.S. Department of Agri- 
culture in censuses of agriculture, the Director of the Bureau 
of the Census sought the continuous cooperation of that organiza- 
tion in developing plans, questionnaires, and procedures for the 
1959 Census of Agriculture. Worliing Groups were established 
in the U.S. Department of Agriculture to make recommendations 
for the following general subjects : 

Tenure, Land Values, and Mortgage Debt 

Land Use and Conservation and Production Practices 

Field Crops 

Fruits and Vegetables 

Forest Products 

Livestock, Poultry, and Dairy 

Income and Expenditure (including Contractual Operations) 

Farm Labor 

Equipment and Facilities (including Structures) 

Each Working Group had the responsibility for ascertaining 
the U.S. Department of Agriculture's need for data in the field 
covered by its "terms of reference" and for presenting recom- 
mendations to a small Joint Committee comprising representa- 
tives of both the Bureau of the Census and the U.S. Department 
of Agriculture. The Joint Committee received written recom- 
mendations from each Working Group. The Chairman of each 
Group appeared before the Joint Committee as did any member 
of the Working Group who was needed to present supplemental 
information of a specialized nature. 

Prior to the formulation of the questionnaire, State Agricul- 
tural Colleges and other major users of census data were invited 
to suggest inquiries for the enumeration. Each member of the 
Special Advisory Committee had the opportunity and the respon- 
sibility for channeling in suggestions from the organization he 
repre.sented. The number of inquiries submitted from all sources 
greatly exceeded the number that could be included in the census, 
from the point of view of cost, of the respondent's time and 
patience, and of practical value to the majority of users of data. 

The final selection included 316 questions, some of which con- 
sisted of several parts, for the 48 States comprising the con- 
terminous United States. Although each of the 316 questions 
was asked in one or more of the 48 States, considerably less than 
this total was asked in any one State because of the use of "State" 
questionnaires. Moreover, about 50 questions out of the total 
were asked of approximately one-fifth of all farm operators in 
the State. The number of questions ranged from 159 on the 
questionnaire for Maine to 194 on the questionnaire for Cali- 
fornia. In all, 38 versions of the questionnaire — one for each 
State or combination of adjoining States and two for Texas — 



were used for the 1959 census in the conterminous United States 
as compared with 21 versions in 1954 and 41 in 1950. A separate 
version was used in Alaska and another in Hawaii. 

Differences in the questionnaires were designed to account 
for regional and local differences in agriculture. Most, but not 
all, of the differences related to crops. The use of State ques- 
tionnaires made possible the inclusion of separate inquiries for 
all important crops grown within a State and, at the same 
time, a reduction in the total number of inquiries for a State. 
Questions that did not apply, to any considerable degree, to a 
particular State were omitted from the questionnaire used in 
that State. For example, separate questions about citrus fruits 
were omitted from all questionnaires except for the few States 
where citrus fruits are grown. An added advantage of State 
questionnaires was that production and sales data could be asked 
in the unit of measure most commonly used by the farmers in 
each State. Regional variation in the number and type of ques- 
tions is an important provision of the census for obtaining com- 
plete coverage of agricultural operations. 

About 2 weeks before the start of the enumeration, agricul- 
ture questionnaires were mailed to most households in rural 
areas. A letter was attached to each questionnaire asking the 
farm operator to fill the questionnaire and to give it to the enu- 
merator when he called. The purpose of this procedure was 
to save time and money in taking the census and to improve the 
quality of the information given by farm operators. By having 
the questionnaire ahead of time, the farmer could determine what 
information would be required and could check his records in 
advance of the enumerator's visit. It was, however, the respon- 
sibility of the enumerator to obtain an agriculture questionnaire 
for each place which qualified. If the questionnaire had been filled 
out by the farm operator, the enumerator was instructed to 
examine the questionnaire for completeness and accuracy and, 
if need be, to give the farmer such help as might be necessary. 

Agricultural Operations. — The training of enumerators stressed 
the concept that a census of agriculture is a census of agricultural 
operations rather than a census of farms. This concept was in- 
tended to assure a complete agricultural census free of any per- 
sonal judgment by enumerators as to what constitutes a farm. In 
accordance with clearly defined procedures, an enumerator was 
required to obtain an agriculture questionnaire for each person 
who had charge of one or more agricultural operations, whether 
or not he considered himself to be a farm operator. For enu- 
meration purposes, it was considered that there were agricul- 
tural operations on a place if, at any time in 1959 — 

a. Any livestock (hogs, cattle, sheep, goats, horses, or mules) 
were kept on the place. 

b. A combined total of 20 or more chickens, turkeys, and ducks 
were kept on the place. 

c. Any grain, hay, tobacco, or other field crops were grown on 
the place. 

d. A combined total of 20 or more fruit trees, grapevines, and 
nut trees were on the place. 

e. Any vegetables, berries, or nursery or greenhouse products 
were grown on the place for sale. 

As a result of the requirement that all places having agri- 
cultural operations be enumerated, more questionnaires were 
obtained than are included in the tabulations for farms. During 
the ofl3ce processing operations that followed the completion of 
enumeration, criteria were applied to the questionnaires to sort 
out for tabulation those that represented farms according to 
the census definition of a farm (see page XIV). 

Enumeration Assignments and Enumeration Districts. — To as- 
.sure a complete enumeration within the time allotted, the United 
States (excluding Alaska and Hawaii) was divided into 29,374 
Enumeration Assignments, or EA's, Each EA comprised an 



INTRODUCTION 



XI 



area that one enumerator could reasonably be expected to canvass 
within a 3- to 4-week period, as indicated by performance rec- 
ords from the 1954 census. 

Each EA was made up of one or more Enumeration Dis- 
tricts, or "ED's," as the geographic unit for enumeration. Prior 
to the enumeration, the ED's were classified into three groups 
on the basis of the density of dwellings in relation to the number 
of farms, as indicated by the 1954 Census of Agriculture, the 
1950 Census of Population and Housing, current population esti- 
mates, and highway maps showing culture which were basic 
to establishing the boundaries of each assignment. Through the 
use of different canvassing procedures for each group of ED's, 
the Bureau was able to reduce the cost of enumeration without 
running any material risk of missing any farms or other places 
with agricultural operations. The ED groupings and canvassing 
procedures are described below. 

Group I Enumeration Districts. — In general, ED's with no 
well-defined cluster of dwellings were considered to be open- 
country areas and comprise Group I. For each ED of Group 
I, in his Enumeration Assignment, the enumerator was required 
to list in his Record Book the name of every head of household 
living in the ED and also the name of every person not living 
in the ED who had agricultural operations there. There were 
approximately 20,751 ED's in Group I for the 1959 Census. 

Group II Enumeration Districts. — Rural ED's in which the 
number of dwellings was large in relation to the number of 
farms were considered to be in Group II. For each ED, in 
Group II, the enumerator was required to list the head of the 
household for all dwellings in the ED except for those on less 
than one acre of ground in built-up residential areas of 50 or 
more dwellings. He was also required to determine, by obser- 
vation or local inquiry, whether there were any farms or other 
places with agricultural operations in the built-up areas and, 
if so, to obtain an agriculture questionnaire. There were 
approximately 7,979 ED's in Group II. 

Group III Enumeration Districts. — Most incorporated places 
and unincorporated villages having approximately 150 or more 
dwellings were designated as separate ED's and are classified 
as Group III. Also, most ED's in counties around large metro- 
politan areas vs'ere designated as Group III Ed's. Prior to 
the 1959 Census of Agriculture, places enumerated in these 
areas during the 1954 Census of Agriculture were listed In 
the Enumerator's Record Book. The enumerator was required 
to visit and enumerate or otherwise account for each place listed 
in his Record Book. In addition, he was instructed to ask at 
each of these places if there were any farms or other places with 
agricultural operations in the Enumeration District, and, if so, 
to add them to his list and enumerate them. There were ap- 
proximately 15,836 Group III ED's in 1959. According to the 
1954 Census, these ED's contained 380,575 farms. 

A few enumeration districts that comprised incorporated 
places or that were within an incorporated city were classified 
as Group I or Group II because they had a large number of farms. 
A few others, comprising extensive rural districts requiring con- 
siderable travel, were classified as Group III because they had 
only a small number of farms. 

Enumerator's Record Book. — Each enumerator received one or 
more Record Books containing a listing form for use during 
canvassing. (See appendix for facsimile of one page of list- 
ing form included in Enumerator's Record Book.) The lines 
on the listing form were numbered in consecutive order. Ex- 
cept as otherwise prescribed for Group II and Group III ED's, 
the enumerator listed in his Record Book the name of each head 
of household living in his assigned area and also the name 
of each person not living in his area who had agricultural opera- 
tions there. As he made his listing, he also asked the questions 
about agricultural operations that were printed on the listing 
form. Answers to these questions determined, for the enumerator, 
whether or not an agriculture questionnaire was required for the 
person listed and, if so, whether he or some other enumerator 
was responsible for getting it. Thus, the Record Book served 
as an important aid to the enumerator in securing complete cov- 
erage of all agricultural oi)erations within his area. At the same 



time, it helped to prevent enumeration of the same place by two 
or more enumerators. 

Enumeration Maps. — As a second aid to getting complete cover- 
age, each enumerator received a map or. In a few exceptional 
cases, a brief written description of the area assigned to him 
for enumeration. He was required to plan and follow an orderly 
route of enumeration within the boundaries of his assigned area 
in accordance with established canvassing procedures. As the 
enumerator listed a place in his Record Book, he Indicated its 
location by copying onto his map the number of the line on which 
he listed it. This numbering system indicated the enumerator's 
route of travel, and helped both the enumerator and his crew 
leader to determine the extent of coverage of the enumerator's 
assignment at any given time. 

Lists of Special and Large Farms. — Prior to the enumeration, a 
card list of "special and large farms" was prepared on the basis 
of records obtained from the 1954 census and from Federal and 
State agricultural agencies. In general, "special and large farms" 
fell into one of three categories: (1) farms having unusually 
large acreages, livestock Inventories, or annual sales as indi- 
cated by available records; (2) farms known to be specializing 
in such operations as broiler production, turkey growing, feed 
lots, nursery or greenhouse production, cranberry bogs, citrus 
groves, etc.; (3) farms that might easily be overlooked because 
they had absentee operators or were not locally thought of as 
farms, such as institutions, Indian reservations, grazing associa- 
tions, etc. 

Enumerators were given the cards for the special and large 
farms within their assignment areas to use as aids to obtaining 
complete coverage. Generally, the cards provided insurance 
against the omission of farming units that could have a signifi- 
cant effect on the totals for a given county or State. The enu- 
merator was instructed to obtain an agriculture questionnaire 
for each special or large farm in his area or to write an explana- 
tion on the card as to why an agriculture questionnaire was not 
required on the basis of 1959 operations. The crew leader had 
a duplicate set of cards for use in checking enumeration coverage. 

Landlord-Tenant ftuestionnaire. — As in .several previous cen- 
suses, a special landlord-tenant questionnaire was used in some 
parts of the South as a supplement to the agriculture question- 
naire. Its iHirpose was to help the enumerator get complete 
and accurate coverage of individually operated tracts of land 
that were actually part of one operating unit under the control 
of one landlord. To accomplish this purpose, the enumerator was 
required to fill a landlord-tenant questionnaire for each landlord 
who had any land worked on shares. The entries made in this 
questionnaire included the name of each sharecropper, tenant, or 
renter ; the amount of land assigned to each ; and the acreage and 
quantity of crops harvested on shares. By checking these entries 
against the agriculture questionnaires obtained for the individual 
operators, the enumerator and the Central Office could verify that 
each part of the operating unit controlled by the landlord was 
enumerated and that it was enumerated only once. The landlord- 
tenant questionnaire was used in 386 counties in the 1959 census 
as compared with approximately 900 counties in 1954. 

Township Sketch Map. — In some areas of the Great Plains, a 
considerable portion of land is farmed by nonresident operators— 
that is, by persons who do not live on the land they operate or 
who live on it only during part of the year. Enumerators in these 
areas used a special mapping form, the Township Sketch, in 
addition to their enumeration maps as an aid to obtaining com- 
plete coverage. Each township included on the sketch was 
identified by township and range number and was divided into 
144 small squares. In a standard section of 640 acres, each 
square represented a quarter section of land, or 160 acres. As 
the enumerator canvassed his assignment area, he indicated the 
acreage and location of each farm, ranch, and tract of nonfarm 



XII 



UNITED STATES CENSUS OF AGRICULTURE : 1959 



land by drawing its boundaries on the sketch. He also used a 
simple numbering system as a cross reference between the agri- 
cultural land identified on the sketch and the questionnaire on 
which it was reported. The Township Sketch was used in all 
counties of North Dakota and South Dakota and in selected 
counties of Colorado, Kansas, Minnesota, Montana, Nebraska, 
New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Wyoming. 

Field Review of Enumerator's Work. — In the 1959 census, 
greater emphasis was placed on a detailed review of enumerators' 
work during enumeration than had been the case in previous 
censuses. The objective was to detect and correct enumeration 
errors as early as possible in order to achieve and maintain a 
high quality of individual performance. Starting on the first day 
of enumeration and continuing throughout the enumeration 
period, each crew leader was instructed to make regular and 
frequent visits to his enumerators. At each visit, he was to 
follow a clearly defined procedure for observing the enumerator's 
conduct of interviews and for checking his listings, maps, ques- 
tionnaires, and other forms for accuracy and completeness. 

As an aid to checking coverage and enumerator eflBciency, the 
crew leader was given a list containing estimates, based on the 
1954 census, of the number of questionnaires required in each 
enumeration assignment area within his district, and of the 
mileage and time required to obtain those questionnaires. 

SAMPLING 

Use of Sampling.— In the 1959 census, as in several previous 
censuses, sampling was used in two ways : for enumeration and 
for tabulation. Sampling in enumeration consisted of the col- 
lection of information about the items included in sections IX 
through XV of the questionnaire for only a sample of farms. 
The "sample" items relate to sales of dairy products and sales of 
livestock, use of fertilizer and lime, farm expenditures, land-use 
practices, farm labor, equipment and facilities, rental agreements, 
farm values, and farm mortgage debt. The same sample of farms 
was used for tabulations by type of farm and by economic class 
of farm and for many of those by size of farm and by color and 
tenure of operator. 

Description of the Sample. — The sample used for the 1959 Census 
of Agriculture consisted of all farms with a total area of 1,000 
or more acres or with estimated sales of $100,000 or more in 1959, 
and approximately 20 percent of all other farms. Farms with 
1,000 or more acres were universally included in the sample 
during enumeration. As the enumerator filled the questionnaire, 
he determined the number of "acres in this place" (see question 7 
of the agriculture questionnaire). If the acreage amounted to 
1,000 or more he was required to fill sections IX through XV of 
the questionnaire. Farms with less than 1,000 acres, with esti- 
mated sales of $100,000 or more, were included in the sample 
during the office processing. For these farms the information for 
sections IX through XV was obtained by mail. 

The selection of farms of less than 1,000 acres for Inclusion in 
the sample was made during enumeration, according to the fol- 
lowing procedure: As the enumerator determined that he was 
required to obtain a questionnaire, he assigned a number to it, 
whether or not he was able to obtain the questionnaire on his 
first visit. He assigned numbers in consecutive order, beginning 
with "1" for the first questionnaire required in each enumera- 
tion district within his area. He was instructed to fill sections 
IX through XV on all questionnaires for which the assigned 
number ended in "2" or "7" (i.e. 2, 7, 12, 17, 22, etc.). 

Adjustment of the Sample. — An adjustment in the part of the 
sample that was comprised of farms of less than 1,000 acres and 
with estimated sales of less than $100,000 was made by a process 
essentially equivalent to stratifying the farms in the sample by 



size of farm. The purpose of this adjustment was to improve 
the reliability of the estimates based on the sample and to reduce 
the effects of possible biases Introduced by enumerators who de- 
viated from the prescribed procedure for selecting the sample 
farms. The adjustment procedure was carried out for "blocks" 
of counties, each consisting of from one to ten counties In a State. 
To adjust the sample, separate counts were made for each county, 
and for the block of counties of all farms and of farms in the 
sample for each of 10 size-of-farm groups based on the "acres 
in this place" (question 7). The 10 size-of-farm groups were as 
follows : under 10 acres, 10 to 49 acres, 50 to 69 acres, 70 to 99 
acres, 100 to 139 acres, 140 to 179 acres, 180 to 219 acres, 220 
to 259 acres, 260 to 499 acres, and 500 to 999 acres. Farms of less 
than 1,000 acres, but with value of sales of $1(X),000 or more, 
were excluded from these counts. For each size-of-farm group, 
the number of farms in the sample for the block of counties was 
adjusted to make it equal or approximately equal to the total 
number of farms divided by five. This was accomplished for 
each group by the elimination or duplication on a random basis, 
of farms in those counties where the difference between the 
actual proportion in the sample and the expected 20 percent was 
in the same direction as the difference for the block of counties. 

Estimation of Totals for the Sample. — For the items included 
in the sample part of the questionnaire (sections IX through 
XV), estimated totals for all farms were derived from the tabu- 
lated totals for the farms in the adjusted sample. First, Item-by- 
item totals, as tabulated for that part of the sample comprising 
farms of less than 1,000 acres and with estimated sales of less 
than $100,000, were multiplied by 5. These estimated item-by- 
item totals were then added to the corresponding item totals, as 
tabulated, for all farms of 1,000 acres and over and farms with 
estimated sales of $100,000 and over. The resulting values 
represent the estimated totals for all farms. 

Presentation of Sample Data. — In tables where a small amount 
of data based on the sample farms is presented together with 
data for all farms, the data based on the sample are printed in 
italics. Other tables contain headnotes explaining that most 
of the data are estimates based on reports for only a sample 
of farms. 

Reliability of Estimates. — The estimated totals for all farms of 
the items enumerated for only the sample farms are subject 
to sampling errors. The estimated totals obtained by making 
tabulations for only the farms included in the sample are also 
subject to sampling errors. State tables 23 and 24 contain ap- 
proximate measures of the sampling reliability of the estimates 
for numbers of farms reporting and for item totals. While these 
measures indicate the general level of sampling reliability of the 
estimates, they do not completely reflect errors arising from 
sources other than sampling; for example, errors in the original 
data rejwrted by farmers. Errors arising from sources other than 
sampling may, in some Instances, be relatively more important 
than sampling variation, especially for county totals. 

The general level of sampling reliability of estimated totals 
may be determined from the data in State tables 23 and 24. State 
table 24 contains a list of Items, together with a figure for each 
item indicating one of the four levels of sampling reliability that 
are presented in State table 23. For each item the sampling 
error according to the number of farms reporting may be de- 
termined from State table 23, in the column for the level of 
sampling reliability designated in State table 24. To determine 
the sampling reliability for any item, reference must be made to 
State table 24 to find out which of the four levels of sampling 
reliability given in State table 23 should be used, and also the 
appropriate county or State table to obtain the number of farms 
reporting the item. 



INTRODUCTION 



XIII 



As explained in State table 23, the level of sampling reliability 
designated as level 1 should always be used to determine the 
sampling reliability of estimated numbers of farms or of farms 
reporting. 

State table 23 shows percentage limits such that chances are 
about 68 out of 100 that the difference between an estimate based 
on the sample and the figure that would have been obtained from 
a tabulation of all farms would be no more than the percentage 
specified for the estimated number of farms reporting that item. 
The chances are about 99 out of 100 that the difference would be 
less than 2V2 times the percentage specified. 

As indicated by the percentages in State table 23, the smaller 
the number of farms reporting a given item, the larger the relative 
sampling error in the estimated total for that item. Even so, 
considerable detail is presented for each item, by several classifi- 
cations of farms, in order to permit the appraisal of estimates 
for various combinations of items not shown in this report. Per- 
centages and averages that may be derived from the tables will 
generally have greater relative reliability than the corresponding 
estimated totals. However, significant patterns of relationships 
may be observed in the estimated totals even though the indi- 
vidual data are subject to relatively large sampling errors. 

The data representing estimates based on a sample of farms 
for the 1954 census were obtained in essentially the same way as 
in 1959. Therefore, State tables 23 and 24 may also be used to 
determine the sampling errors for the 1954 data. 

Differences in Data Resulting From Differences in Tabulating 
Procedures. — Many of the figures in the detailed State tables rep- 
resent estimates obtained by tabulating only the sample farms. 
The totals for these detailed distributions will generally differ 
somewhat from totals presented in other tables obtained from 
different distributions which were tabulated on a 100 percent 
basis. Moreover, although most of the figures presented by coun- 
ties were obtained from tabulations of all farms, the data in 
county table 4 for commercial farms, and all of the data in tie 
county tables on dairy products and livestock sold, fertilizer and 
lime, farm expenditures, land-use practices, farm labor, facilities 
and equipment, and value of land and buildings were estimated 
for each coimty on the basis of data tabulated for the farms in 
the sample. The State totals in the county tables for these items, 
though based also on the sample, were obtained in a different 
series of tabulating runs, and so may differ slightly from totals 
presented in some State tables. For reasons of economy the 
sample distributions were not adjusted to the 100 percent totals 
even when such totals were available, nor were slight discrepan- 
cies resulting from different runs of the sample data always rec- 
onciled unless the differences were large enough to affect the 
usefulness or reliability of the data. 

PROCESSING OPERATIONS 

Completion of Enumeration. — As an enumerator completed his 
assignment, he turned the portfolio containing questionnaires and 
other census materials over to his crew leader. After making 
a final review of the enumerator's work, the crew leader mailed 
the portfolio to the Agriculture Processing OfiBce at Parsons, 
Kansas. There, each enumerator portfolio was thoroughly 
checked for completeness of all required forms and for correct 
application of the sampling procedure. 

Editing of Questionnaires. — Each agriculture questionnaire was 
individually edited and coded before the information was trans- 
ferred to punch cards and tabulated. As the first major step in 
the editing process, questionnaires that did not represent farms 
according to the census definition were withdrawn from fur- 



ther processing. (See p. XIV.) As the second major step, the 
remaining questionnaires were examined for errors, omissions, 
and inconsistencies. Among the specific items subjected to con- 
sistency checks were the following : 

a. Total acreage compared with its distribution by use. 

b. Acreage of individual crops harvested compared with total 
cropland harvested. 

c. Irrigated acreage compared with total acres in the farm. 

d. Total acreage of individual crops for all purposes compared 
with the acreage harvested for specific purposes. 

e. Quantity of crops harvested in relation to acreage harvested. 

f. Sales in relation to production and, for livestock, to inven- 
tories. 

g. Total livestock compared with the inventory by age and sex. 
h. Exi>enditures compared with production and inventories. 

Obvious errors in calculations or in units of measure, and 
misplaced entries were corrected as they were found. Entries 
not clearly legible were rewritten. Many omissions or incon- 
sistencies were disregarded during editing. Those of significant 
magnitude could be and were handled more efiieiently and eco- 
nomically during mechanical processing operations. Question- 
naires containing major inconsistencies and omissions were re- 
ferred to members of the technical staff for review. Depending 
on the magnitude of the data involved, the technical staff cor- 
rected (or supervised the correction of) the questionnaires either 
on the basis of information reported for other farms of similar 
type in the area or on the basis of additional information re- 
ceived in response to letters directed to the farm operators. 

Coding of ftuestionnaires. — Most of the numerical information 
on a questionnaire was self-coding in that the inquiry number 
was utilized for the item identification on punch cards or on 
tabulations runs. However, some manual coding was also neces- 
sary for such items as irrigated crops for selected States, crops 
infrequently reported, miscellaneous poultry, etc. Code numbers 
were entered on questionnaires to classify farms and, in some 
cases, to identify data for individual items. All farms were coded 
by size of farm in terms of total acreage, by race, and by tenure 
of operator. Farms in the 17 Western States, Louisiana, and 
Hawaii were also coded on the basis of irrigated cropland and 
irrigated pasture. Additional codes were applied to all farms 
included in the sample to classify them by type of farm and by 
total value of agricultural products sold. Individual items were 
coded only where reports were received for crops or poultry not 
covered by separate inquiries on the questionnaire. This coding 
was necessary to assure inclusion of the data in the appropriate 
farm product totals. 

Tabulation of Data. — After the questionnaires were edited and 
coded, the information on them was punched on cards. The cards 
were then mechanically sorted and fed into machines which 
transferred the data to tabulation sheets. One of the initial 
and primary steps in the machine handling of the punch cards 
was to separate and list those cards which lacked necessary in- 
formation, those which contained inconsistent or impossible data, 
and those on which the data were possible but of such magnitude 
that a further review of the individual questionnaires was war- 
ranted. The listing sheets were examined and, as necessary, the 
cards were corrected. When the cards for a particular county 
were considered satisfactory, the data were tabulated. 

Subject-matter specialists of the Bureau and the U.S. Depart- 
ment of Agriculture examined all tabulations for reasonableness 
and consistency. As necessary, they made corrections on the basis 
of a further review and reappraisal of the original reports and 
verification of the editing, coding, and punching.

UNITED STATES CENSUS OF AGRICULTURE : 1959 



PRESENTATION OF STATISTICS 

statistical Content of This Report. — This report is part of Vol- 
ume I of the 1959 Census of Agriculture. Volume I consists of 
54 parts, each part containing information about agriculture for 
a single State, Commonwealth, or Possession. Each part con- 
tains county data for that particular State or area. The term 
"county," as used in this report embraces election districts in 
Alaska, parishes in Louisiana, municipios (municipalities) in 
Puerto Rico, etc. The statistics for 1959 were obtained from the 
Census of Agriculture taken in the "conterminous United States" 
(see following paragraph), Hawaii, and Puerto Rico during the 
period October 1959 to January 1960 and in Alaska, American 
Samoa, Guam, and Virgin Islands as of April 1, 1960. Compara- 
tive data for years prior to 1959 were obtained from earlier 
censuses. 

In the planning of the publications for the 1960 Censuses of 
Population and Housing and the 1959 Census of Agriculture, the 
term "conterminous United States," recommended by the Board 
of Geographic Names to designate the 48-State area as it ex- 
isted before Alaska and Hawaii became States, was adopted by 
the Bureau of the Census. 

The definitions and explanations in this introduction for vol- 
ume I generally have application broad enough to include the 
States of Alaska and Hawaii, and the Commonwealth of Puerto 
Rico and the island possessions. However, specific application 
in many instances may be limited to the conterminous United 
States ; for example, references to earlier censuses, to the sam- 
pling methods and procedures, to specific sections or questions on 
the questionnaires, and to specific table numbers. 

For each part of volume I (one part for each State or area), 
a facsimile of the appropriate questionnaire is reproduced in 
the appendix. 

The statistics for States and counties are presented according 
to the same general plan as was followed in the volume I re- 
ports for the 1954 and the 1950 censuses. State and county totals 
are given for nearly all items for which information was ob- 
tained in the 1959 census. However, most of the data by eco- 
nomic class of farm, type of farm, and color and tenure of farm 
operator are given only for States. 

Comparative data for the States are given for each census 
year beginning with 1920. Comparative data for counties are 
given for the years 1959 and 1954. For some items, the data 
obtained from the 1959 census are the only ones available. For 
comparative purposes 1950 data are carried in county table 6 
for the kind of road on which farms were located. 

Comparability of Data. — The data obtained from the various 
censuses of agriculture are not strictly comparable for all items. 
For example, differences from one census to another in the time 
of enumeration, the wording of the questions, and the definition 
of a farm cause some lack of comparability. Differences con- 
sidered to have a significant effect on the comparability of data 
are described in the text and/or mentioned in footnotes to the 
tables. 

Minor Civil Divisions, — As in. prior censuses, data for most of 
the items included in the 1959 Census of Agriculture were tabu- 
lated for minor civil divisions. The term "minor civil division" 
applies to the primary subdivision of a county into smaller geo- 
graphic areas such as townships, precincts, districts, wards, 
beats, municipalities, etc. Figures for these smaller geographic 
areas are not included in any of the published reports, but they 
may be supplied upon request and payment of the costs of com- 
piling and checking the data. 

Prior to the 1954 Census, an enumeration assignment did not 
include more than one minor civil division, even in cases where 
the township, precinct, etc., did not have enough farms to provide 
a full workload for an enumerator. In 1954, and again in 1959, 



the aim was to make enumeration assignments large enough to 
keep each enumerator fully occupied in his area for a 3- to 4-week 
period. Hence, in some areas, two or more adjoining minor civil 
divisions were combined into one enumeration assignment. An 
enumeration assignment 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 that included too 
many farms for one enumerator to cover during the enumeration 
period was divided into two or more enumeration assignments. 

In some cases, the minor civil division tabulations provide totals 
for a single minor civil division, even when such totals required 
a grouping of enumeration assignments. In other cases, the minor 
civil division tabulations provide totals for a combination of 
two or more adjoining minor civil divisions. The data for each 
individual minor civil division included in such totals can be tab- 
ulated separately, however, since each questionnaire obtained in 
the census contains the designation of the minor civil division in 
which the farm headquarters was located. An additional charge 
must be made for a separate tabulation of any small area in- 
cluded in a total for two or more combined minor civil divisions. 

Requests for census information for minor civil divisions should 
be directed to the Agriculture Division, Bureau of the Census, 
Washington 25, D.C. 

DEFINITIONS AND EXPLANATIONS 

Descriptive Summary and References. — The definitions and ex- 
planations that follow relate only to those items that are con- 
sidered to be inadequately described in the tables where they 
appear. Although the descriptive terms and explanations refer 
specifically to the 1959 Census of Agriculture, many of them also 
apply to earlier censuses. Most of the definitions consist of a 
r4sum6 of the questionnaire wording, supplemented by excerpts 
from instructions given to enumerators. For exact wording of 
the questions and of the instructions included on the question- 
naire, see the facsimile of the 1959 Agriculture Questionnaire in 
the appendix of this report. 

An analysis of the questions asked in the 1959 census, and of 
the data obtained, is given in Volume II, General Report, Statis- 
tics by Subjects, United States Census of Agriculture, 1959. The 
general report presents statistics for States by subject matter. 

General Farm Information 

Census Definition of a Farm. — For the 1959 Census of Agricul- 
ture, the definition of a farm was based primarily on a combina- 
tion of "acres in the place" and the estimated value of agricultural 
products sold. 

The word "place" was defined to include all land on which 
agricultural operations were conducted at any time in 1959 under 
the control or supervision of one person or partnership. (For 
definition of "agricultural operation.?", see p. X.) C/Ontrol may 
have been exercised through ownership or management, or 
through a lease, rental, or cropping arrangement. 

Places of less than 10 acres in 1959 were counted as farms if 
the estimated sales of agricultural products for the year amounted 
to at least $2.50. Places of 10 or more acres in 1959 were counted 
as farms if the estimated sales of agricultural products for the 
year amounted to at least $50. Places having less than the $50 
or $250 minimum estimated sales in 1959 were also counted as 
farms if they could normally be exi)ected to produce agricultural 
products in suflScient quantity to meet the requirements of the 
definition. This additional qualification resulted in the inclusion 
as farms of some places engaged in farming operations for the 
first time in 1959 and places affected by crop failure or other 
unusual conditions. 

To avoid biases arising from an enumerator's personal judg- 
ment and opinion, the Bureau did not give enumerators the deflni-

tion of a farm. Instead, enumerators were instructed to obtain 
questionnaires for all places considered farms by their operators 
and for all other places that had one or more agricultural opera- 
tions. (See "Agricultural Operations", p. X.) In 1954, enumer- 
ators were instructed to till questionnaires on the same basis as 
in 1959. In 1950, agricultural operations were defined to include 
every place of 3 or more acres, whether or not the operator con- 
sidered it a farm, and every place having "specialized operations", 
regardless of the acreage. "Specialized operations" referred to 
nurseries and greenhouses and to places having 100 or more 
poultry, production of 300 or more dozen eggs in 1949, or 3 or 
more hives of bees. In all of the three last censuses, as a re.sult, 
questionnaires were filled for a considerable number of places 
that did not qualify as farms. The determination as to which 
questionnaires represented farms was made during oflSce process- 
ing operations and only those questionnaires meeting the criteria 
for a farm were included in the tabulations. 

For both the 1950 and 1954 Censuses of Agriculture, places of 
3 or more acres were counted as farms if the annual value of 
agricultural products, whether for home use or for sale but ex- 
clusive of home-garden products, amounted to $150 or more. 
Places of less than 3 acres were counted as farms only if the 
annual sales of agricultural products amounted to $150 or more. 
A few places with very low agricultural production because of 
unusual circumstances, such as crop failure, were also counted as 
farms if they normally could have been expected to meet the 
minimum value or sales criteria. 

In the censuses from 1925 to 1945, enumerators were given a 
definition of "farm" and were instructed to obtain reports only 
for those places which met the criteria. According to this defini- 
tion, farms included all places of 3 or more acres, regardless of 
the quantity or value of agricultural production, and places of 
less than 3 acres if the value of agricultural products, whether 
for home use or for sale, amounted to $250 or more. Because of 
changes in price level, the $250 minimum resulted in the in- 
clusion of varying numbers of farms of less than 3 acres in the 
several censuses taken during this period. Generally, the only 
reports excluded from tabulation were those taken in error and 
those showing very limited agricultural production, such as only 
a small home garden, a few fruit trees, a small flock of chickens, 
etc. In 1945, reports for places of 3 acres or more were tabulated 
only if at least 3 acres were in cropland and/or pasture or If the 
value of products in 1944 amounted to at least $150. 

The decrease in the number of farms in 1950 and 1954, as com- 
pared with earlier censuses, was partly due to the change in 
farm definition, especially with respect to farms of 3 or more 
acres in size. Some of the places of 3 or more acres that were 
not counted as farms in 1950 and 1954 because the value of their 
agricultural production was less than $150 would have qualified 
as farms if the criteria had been the same as in earlier censuses. 

For 1959, the decrease in the number of farms as compared 
with all prior censuses resulted partly from the change in farm 
definition. The fact that sales of agricultural products in 1959 
was used resulted in the exclusion of some places that would 
have qualified as farms had the value of agricultural products 
alone been considered. The increase in the acreage minimum 
also had an effect. The reduction in the number of farms due 
to change in definition, 1954 to 1959, is shown for each county 
In county table 1. Some characteristics of the places not counted 
as farms in 1959, but which would have been included in 1954, 
are shown in State table 10. 

The change in farm definition made in 1950 and again in 1959 
had no appreciable effect on the totals for livestock or crops 
because the places affected by the change ordinarily accounted 
for less than 1 percent of the totals for a given county or State. 

For the States that comprise the conterminous United States, 
two figures are published for each county on the number of farms 



in 1959. One is an actual count of all farms and the other is an 
estimate based on the number of farms included in the sample. 
For almost every county there is a difference between the actual 
number of farms and the estimated number of farms. Because 
of sampling procedure and sampling variability, the number of 
farms in the sample seldom agrees exactly with the actual num- 
ber of farms. For most counties, the actual number of farms 
in the sample was either more or less than precisely 20 percent 
of all farms. Similarly, totals estimated on the basis of data 
for the sample farms may be slightly more or slightly less than 
the actual totals that would have been obtained had the data 
been tabulated for all farms. Therefore, the estimated number 
of farms reporting certain items may, in some instances, be 
greater than the total number of farms shown in county table 1. 
However, the estimated number of farms is given in county 
tables 5 and 6 so that estimates based on the sample farms may 
be related to the estimated rather than the actual number of 
farms. 

Farm Operator. — The term "farm operator" is iised to designate 
a person who operates a farm, either doing the work himself or 
directly supervising the work. He may be the owner, a member of 
the owner's household, a hired manager, or a tenant, renter, or 
sharecropper. If he rents land to others or has land worked on 
shares by others, he is considered as operator only of the land 
which he retains for his own operation. In the case of a partner- 
ship, only one partner is counted as an operator. The number of 
farm operators is considered to be 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 operators, for which the speci- 
fied item was reported. For example, if there were 1,922 farms 
in a county and only 1,465 had chickens 4 months old and over 
on hand at the time of enumeration, the number of farms 
reporting chickens would be shown as 1,465. The difference be- 
tween the total number of farms and the number of farms re- 
porting a particular item represents the number of farms not 
having that item, provided a correct report was received for all 
farms. 

Where applicable, figures may be given for the number of farms 
or operators not reporting items that were intended to be ob- 
tained for all farms ; for example, residence of farm operator. 
State table 4. The number not reporting, as compared with the 
total number of farms or operators, indicates the extent of 
incompleteness of the reporting of the data for the item. 

Land Area. — The approximate total land area of States and 
counties as reported for 1959 is, in general, the same as that re- 
ported for all censuses beginning with 1940. Such differences as 
are shown reflect political changes in boundaries or actual changes 
in land area caused by changes in the number or size of reser- 
voirs, lakes, streams, etc. For Alaska, the areas for election 
districts represent the gross area of land and water. 

Land in Farms. — Except for managed farms, the land to be in- 
cluded in each farm was determined from the answers to ques- 
tions about the number of acres owned, the number of acres rented 
from others or worked on shares for others, and the number of 
acres rented to others or worked on shares by others. The acres 
owned and the acres rented from others or worked on shares for 
others were first added together and then the acres rented to 
others or worked on shares by others were subtracted. The re- 
sult represented the number of acres in the farm. The number of 
acres in a managed farm was the difference between the total 
land managed and that part of the managed land that was rented 
to others or worked on shares by others. 

In the 1959, 1954, and 1950 censuses, enumerators were in- 
structed to record total figures for land owned, land rented from 
others, and land managed for others, including any part of the 
land that was rented to others. In censuses prior to 1950, enu- 



XVI 



UNITED STATES CENSUS OF AGRICULTURE : 1959 



merators were instructed to exclude all land rented to others and 
to record only that portion of the acreage owned, rented from 
others, or managed for others that was retained by the farm op- 
erator. Thus, the figures for the individual tenures of land are 
not entirely comparable for all censuses. However, the land in- 
cluded in each farm was determined on essentially the same basis 
for all censuses. 

The acreage designated in the tables as "land in farms" consists 
primarily of "agricultural" land— that is, land used for crops 
and pasture or grazing. It also includes considerable areas of 
land not actually under cultivation nor used for pasture or graz- 
ing. For example, the entire acreage of woodland and wasteland 
owned or rented by farm operators is included as land in farms, 
unless it was being held for nonagricultural purposes or unless 
the acreage was unusually large. For 1959 and 1954, if a place 
had 1,000 or more acres of woodland not pastured and wasteland, 
and if less than 10 percent of the total acreage in the place was 
used for agricultural purposes, the acreage of woodland not pas- 
tured and wasteland was reduced to equal the acreage used for 
agriculture. The procedure used in 1950 for excluding unusually 
large acreages of woodland not pastured and wasteland differed 
slightly from the one used in 1959 and 1954. In 1950, adjustments 
were made in places of 1,000 or more acres (5,000 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 government 
permit, all grazing land was to be included as land in farms 
provided the place of which it was a part was a farm. Grazing 
land operated by Grazing Associations was to be reported in the 
name of the person chiefly responsible for conducting the business 
of the Association. Land used rent free was to be reported as 
land rented from others. All land in Indian reservations that 
was used for growing crops or grazing livestock was to be in- 
cluded. Land in Indian reservations that was not reported by 
individual Indians and that was not rented to non-Indians was 
to be reported in the name of the cooperative group that used the 
land. In some instances, an entire Indian reservation was re- 
ported as one farm. 

Land owned. — All land that the operator and/or his wife 
held under title, purchase contract, homestead law, or as heir 
or trustee of an undivided estate at the time of enumeration is 
considered as owned. 

Land Rented from Others. — This item includes not only land 
that the operator rented or leased from others but also land 
he worked on shares for others and land he occupied rent free. 
Grazing land used under government permit or license is not 
included. 

Land Rented to Others. — This item includes all land rented or 
leased to others, except land leased to the government under the 
Soil Bank, and all land worked by others on shares or on a 
rent-free basis. For the most part, the land rented to others 
represents agricultural land but it also includes land rented 
for residential or other purposes. The tenant or sharecropper 
is considered as the operator of land leased, rented, or worked 
on shares even though his landlord may supervise his opera- 
tions. The landlord is considered as operator of only that por- 
tion of the land not assigned to tenants or croppers. 

Land Uanaged. — This item includes all tracts of land man 
aged for one or more employers by a person hired on a salary 
basis. A hired manager was considered to be the operator of 
the land he managed since he was responsible for the agricul- 
tural operations on that land and frequently supervised others 
in performing those operations. Managed land was always to 
be reported on a separate questionnaire whether or not the 
manager also operated a farm on his own account. 

Land in Two or More Counties. — An individual farm was al- 
ways enumerated in only one county, even in cases where the 
land was located in two or more counties. If the farm operator 
lived on the farm, the farm was enumerated in the county where 
he lived. If he did not live on the farm, the figures for the 
farm were tabulated for the county where the farm head- 
quarters was located. In cases where there was any question as 
to the location of the headquarters, figures for the farm were 
tabulated for the county where most of the land was located. 



Land in Farms According to Use. — Land in farms has been 
distributed according to the way In which it was used in 1959. 
The land uses described in the following paragraphs are mutually 
exclusive; that is, each acre of land is Included only once even 
though it may have had more than one use during the year. 

Cropland Harvested. — This category refers to all land from 
which any crops were harvested in 1959, whether for home use 
or for sale. It includes land from which hay (including wild 
hay) was cut and land in berries and other small fruits, or- 
chards, vineyards, nurseries, and greenhouses. Matured crops 
hogged off or grazed were considered to have been "crops har- 
vested" and were reported here. Land from which two or 
more crops were harvested in 1959 was to be counted only once 
in the land-use classification. Land used for other purposes 
either before or after the crops were harvested was to be re- 
ported as cropland harvested, without regard to the other uses. 

The enumerator was instructed to check the figure for crop- 
land harvested for each farm by adding the acreages of the 
individual crops and subtracting the acreages from which two 
or more crops were harvested. This checking procedure was 
repeated during the ofiice processing of questionnaires for all 
farms having 100 or more acres of cropland harvested. 

Cropland used only for Pasture. — This land-use classification 
includes rotation pasture and all other land used only for pas- 
ture or grazing that the operator considered could have been 
used for crops without additional Improvement. Enumerators 
were instructed to include land planted to crops that were 
hogged off, pastured, or grazed before maturity but to exclude 
land pastured before or after hay or other crops were harvested 
from it. Permanent open pasture may have been reported 
either for this item or for "other pasture" depending on whether 
or not the operator considered it as cropland. 

The figures for 1945 and earlier censuses are not entirely 
comparable with those for the last three censuses. For 1945, 
the figures Include only cropland used solely for pasture in 1944 
that had been plowed within the preceding seven years. The 
figures for 1940, 1935, and 1925 are more nearly comparable 
with those for 1959, 1954, and 1950, however, because they in- 
clude land pastured that could have been plowed and used for 
crops without additional clearing, draining, or irrigating. 

Cropland not Harvested and not Pastured. — This classification 
represents a total of three subclasses for the 17 Western States 
and two subclasses for other States. 

Cultivated Summer Fallow. — This subclass of land is shown 
only for the 17 Western States. It refers to cropland that 
was plowed and cultivated but left unseeded for the 1959 
harvest in order to control weeds and conserve moisture. 

Soil Improvement Grasses and Legumes. — For the 1959 cen- 
sus, land used only for cover crops to control erosion or to 
be plowed under for green manure is tabulated separately 
from "other cropland". After the establishment of the Soil 
Bank, land that would normally have been used for other 
purposes was frequently planted to soil-improvement crops. 
In counties where large acreages were placed in the Soil 
Bank, the total of land used for soil-improvement crops plus 
"other cropland" may be considerably larger than the "other 
cropland" shown for previous censuses. 

Other Cropland. — This subclass includes idle cropland, land 
in crops intended for harvest after 1959, and cropland not 
harvested because of complete crop failure, low prices, labor 
shortage, or other reasons. The 1959 figures for "other 
cropland" are not entirely comparable with those for previ- 
ous censuses since they do not include land used only for 
soil-improvement crops. (See preceding paragraph.) 

Woodland Pastured. — This classification includes all wood- 
land where livestock were pastured or grazed in 1959. The 
instruction on the questionnaire — "Include as woodland all 
wood lots and timber tracts ; cutover and deforested land 
which has value for wood products and has not been Improved 
for pasture" — represents a somewhat more precise definition 
than the corresponding instruction contained on the 1954 ques- 
tionnaire. No definition of woodland was given in 1950 apart 
from an instruction to enumerators not to include brush jias- 
ture as woodland. Some of the changes in woodland acreages 
from one census to another may merely represent differences 
in interpretation as to what constitutes "woodland." 

Woodland not Pastured. — This classification refers to all 
woodland not used for pasture or grazing In 19.59, Including 
land in operated farms that was placed in the Soil Bank and 
planted to trees. Unusually large tracts of timberland that 
were reported as woodland not pastured were excluded from 



INTRODUCTION 



XVII 



the tabulation of land in farms when it was evident that such 
land was held primarily for nonagricultural purposes. 

Other Pasture. — This classification refers to all land other 
than woodland and cropland that was used only for pasture 
or grazing in 1959. It includes noncrop open or brush pasture 
and cutover or deforested land that has been improved and 
used for pasture. The figures for the last three censuses are 
comparable but those for 19-15 include all nonwoodland pas- 
ture that had not been plowed during the prece<ling seven 
years. For the 1940 census and earlier years, the figures are 
more nearly comparable with those for the last three censuses. 
However, the classification may be somewhat less inclusive 
because land that could have been plowed and used for crops 
without additional clearing, draining, or irrigating was classi- 
fied as plowable pasture and included with "cropland used 
only for pasture". 

Improved Pasture. — This subclass refers to that portion of 
"other pasture" on which one or more of the following prac- 
tices had been used : liming, fertilizing, seeding, irrigating, 
draining, or the clearing of weed or brush growth. The fig- 
ures are comparable with those for 1954, when the question 
on improved pasture was asked for the first time. 

Other Land. — This classification refers to all land not in- 
cluded in the preceding land-use classifications, such as house 
lots, barn lots, lanes, roads, ditches, land area of ponds, and 
wasteland. This figure for 19.59 was obtained from the ma- 
chine tabulations by subtracting the total of all other uses 
from the total land in all farms reported for a given county 
or classification. H^nce, there is no figure given to represent 
the farms reporting this item. 

Value of Land and Buildings. — Only average values of land 
and buildings per farm and per acre are presented in this report. 
They are estimates based on data obtained for sample farms. 
Estimates of the total value of land and buildings by States, 
geographic divisions, and the United States, are presented in 
volume II. 

The enumerator was instructed to record the market value of 
the land and the buildings on that land. Market value was defined 
as the price which the farm operator would expect to receive for 
the land and buildings if he were to sell them on the day of 
enumeration. 

More problems and difficulties arise in the enumeration of farm- 
real-estate values than in the enumeration of most other agri- 
cultural items. Most of the items enumerated require the re- 
spondent to make a statement of fact. For example, information 
about the number and value of farm animals sold alive during the 
year is based on actual transactions. Similarly, information about 
livestock inventories relates to the situation existing on a spe- 
cific place at a specific time. Reports concerning the value of 
land and buildings, however, are estimates based almost entirely 
on opinion. The majority of farms have not changed hands for 
many years and are not currently for sale. For such farms, the 
operators are not likely to have any clear basis for estimating the 
value. To make an intelligent and objective estimate, a respond- 
ent first needs to make an estimate of the prevailing average 
market value of farms in his community. Then, he must either 
add to or subtract from that estimate to allow for the different 
characteristics of his own farm. In many cases, an operator who 
would not sell his farm under any circumstances may report an 
unreasonably high market value. In other cases, a farm operator 
who acquired his real estate during a i)eriod of relatively low 
prices may estimate an unrealistically low value by current stand- 
ards. Because of the extent of variation that is known to exist 
in real estate values, it is difficult to devise checking procedures 
that will identify inaccurate estimates. 

Age of Operator. — Farm operators were classified by age into 
six age groups. The average age of farm operators was derived 
from the sum of the ages of all farm operators reporting age 
divided by the number reporting. The number of farm operators 
65 or more years of age is an actual count based on the operators 
reporting age. 



Residence of Operator. — Farm operators were classified by resi- 
dence according to whether or not they lived on the farms they 
were operating. Some of those who did not live on the farms 
they operated themselves lived on farms operated by others. In 
cases where all the land was rented from others or worked on 
shares for others, the operator was considered to live on the farm 
operated provided the dwelling he occupied was included in the 
rental agreement. The dwelling, in such cases, was not neces- 
sarily on the land being operated. Similarly, a farm operator 
who did not live on the land being cultivated or grazed but who 
had some agricultural operations (other than a home garden) 
at his dwelling was considered as living on the farm operated. 

Since some farm operators live on their farms only during 
a part of the year, comparability of the figures for various cen- 
suses may be affected by the date of enumeration. 

In a few cases, the enumerator failed to report the residence of 
the farm ojjerator. Differences between the total number of 
farms and the number of farm operators classified by residence 
indicate the extent of under-reporting. 

Tear Began Operating Present Farm. — Enumerators were in- 
structed to report the year during which a farm operator began 
to operate his present farm and, if the year was 1958 or later, 
also to report the month. The year was intended to refer to the 
first year of the period during which the operator had been in 
continuous charge of his present farm or of any part of it. The 
time of year that farmers move is indicated by the month they 
began operating their farms, as shown by a monthly breakdown 
of the reports for farmers who began operating their present 
farms during 1958 and 1959. 

Off-Farm Work and Other Income. — To obtain a measure of the 
extent to which farm oi)erators rely on nonfarm sources for part 
of their income, four questions were asked of all farm operators. 
The first question asked for the number of days the operator 
worked off his farm in 1959. The other three questions, to be 
answered "Yes" or "No," asked (1) whether other members of the 
operator's household did any work off the farm ; (2) whether any 
income was received from sources other than the sale of agri- 
cultural products from the farm operated; and (3) whether the 
combined income of all members of the household from off-farm 
work and other sources was greater than the total value of agri- 
cultural products sold from the farm operated. 

Off-farm work was defined to include work on someone else's 
farm for pay as well as all types of nonfarm jobs, businesses, and 
professions, whether the work was done on the farm premises or 
elsewhere. Exchange work was not included. 

The questions asked in the 1959 Census are closely comparable 
with those asked in 1954. The data for 1959 are actual totals of 
all operators reporting off-farm work and other income whereas 
those for 1954 are estimated totals based on the sample. 

Equipment and Facilities. — In 1959 as in several earlier cen- 
suses, data about specified equipment and facilities were obtained 
for only a sample of farms. Farm operators were asked to report 
equipment and facilities that were on the farm at the time of enu- 
meration, regardless of ownership. They were to include items 
that were temporarily out of order but not any that were worn 
out. 

Data in terms of actual number were obtained for the follow- 
ing items of farm equipment in 1959 : (1) grain combines, (2) corn 
pickers, (3) pick-up balers, (4) field forage harvesters, (5) mo- 
tortrucks, (6) wheel tractors, (7) garden tractors, (8) crawler 
tractors, and (9) automobiles. Definitions given enumerators in- 
cluded the following specifications, among others : Corn pickers 
related to all types of machines used for picking com, whether 
used in separate or in combined picking-shelling ojjerations. 
Pick-up balers were to include both hand-tie and automatic balers 
but not stationary ones. Motortrucks were to include pick-up 
trucks and truck-trailer combinations; jeeps and station wagons 



XVIII 



UNITED STATES CENSUS OF AGRICULTURE : 1959 



were also to be included if they were used primarily as trucks, 
but school buses were specifically excluded. Wheel tractors spe- 
cifically excluded garden tractors, implements with built-in power 
units, such as self-propelled combines or powered buck rakes, and 
the power unit of a truck-trailer combination. Automobiles were 
to include jeeps and station 'wagons if they were used primarily 
as passenger cars. 

Questions to be answered "Yes" or "No" provided information 
as to the presence or absence of the following items: (1) tele- 
phone, (2) home freezer, (3) milking machine, (4) electric milk 
cooler, (5) bulk-type milk cooler (In six States only— Michigan, 
Minnesota, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin), 
(6) crop drier and (7) power-operated elevator, conveyor, or 
blower. 

Comparable data from one census to another are not available 
for all items. The questions asked about equipment during a 
given census reflect changes in farm mechanization and in the 
facilities available to farm families. Questions about some items 
of equipment were asked in 1959 for the first time (electric milk 
cooler, crop drier, bulk-type milk cooler, etc.). Similarly, some 
questions that were asked in earlier censuses were omitted in 
1959. For example, the use of electricity is now so widespread 
that there is no longer any need for obtaining a count of the 
farms having it. 

Farms by Kind of Road. — The classification of farms by the kind 
of road on which they are located is based on only a sample of 
farms. The enumerator was instructed to report, on the basis 
of his own observation, the kind of road on which the most 
frequently used entrance to the farm was located. For farms 
consisting of two or more tracts, he was to limit his report to the 
tract on which the farm operator had his dwelling or other 
headquarters. 

Farm Labor. — The questions about farm labor were asked only 
for the sample farms and related to persons working during 
the calendar week preceding the week of enumeration. Since 
the enumeration starting dates varied by geographic areas, and 
the enumeration within each area lasted over a period of several 
weeks, the calendar weeks to which the data apply also vary. 
Thus, the data for an individual farm may relate to any one 
week during the months of October, November, or December, or 
even, in a few instances, to weeks during September 1959 or 
January 1960. 

Farm labor was defined to include any work, chores, or planning 
necessary to the agricultural operations of the farm ; and to ex- 
clude housework, contract construction work, custom machine 
work, and repair, installation, or construction work done by per- 
sons employed specifically for such work. The farm labor in- 
formation contained in this report represents estimates based on 
answers to questions relating to the farm work or chores done 
during the week by (1) operator, (2) unpaid members of the 
operator's family, and (3) hired persons. An operator was 
considered as working if he worked one or more hours ; unpaid 
members of the operator's family, if they worked 15 or more 
hours ; and hired persons, if they worked at all during the week. 

Data are not fully comparable from one census to another, 
primarily becau.se of d fEerences in the period to which they relate. 
In 1954, the data were purposely related to either one of two 
calendar weeks, depending in part on the starting date set for 
the enumeration and in part on which week represented a period 
of peak employment within a given State. For the majority of 
States, the period specified was the week of September 26-October 
2 ; for other States, the week of October 24-30. 

In 1950, as in 1959, the data related to the week preceding the 
actual enumeration. Unlike 1959, however, enumeration starting 
dates were identical for all States in 1950 (April 1) but since 
several weeks were required to complete the enumeration, the 
calendar week preceding the enumeration was not identical for 



all farms. In 1945 and 1935, the number of farm workers related 
to the first week in January and, in 1940, to the last week in 
March. In 1945, 1940, and 1935, only persons working the equiv- 
alent of two or more days during the specified week were to be 
included. In 1945 and 1940, an additional specification limited 
the workers to those 14 years old and over. 

Experience gained from earlier censuses indicates that farm 
labor data are often unsatisfactorily reported unless the week 
specified is the week immediately preceding the actual enumer- 
ation. When a farm operator was asked to report the number of 
persons employed during a specified week that was several weeks 
prior to enumeration, he often reported the highest number of 
persons employed during the year. Obviously incorrect reports 
were adjusted to make the data reflect more nearly the situation 
known to exist during the specified week. The farm labor data 
for 1954 relates to a specified week which, Ln some cases, was sev- 
eral weeks prior to enumeration. Few adjustments were made 
in those data, however, even though there were indications of 
incorrect reporting. 

Begnlar and Seasonal Workers. — Hired persons working on 
the farm during the week concerned were classed as "regular" 
workers if the i)eriod of actual or expected employment was 150 
days or more during the year. They were classed as "seasonal" 
workers if the period of actual or expected employment was 
less than 150 days. In cases where the period of employment 
was not reported for an individual farm, it was estimated from 
data for such items as basis of payment, wage rates, expendi- 
tures for labor in 1959, and type of farming operations. 

Hired Workers by Basis of Payment. — Hired persons were 
also classified according to whether they were paid on a 
monthly, weekly, daily, or hourly basis, or by piecework. In 
cases of incomplete reporting, the basis of payment for hired 
workers was supplied during the oflice processing operations. 

Wage Rates and Hours Worked. — The agreed cash rate of pay 
was asked for each class of hired worker except those em- 
ployed on a piecework basis. (The number and the earnings of 
persons paid on a piecework basis were required for those who 
worked on Friday of the week preceding the enumeration.) 
The number of hours that workers were expected to work to 
earn their pay was asked for each class except those employed 
on an hourly or piecework basis. For 1959 and 1954, the data 
include oflice estimates for farms submitting incomplete reports 
of wage rates and hours worked. The estimates were consistent 
with the size and type of operations for the individual farm as 
compared with similar farms in the area for which complete 
reports were receivetl. The corresponding data for 1950 apply 
only to farms that reported both wage rates and hours worked. 

Fertilizer and Lime. — The questions about fertilizer and lime, 
asked only for the sample farms, relate to the acreage on which 
fertilizer and lime were used and to the quantity used. Farm 
operators were asked to report total quantities used in 1959 on 
the farms they operated regardless of when or by wliom the ferti- 
lizer and lime were purchased. In the South, some landlords 
who operated farms themselves included the fertilizer and lime 
they had purchased for use on their tenant-operated land. Such 
fertilizer and lime may also have been reported by the tenants. 
When double reporting was detected during the editing process, 
the data on tlie questionnaires concerned were adjusted to elim- 
inate duplication in the totals. 

The 1959 data for fertilizer and lime are entirely comparable 
with those for 1954. A breakdown between dry and liquid fer- 
tilizing materials was not obtained in 1954 and data on cost 
of either fertilizer or lime were not obtained in 1959. 

Fertilizer. — The report for fertilizer was to refer only to com- 
mercial fertilizer and fertilizing materials, including rock 
phosphate. The acres fertilized and the tons of fertilizer ap- 
plied to those acres were obtained separately for selected crops. 
The selected crops varied by region so that it was possible to 
obtain detailed data for the crops most commonly fertilized 
in each region. In cases where the same land was used for 
more than one crop, the acres fertilized were to be reported 
separately for each crop. If the same crop was fertilized 
more than once, however, the acres in that crop were to be 
reported only once. In all cases, the total quantity of fer- 



INTRODUCTION 



XIX 



tilizer used in 1959 was to be reported, including quantities 
used on land occupied by crops planted in 1058 pr by crops 
to be harvested in 1960. 

Reports for quantity of fertilizer and fertilizing materials 
used were required for both dry and liquid materials. The 
terms "dry" and "liquid" referred to the form in which the 
fertilizers and fertilizing materials were purchased and not 
to the way in which they were applied. Thus, dry fertilizers 
were those purchased in dry or solid form, as powders, du.sts, 
granules, pellets, etc. ; liquid fertilizers were those purchased 
in fluid form, as solutions or as liqutfled gases. 

Lime. — The data for lime relate to the total acreage limed in 
1959 and the total tonnage of lime and liming materials used 
on those acres for purposes of conditioning the soil. Instruc- 
tions on the questionnaire stated that ground limestone, hy- 
drated and burnt lime, marl, and oyster shells were to be 
included but that lime used for spraying or sanitation purposes 
was to be omitted. 

For some counties, the tonnage of lime shown in the table 
may be less than the tonnage reported for the Agriculture Con- 
servation Program or the Conservation Reserve Program of 
the Soil Bank. Differences may be due either to sampling 
error or to under-reporting by farm operators. Many of the 
differences are minimized or eliminated entirely in the data 
presented on a State or regional basis. 

Specified Farm Expenditures. — The data for farm expenditures 
are estimates based on reports obtained from the sample farms. 
The 1959 questionnaire contained questions for six items of farm 
expenditure: (1) purchase of feed for livestock and poultry, 
(2) purchase of livestock and poultry, (3) machine hire, 
(4) hired labor, (5) seeds, bulbs, plants, and trees, and (6) gaso- 
line and other petroleum fuel and oil. With the exception of 
items (2) and (5), exactly the same questions were asked in 
1954. For each item specified, the total expenditures made for 
the farm in 1959 were to be reported, whether made by the 
farm operator, his landlord, or both. A farm operator who 
rented part of his land to others was to report only the ex- 
penditures for the land he operated himself. Enumerators were 
instructed to ask respondents who had difficulty estimating 
their expenses for the period between enumeration and the end 
of the year to estimate them on the basis of current costs. 

Feed. — The report on feed purchased for livestock and poultry 
was to include expenditures for grain, hay, millfeeds, pasture, 
salt, condiments, concentrates, and mineral supplements as 
well as for the grinding and mixing of feed. The estimated 
cost of items furnished by a landlord, contractor, or other 
owner for feeding poultry and livestock kept on the farm was 
also to be included. Payments made by a tenant to his land- 
lord for feed grown on the tenant farm were to be excluded. 

livestock and Poultry. — The cost of baby chicks and turkey 
poults was to be included in the expenditures made for the 
purchase of livestock and poultry. Enumerators were in- 
structed to ask the farm operator to include the cost or esti- 
mated purchase value of poultry and livestock provided by 
others and cared for by the operator under a contract feeding 
arrangement. The cost of livestock purchased for resale within 
30 days was not to be included. A short-term transaction of 
that nature was considered to be a dealer operation, not an 
agricultural one. 

Data on the purchase of livestock and poultry were not ob- 
tained in 1954. The instructions for the 1950 census specified 
that expenditures for domestic rabbits, fur-bearing animals 
kept in captivity, and bees were to be included. Any lack of 
comparability in the 1950 and 1959 data resulting from inclu- 
sion or exclusion of rabbits, fur-bearing animals, or bees is 
considered to be so slight as to be insignificant. 

Uachine Hire. — Expenditures for machine hire relate to cus- 
tom machine work, such as tractor hire, threshing, grain or 
seed combining, silo filling, baling, cotton picking, cotton gin- 
ning, corn picking, plowing, vegetable harvesting, fruit pick- 
ing, spraying, and dusting. Any amount spent for the labor 
included in the cost of machine hire was to be considered as 
part of the total expenditure. The cost of freight or trucking 
and exchange work without pay were to be omitted. 

Hired Labor. — Expenditures for hired labor were to include 
total cash payments made in 1959 to family members and to 
others for farm labor. Payments to persons supplied by a con- 
tractor or a cooperative organization and paid directly by 
them or by the crew boss were also to be included. Payments 



for the following types of work were to be excluded : house- 
work, contract construction work, custom machine work, and 
repair, installation, or construction work done by persons spe- 
cifically employed for such work. 

Gasoline and Other Petroleum Fuel and Oil. — Expenditures for 
gasoline and other petroleum fuel and oil were to relate only 
to the products used in the farm business. Enumerators were 
instructed to exclude the cost of petroleum products used 
for the family automobile when operated for other than farm 
business purposes and of products used in the farmhouse for 
heating, cooking, and lighting. 

Seeds, Bulbs, Plants, and Trees. — Expenditures were to repre- 
sent the total amount spent for seeds, bulbs, plants, and trees 
to be used on the farm operated. The value of seed grown on 
the farm was to be excluded. For nurseries and greenhouses, 
the cost of products purchased for immediate resale was also 
to be excluded. 

This item of expenditure was not included in the 1954 Census. 
The data are comparable with those for 1950, however. 

Cbops 

Crops Harvested. — The 1959 agriculture questionnaire was simi- 
lar to the questionnaire used in several previous censuses in 
that it provided for the collection of detailed data for all crops 
harvested on each individual farm. The variation in the crops 
listed on the questionnaires used in different States made pos- 
sible the separate reporting of all important crops grown in a 
given area. All versions of the questionnaire contained several 
"All other crops" questions where crops not specifically listed in 
separate questions were to be reported. 

Acreage of Crops Harvested. — In most instances, the acreage 
reported for individual crops represents the area harvested 
during 1959. The area harvested is often less than the area 
planted. For fruit orchards and groves, vineyards, and planted 
nut trees, the acreage reported represents the total area in 
both bearing and nonbearing trees and vines as of the date of 
enumeration — usually a date in October, November, or Decem- 
ber 1959. For soybeans, cowpeas, and peanuts, the acreage 
grown for all purposes was reported as well as the acreage har- 
vested for specific purposes. For velvet beans, only the acreage 
grown was reported. As the enumeration was about to begin 
in South Florida (those counties in which the enumeration was 
begun on October 7), an instruction was issued to the effect 
that the data for vegetables and potato crops should relate 
to a full year, beginning on October 1, 1958, and ending Sep- 
tember 30, 1959. 

Quantity of Crops Harvested. — Except for citrus fruits, olives, 
avocados, and for vegetable and potato crops in South Florida 
(see preceding paragraph) data for quantity harvested relate 
to the calendar year 1959. For citrus fruits, the quantity 
harvested from the bloom of 195S for the 1958-59 marketing 
season was to be reported. For olives, the crop harvested in 
1959 was to be reported for all States except California and 
Arizona. Enumerators in those two States were instructed to 
report olives harvested from the bloom of 1958 during the 1958- 
59 harvest season (September 15, 1958, to February 28, 19.59). 
In the case of avocados, the data for California were to relate 
to the quantity harvested from the bloom of 1958 for the 
marketing season that extended from October 1, 1958 to Sep- 
tember 30, 1959; the data for Florida were to relate to the 
crop harvested for the marketing season that extended from 
July 1, 1969, to February 28, 1960. Respondents were to 
estimate quantities not yet harvested at the time of 
enumeration. 

Unit of Measure. — The unit of measure in which quantities 
were to be reported has varied for some crops, not only from 
■State to State, but also from census to census. The aim has 
been to permit reporting in the units of measure currently 
in use. In the State and county tables, the quantities harvested 
for each crop are usually expressed in the unit of measure 
given on the 1959 agriculture questionnaire. In 1959, for corn 
and Irish potatoes, a choice between two units in which to 
report the production was given in some States. (See the 
discussion for those crops.) To provide readily comparable 
information, data published in earlier reports in different units 
of measure generally have been converted to the units used in 
1959. 

Com. — In the 1959 census, detailed questions regarding the 
purpose for which corn was harvested were asked in all States. 
For most States, bushels was the only unit specified for corn 



XX 



UNITED STATES CENSUS OF AGRICULTURE : 1959 



for grain. In some areas, however, where farmers were not 
accustomed to using bushels as the unit of measure, the question- 
naire contained a provision for the quantity of corn for grain 
to be reported either in bushels (shelled basis) or in baskets of 
ear corn. As in former censuses, some reports were received 
In units of measure other than bushels or baskets. Prior to 
tabulation, all reports were converted to bushels (shelled basis) 
on the basis of the following factors : 70 pounds of ear corn, 
2 baskets of ears, or 56 pounds of shelled corn equal one bushel. 
A barrel of ear corn was usually considered equal to 5 bushels of 
shelled corn. 

Annual Legumes. For soybeans, cowpeas, and peanuts, the 

acres and quantity grown or harvested for specific purposes, as 
well as the total acreage grown for all purposes, were obtained 
for areas where these crops are grown extensively ; for velvet- 
beans, only the total grown for all purposes was obtained. For 
all these crops except, possibly peanuts, the total acreage grown 
for all purposes includes some acreage that was plowed under 
for green manure. In a few Southern States, separate figures 
were obtained for the acres grown alone and the acres grown 
with other crops. In 1959, as in 1954, enumerators were in- 
structed to report green soybeans and blackeyes and other green 
cowpeas harvested for sale as vegetables and not as annual 
legumes. 

Hay Crops. — Data for the total acres of land from which hay 
was cut exclude the acreage in sorghum, soybean, cowpea, and 
peanut hays. These crops were reported in separate questions 
in the States where they are important. To obtain the total 
acres from which other hays were cut, the acres of the various 
hay crops, including grass silage, were added together for each 
county. The corresponding totals for 1954 were obtained by 
the same procedure. For the 1950 census, however, the totals 
were based on farmers' own reports of their total acreage in 
harvested hay crops. 

The questionnaire contained an instruction that if two or more 
cuttings were made from the same land, the total production 
from all cuttings was to be reported but the acres cut were to 
be counted only once. In cases where both hay and grass silage 
were cut from the same land, the total acreage was to be reported 
for both crops. In 1959, as in 1954, alfalfa hay included alfalfa 
and alfalfa mixtures for hay and for dehydrating ; clover and 
timothy hay included clover, timothy, and mixtures of clover and 
grasses ; small grain hay included oats, wheat, barley, rye, or 
other small grains cut for hay. The hay crops listed on the 
questionnaire varied somewhat from one State or region to 
another. The kinds of hay to be included in separate questions 
can be determined for a specific State from reference to the 
facsimile of the questionnaire that is in the appendix. 

The tonnage of hay. Including alfalfa hay for dehydrating, is 
given on a dry-weight basis. Prior to tabulation, production 
reported in green weight was converted to its dry-weight equiv- 
alent by dividing by 3. However, the production of grass silage 
is given in terms of green weight. 

Field Seed Crops. — The field seed crops listed on each version 
of the questionnaire were limited to those considered most im- 
portant within the given State. Each version of the question- 
naire contained space for listing other field seed crops in order 
to facilitate the reporting of all field seed crops harvested. 
Quantity harvested was to be reported in terms of clean seed 
for most field seed crops. Bluegrass, or Junegrass seed, was to 
be reported in terms of green seed for Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, 
Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota, and 
Tennessee. No mention was made of "green-weight basis" for 
other States where this crop was to be reported in the "All other" 
question. 

Irish Potatoes and Sweetpotatoes. — For Irish potatoes and 
sweetpotatoes (including yams), the total quantity harvested was 
to be reported for each crop In all cases, whether harvested for 



home use or for sale or whether used for livestock feed. The 
acreage harvested was to be reported for each crop only in cases 
where the quantity amounted to 20 or more bushels (or the 
approximate equivalent in terms of hundredweights, barrels, or 
pounds, as explained on different versions of the questionnaire). 
This method of reporting was designed to facilitate the enumera- 
tion of potatoes harvested on small plots for home use. Essen- 
tially the same procedure was followed in both 1954 and 1950. 
In earlier censuses, however, the acreage of Irish potatoes and 
sweeti>otatoes was to be reported in all cases, even when produc- 
tion was solely for home use. Therefore, the data on acres for 
censuses prior to 1950 are not fully comparable with those for 
the last three censuses, especially in counties or States where 
production is largely for home use. 

The unit of measure in which quantity was to be reported 
varied from one State or region to another to correspond with 
the units most commonly used in a given area. In 27 States, 
the questionnaire provided a choice for reporting either bushels 
or 100-pound bags (hundredweights). The published data for 
counties and States are in terms of bushels. 

Berries and Other Small Fruits. — The question for berries and 
other small fruits related specifically to the acreages and quanti- 
ties harvested for sale. Only tame or cultivated berries were to 
be reported except for the New E)ngland States, where wild blue- 
berries were also to be included. Enumerators were instructed 
always to report the total quantity of each kind of berry har- 
vested for sale but to report the area harvested only when it 
amounted to one-tenth acre or more. Nonbearing areas and areas 
and quantities harvested for home use were to be excluded. The 
data for 1959 and 1954 are fully comparable. 

Tree Fruits, Nuts, and Grapes. — In 1959, as in 1954, fruit trees, 
nut trees, and grapevines were not enumerated for farms having 
a combined total of less than 20 at the time of enumeration. 
Both bearing and nonbearing trees and vines were to be included 
but not any that had been abandoned. For censuses prior to 
1954, all fruit or nut trees and grapevines on the farm were 
to be enumerated, regardless of the number. Because of this 
change in enumeration procedure, the data for 1959 and 1954 
are not fully comparable with those for earlier censuses. In 
commercial fruit-producing counties, the change in procedure 
may have had a considerable effect on the number of farms re- 
porting without causing any significant changes in the number 
of trees and vines nor in the quantity harvested. In counties 
where most of the trees or vines are in small plantings and 
where production is largely for home-use, however, the change 
may have caused a significant reduction not only In the number 
of farms reporting but also in the number of trees and vines and 
in the quantity harvested. 

In both 1959 and 1954, the area in fruit orchards, groves, 
vineyards, and planted nut trees was enumerated when there 
were 20 or more fruit trees, nut trees, and grapevines. In 
1950, the corresponding area was enumerated only If it amounted 
to one-half acre or more. In censuses prior to 1950, the area was 
to be reported regardless of its size or of the number of trees 
and vines. Enumerators frequently omitted the fractional acre- 
ages in small plantings and home orchards, however. In some 
counties, small plantings or home orchards compri.se a sizeable 
proportion of the total fruit and nut acreage. For those 
counties, the change from one census to another In acreage of 
land in fruits and nuts may not be due to fact but merely to 
differences in enumeration. 

In 1959, California was the only State for which the acreage 
in each individual fruit and nut crop was obtained. In 1954, 
such acreage was also obtained for Arizona. In all States, the 
number of bearing and ncabearing trees or vines on the farm at 
the time of enumeration and the quantity harvested in 1959 
were to be reported separately for each fruit and nut crop. ( Ex- 
ceptions in the harvest period for citrus fruits, avocados, and 



INTRODUCTION

olives are described on p. XIX.) The unit of measure in whicii 
quantities were to be reported varied from one State to another. 
Tables in this report show quantities in the unit of measure 
appearing on the 1959 questionnaire used in the State. 

Nursery and Greenhouse Products.— The questions about nursery 
and greenhouse products related only to products grown on the 
place for sale. Crops bought for resale without additional cul- 
tivation were to be excluded. The area used for growing and 
the value of sales were to be reported separately for each of 
three groups, as follows : 

a. Nursery products, (trees, shrubs, vines, and ornamentals). 

b. Cut flowers, potted plants, florist greens, and bedding plants. 
For these items, the area grown in the open was to be re- 
ported separately from the area grown under glass. 

c. Vegetables grown under glass, flower seeds, vegetable seeds, 
vegetable plants, bulbs, and mushrooms. For these items, 
the area grown in the open was to be reported separately 
from the area grown under glass or in the house. 

The data obtained for 1959 are comparable with those for 
1954 and 1950 since the questions asked were essentially the 
same in the three censuses. Detailed data regarding the pro- 
duction and sale of nursery, greenhouse, and other horticultural 
products on farms having sales of $2,000 will be published in 
volume V, part 1. 

Forest Products. — The forest products data obtained in the 
Census of Agriculture relate only to the products cut on farms. 
Commercial logging, timber operations, and forest products grown 
or cut on nonfarm places are excluded. Therefore, the data in 
this report do not represent the total forestry output or income 
for a county or State. 

The questions included on the 1959 agriculture questionnaire 
are more detailed than those asked in the 1954 Census. Value 
was obtained for the sale of standing timber or trees and for 
the sale of poles and piling, bark, bolts, and mine timbers. The 
quantity cut, whether for home use or sale, and the quantity sold 
were obtained for individual forestry products such as firewood 
and fuelwood, fence posts, sawlogs and veneer logs. Data relating 
to pulpwood, Christmas trees, maple trees, and maple syrup were 
obtained in States where such products are important 
commercially. 

Value of Crops Harvested. — The total value of crops harvested 
repre.sents the estimated value of all crops harvested during the 
crop year 1959. It includes the value of quantities consumed 
on farms as food, feed, seed, etc., as well as quantities sold. 
Farmers were not asked to report values of crops harvested ; 
the values were calculated in the Processing Office. For individ- 
ual crops, the quantity harvested was multiplied by the average 
price at which the crop was sold in the State. State average 
prices were furnished to the Bureau of the Census by the Agricul- 
tural Marketing Service of the U.S. Department of Agriculture. 
They are based on reports received from a sample of farmers and 
dealers. Quantities harvested were not obtained for vegetables 
nor for nursery and greenhouse products. Therefore, for those 
crops, the value of sales, as obtained in the enumeration, was used 
in the calculation of total value of crops harvested. 

Value of Crops Sold. — The questionnaire required value of sales 
of crops to be reported only for total vegetables, nursery and 
greenhouse products, and certain forest products. For all other 
crops, the value of sales was calculated on a county level during 
processing operations by multiplying the State average prices 
by either the quantity sold or the quantity harvested. Reports 
of quantity sold were obtained during the enumeration only for 
some of the major field crops. Quantity harvested was used in 
the calculation of value of crops sold for such crops as cotton, 
tobacco, etc., that are customarily grown for scle. The procedures 
used for the various crops are described on page XXV. They 



are similar to the procedures followed in 1954. In 1950, values 
of crops sold were obtained for each farm during the enumeration. 

IBBIQATION 

Definition of Irrigated Land.— Irrigated land is defined as land 
watered for agricultural purposes by artificial means. These 
means included subirrigation as well as systems whereby water 
was applied to the ground surface, either directly or by sprinklers. 
Land flooded for rice cultivation was considered as irrigated. 
Land flooded during high-water periods was to be included as 
irrigated only if water was directed to agricultural use by dams, 
canals, or other works. The definition of irrigated land specif- 
ically excluded land where the "water table", or natural level 
of underground water, was controlled by drainage works with no 
additional water brought in by canals or pipes. 

Enumeration of Irrigated Land. — A question on total land irri- 
gated was asked in all States, with the exception of Alaska. The 
acreage reported for this question includes not only irrigated 
cropland but also any other land that was irrigated in 1959. 

The questionnaires used in the 17 Western States, Louisiana, 
and Hawaii intluded several additional questions regarding irri- 
gation. These questions related to the acreage of land irrigated 
by sprinklers, irrigated land from which crops were harvested, 
specific crops irrigated, and source of irrigation water. Such 
additional data, for irrigated farms, are presented in county 
table la for these States. 

Statistics on the irrigation enterprises which supplied irriga- 
tion water were collected in the 1059 Census of Irrigation and 
are published in Volume III, "Irrigation of Agricultural Lands" 
This report contains a considerable amotint of data about irri- 
gation for the 17 Western States and Louisiana. 

Irrigated Farms.— All farms reporting any land irrigated in 
1959 are counted as irrigated farms. 

Land in Irrigated Farms.— Data for land in irrigated farms ac- 
cording to use relate to the entire acreage in these farms, in- 
cluding land that was not irrigated. 

Land Irrigated. — Data for land irrigated relate only to that 
part of the land in irrigated farms that was watered by artificial 
means at any time in 1959. Separate figures are given for farms 
reporting land irrigated by sprinklers whether or not the land 
was also irrigated by other means. Additional figures are given 
for farms reporting land irrigated by sprinklers only. Data 
on sprinkler irrigation were not obtained in the 1954 census. 

Irrigated Cropland Harvested. — The data for irrigated crop- 
land harvested relate to all irrigated land from which crops 
were harvested in 1959, regardless of the method of irrigation. 
An instruction on the questionnaire reminded enumerators and 
respondents to include irrigated land from which hay was cut, 
irrigated land in both bearing and nonbearing fruit and nut 
crops, and irrigated land from which volunteer crops were 
harvested. Each irrigated acre was to be reported only once, 
regardless of how many crops were harvested from it. 

Other Irrigated Land. — This classification was obtained by 
subtraction of the acreage of irrigated cropland harvested 
from the acreage of total land irrigated. It represents primarily 
irrigated cropland not harvested and irrigated pasture or 
grazing land. 

Farms Irrigated By Number of Acres Irrigated. — All farms on 
which any land was irrigated in 1959 are classified according 
to the number of acres irrigated in county table la for the 17 
Western States, Louisiana, and Hawaii. This classification is 
based on total land irrigated. Therefore, it includes not only the 
irrigated land from which crops were harvested but also all other 
irrigated land, regardless of use. 

Land Irrigated By Source of Water. — The agriculture question- 
naire contained a question as to what proportion of irrigated 
water used on the farm in 1959 was obtained from ground- 
water, surface-water, and irrigation-organization sources. Re- 
spondents were asked to report separately the percentage of 



XXII 



UNITED STATES CENSUS OF AGRICULTURE : 1959 



water obtained from each source. The number of acres that 
were irrigated by water from each source or combination of 
sources was calculated during office processing operations by 
applying the percentages to the total land irrigated. 

Ground-water sources relate to wells (pumped or flowing) and 
springs ; surface-water sources relate to streams, lakes, reservoirs, 
and sewage and drainage ditches. For each of these sources, 
only water obtained by pumps or other works operated as part 
of the operator's own farm or as part of another single farm was 
to be included. Irrigation-organization sources relate to irriga- 
tion enterprises organized to supply water to a group of farms, 
regardless of how or where the enterprise obtained the water. 
The irrigation enterprise may be a legal organization or a group 
of farmers informally organized to operate a supply ditch or 
other works to provide water for their own farms. 

Land-Use Peactioes 

Summary Information. — The 1959 data for land-use practices 
are estimates based on reports obtained from only a sample of 
farms. Comparable data are not presented for 1954 because 
questions about land-use practices were included on the 1954 
questionnaire for only a limited number of States. The various 
land-use practices relate to methods for reducing soil erosion, 
either by improving the soil, controlling the run-off of water, or 
reducing the blowing of topsoil. 

Cropland in Cover Crops. — The data relate to land on which 
cover crops were turned under for green manure in 1959 and 
which was then planted to another crop. The entire acreage of 
cover crops so used was to be reported even if the following crop 
failed. 

Cropland Used for Grain or Row Crops Farmed on the Contour. — 
This item relates to land on which grain or row crops were 
planted in level rows around the slope of a hill. 

Land in Strip-Cropping Systems for Soil-Erosion Control. — Strip- 
cropping was defined as the practice of alternating close-sown 
crops with strips or bands of row crops or of alternating either 
close-sown or row crops with bands of cultivated fallow land. 
The published data refer to the total acreage of all fields and 
tracts in which strip-cropping was practiced in 1959. 

System of Terraces on Crop and Pasture Land. — This item re- 
lates to the acreage in ridge-type or channel-type terraces con- 
structed on sloping cropland and pastureland. 

Livestock and Poultry 

Inventories. — Data for livestock and poultry on farms relate 
to the number on hand at the time of enumeration. All live- 
stock and poultry, including those being kept or fed under con- 
tract, were to be enumerated on the farm or ranch where they 
were, regardless of who owned them. Livestock in transit from 
one grazing area to another or grazing in national forests, graz- 
ing districts, open range, or on land used under permit were to be 
reported as being on the place where the person who had control 
over them had his headquarters. 

The time of year at which livestock and poultry are enumerated 
affects the data. Therefore, the date of enumeration needs to 
be considered when totals for the various censuses are compared. 
Both the 1959 and the 1954 census data represent fall inven- 
tories. These censuses came at a time of large-scale movement 
of flocks and herds from one range to another, from ranch to 
feed lot, and from farm or ranch to market. 

The censuses of 1920, 1925, 1935, and 1945 were taken as of 
January 1 and those of 1930, 1940, and 1950, as of April 1. A 
count made in April varies considerably from one made in Jan- 
uary. In most areas a large niunber of animals are born between 
January and April. A considerable number of older animals die 
or are sold during the same period. In the range States, along 



with the change in season and grazing condition, sheep and cattle 
are moved from one locality or county to another. This movement 
may affect the comparability of data for counties and, in some 
cases, for States, The comparability of data by age has been 
affected also by changes in the questions from one census to 
another. 

Milk Cows, Cows Milked, Milk Produced, and Butter. — Data on 
the number of milk cows, cows milked, and milked produced relate 
to the day preceding the enumeration. Data for butter churned 
were obtained only for 14 States and relate to the calendar week 
preceding the enumeration. The data for cows milked yesterday 
and milk produced yesterday are not given in this volume. These 
figures were obtained primarily to serve the needs of the U.S. 
Department of Agriculture in making monthly and annual esti- 
mates of milk production. The.se figures can be made available, 
at a small cost, to others who express an interest in them. 

Whole Milk and Cream Sold. — Data for whole milk and cream 
sold relate to the entire year 1959 and are estimates based on 
reports obtained for farms in the sample. All milk and cream 
sold from the farm (except quantities purchased from some 
other place and then resold) were to be Included, regardless 
of who shared the receipts. The questionnaire provided three 
alternative units of measure for reporting the quantity of milk 
sold — pounds of milk, gallons of milk, and pounds of butterfat. 
The respondent was thus permitted to report quantity according 
to the unit of measure in which payment was received. In the 
State and county tables, the data for milk are given in the unit 
of measure most commonly used in the State. Pounds of butter- 
fat were converted into gallons or pounds of whole milk on the 
basis of the average butterfat content of milk as shown by data 
furnished by the Agricultural Marketing Service of the U.S. 
Department of Agriculture. 

Sows and Gilts Farrowing. — In the 1959 census, data were ob- 
tained for the number of litters farrowed between December 1, 
1968, and June 1, 1959, and from June 1 to December 1, 1959. In 
the 1954 census, data were obtained for the sows and gilts that 
farrowed rather than for the number of litters. 

Sheep, Lambs, and Wool. — In the 19.59 census, questions about 
sheep, lambs, and wool were asked in all States. Data on 
shearings and on amount of wool shorn were obtained for lambs 
and sheep separately. In the 1954 census, sheep and lamb inven- 
tories were not obtained for Florida, Georgia, and South Carolina. 

Goats and Mohair. — In 1959, questions on goats, kids, and mo- 
hair appeared on the questionnaires for the following nine States : 
Arizona, California, Missouri, Nevada, New Mexico, Oklahoma, 
Oregon, Texas, and Utah. In 1954, corresponding data were ob- 
tained for Louisiana, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Oregon, Texas, 
Washington, and selected counties In Missouri. 

Bees and Honey. — No questions on bees and honey were in- 
cluded on the questionnaires for either the 1959 or the 1954 
census. In 1959, however, enumerators were instructed to ob- 
tain agriculture questionnaires for places not having agricultural 
operations if they were engaged in beekeeping. The number of 
hives of bees and the amount of honey sold were to be reported 
in the "Remarks" space of the questionnaire. Data for bees 
and honey are not included in this report. 

Value of Livestock on Farms. — To obtain the value of livestock 
on farms, the number of each class of livestock or poultry on hand 
was multiplied by the State average price for 1959, as furnished 
by the Agricultural Marketing Service of the U.S. Department of 
Agriculture. Comparable data for 1954 were compiled by the 
same method on the basis of average prices for that year. 

Sales of Live Animals. — Data for the number and value of ani- 
mals sold alive in 1959 are estimates based on reports for sample 
farms only. Corresponding data for 1954 were obtained for all 
farms. The dollar value of sales was obtained from the farmer

for cattle, calves, and horses and mules. Average value per head 
for other livestock sold was obtained from the U.S. Department 
of Agriculture. In the 1959 census, respondents were asked to 
report separately the number of live animals already sold and the 
number estimated to be sold between the time of enumeration and 
the end of the year. This separation of reports for the number 
sold and to be sold was designed to assure more complete coverage 
of all livestock sales made during the year. In the 1954 census, 
only totals for the entire year were obtained though reference 
was made to animals to be sold between enumeration and the end 
of the year. 

Sales of Poultry and Poultry Products. — For both the 1959 and 
the 1954 Censuses, sales of chickens were obtained for two groups : 
(1) broilers and (2) other chickens. The enumeration of broiler 
sales presents prob'ems arising from the varied contractual ar- 
rangements under which broilers are produced. The question- 
naire contained an instruction to the effect that all broilers grown 
for others under contract were to be reported as sold. During 
office processing operations, the data reported for inventories and 
sales of chickens four months old and over, chicken eggs sold, and 
broilers sold were carefully examined. Obvious inconsistencies 
indicating confusion between broilers and other chickens were 
corrected on the basis of estimated values and, for sample farms, 
on the basis of data reported for expenditures for feed, poultry 
and livestock purchases, hired labor, etc. 

Questions relating to poultry other than chickens (and broilers) 
were generally the same In 1959 as In 1954. In the 1959 census, 
however, only total numbers were obtained for turkeys and turkey 
fryers raised and for turkey hens kept for breeding whereas the 
1954 questionnaire asked for a breakdown between light and heavy 
breeds. Also, for poultry other than chickens and turkeys, the 
1959 census obtained the number sold whereas the 1954 census 
obtained the number raised. 

Classification of Fabms 

Scope of Classification. — Data for land in farms, and for crop- 
land harvested in farms classified by size, by color of operator and 
by tenure of operator were tabulated for all farms. However, 
most of the detailed data by size of farm, by color of operator, by 
tenure of operator, by economic class, and by type of farm are 
estimates based on farms in the sample. The farm classifications 
by size of farm, color of operator, tenure of operator, economic 
class of farm, and type of farm were made in the processing 
office on the basis of data reported on each questionnaire. 

Farms by Size. — Farms were classified by size according to the 
total land area established for each farm. The same classifica- 
tion was used for all States. According to definition, a farm is 
essentially an oi)erating unit, not an ownership tract. All land 
operated by one person or partnership represents one farm. In 
the case of a landlord who has assigned land to croppers or other 
tenants, the land assigned to each cropper or tenant is considered 
a separate farm even though the landlord may operate the entire 
landholding as one unit in respect to supervision, equipment, rota- 
tion practice, purchase of supplies, or sale of products. In some 
parts of the South, a special Landlord-Tenant Questionnaire was 
used to assure an accurate enumeration of each unit within a 
multiple-unit operation. A change was made in the size classifica- 
tion for 1959, as contrasted with several preceding years, by sub- 
dividing the 1,000-acre-and-over group and by combining two 
previously recognized groups, viz., 10 to 29 acres and 30 to 49 
acres. 

Farms by Color of Operator. — Farms were classified by color of 
operator into two groups, "white" and "nonwhite." "Nonwhite" 
Includes primarily Negro and Indian oi)erators but also some of 
other racial origin. 

Enumerators were instructed to report the race on the basis of 
their own observation whenever possible rather than by asking the 
respondent 



Farms by Tenure of Operator. — The classification of farms by 
tenure of operator was based on data reported for land owned, 
land rented from others or worked for others on shares, land 
managed for others, and land rented to others or worked on shares 
by others. The same basis of classification was used in 1959 
as in 1954. 

For 1959, each questionnaire was coded, during the editing proc- 
ess, to indicate whether it represented a farm operated by a full 
owner, part owner, manager, or tenant. The sample question- 
naires for tenants were given a code to indicate the kind of 
tenant. 

The various classifications of tenure, as used for the 1959 census, 
are defined below : 

a. Full Owners operate only land they own. 

I>. Part Owners operate land they own and also land rented 
from others. 

c. Managers operate land for others and are paid a wage or 
salary for their services. Persons acting merely as care- 
takers 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 ac- 
count was considered as one farm and the land managed for 
others as a second farm. If, however, he managed land for 
two or more employers, all the managed land was considered 
to be one farm. 

d. Tenants rent from others or work on shares for others all 
the land they operate. They are further classified, as de- 
scribed below, on the basis of rental arrangements In regard 
to the payment of cash rent, sharing of crops, sharing of 
livestock or livestock products, and the furnishing of work 
power by the landlord. 

(1) Cash Tenants pay cash rent, either on a per-acre basis or 
for the farm as a whole. 

(2) Share-Cash Tenants pay part of the rent in cash and part 
in a share of the crops and/or of the livestock and livestock 
products. 

(3) Crop-Share Tenants pay a share of the crops but not of the 
livestock or livestock products. 

(4) Livestock-Share Tenants pay a share of the livestock or 
livestock products. They may or may not also pay a share of 
the crops. 

(5) Croppers are tenants whose landlords furnished all the 
work animals or tractor power. They usually work under 
the close supervision of the landowners or their agents, or 
other farm operators. Also, the land assigned to them is 
often merely a part of a multi-unit operation. Croppers may 
or may not also pay cash rent or a share of crops, livestock, 
or livestock products. Data for croppers are available for 
only 16 southern States and Missouri. 

(6) Other Tenants are those who did not qualify for inclusion 
in any of the foregoing subclassifications. They may have 
had the use of land rent-free or in return for a fixed quantity 
of products, payment of taxes, maintenance of buildings, etc. 

(7) Unspecified Tenants are those for whom the rental arrange- 
ment was not repyorted. 

The definition of each subclass of tenant was essentially the 
same for earlier censuses as for 1959. In 1945, however, the 
enumerator was asked to determine the subclass of tenants 
whereas in other censuses all classifications were made during 
the processing of questionnaires on the basis of the data 
reported. The procedure used in 1945 may have affected the 
comparability of the data, especially for cash tenants and 
share-cash tenants. 

Farms by Economic Class. — The totals for farms by economic 
class are estimates for all farms made on the basis of data re- 
ported only for the sample farms. The economic classifications 
represent groupings of farms that are similar in characteristics 
and size of operation. The economic classes were established on 
the basis of one or more of four factors: (1) total value of all 
farm products sold, (2) number of days the farm operator worked 
off the farm, (3) the age of the farm operator, and (4) the re- " 
lationship of income received by the operator and members of his 
household from nonfarm sources to the value of all farm products 
sold. Institutional farms, Indian reservations, agricultural ex- 
periment stations, and grazing associations were always classified 
as "abnormal." 



XXIV 



UNITED STATES CENSUS OF AGRICULTURE : 1959 



The total value of farm products sold was obtained by addi- 
tion of the reported or estimated values for all products sold from 
the farm. The value of cattle and calves, horses and mules, dairy 
products, some poultry products, vegetables, nursery and green- 
house products, standing timber, and miscellaneous forest prod- 
ucts was obtained from the farm operator during the enumera- 
tion. The quantity sold was obtained during enumeration for 
corn, sorghums, small grains, hay, small fruits, some of the for- 
est products, chickens and chicken eggs, hogs, sheep, and goats. 
To obtain the value of sales of these products, the quantity sold 
was multiplied by State average prices. 

For each of the other products, the entire production was mul- 
tiplied by the State average price. If the resulting value amount- 
ed to $100 or more, the entire quantity produced was considered 
as sold. This procedure was followed only in establishing the 
economic class and the type of farm but was not used in estab- 
lishing the total value of products sold from the farm. (See 
p. XXV.) 

Farms were grouped Into two major categories, commercial 
farms and other farms, mainly on the basis of total value of prod- 
ucts sold. The 1959 class intervals and some of the criteria for 
determination of a given class are different from those used in 
1954 and in 1950. In general, for 1959, all farms with a value 
of sales amounting to $2,500 or more were classified as commercial. 
Farms with a value of sales of $50 to $2,499 were classified as com- 
mercial if the farm operator was under 65 years of age and (1) he 
did not work off the farm 100 or more days during the year and 
(2) the income received by the operator and members of his 
family from nonfarm sources was less than the value of all farm 
products sold. The remaining farms with a value of sales of $50 
to $2,499 and institutional farms and Indian reservations were 
included in one of the groups of "other farms." 

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

Value of Farm 
Class of Farm Products sold 

I $40,000 and over 

II $20,000 to $39,999 

III $10,000 to $19,999 

IV $5,000 to $9,999 

V $2,500 to $4,999 

VI* $50 to $2,499 

•Provided the farm operator was under 65 years of age, and — 

(1) he did not work off the farm 100 or more days, and (2) the In- 
come that he and members of his household received from nonfarm 
sources was less than the total value of farm products sold. 

Other farms were divided into three economic classes as 
follows : 

a. Class VII, Part-time. — Farms with a value of sales of farm 
products of $50 to $2,499 were classified as "part-time" if 
the operator was under 65 years of age and he either worked 
off the farm 100 or more days or the income he and members 
of his household received from nonfarm sources was greater 
than the total value of farm products sold. 

b. Class VIIX, Part-retirement. — Farms with a value of sales 
of farm products of $50 to $2,499 were classified as "part- 
retirement" if the farm operator was 65 years old or over. 
Many of these are farms on which the Income from nonfarm 
sources was greater than the value of sales of agricultural 
products. Others are residential, subsistence, or marginal 
farms. In previous censuses, the age of the farm operator 
was not a criterion for grouping farms by economic class. 
Since the number of elderly people in our population has 
been steadily increasing during recent years, a separate 
classification for farms operated on a part-retirement basis 
was considered important for an adequate analysis of the 
agricultural structure of a county or State. 

c. Class IX, Abnormal. — All institutional farms and Indian 
reservations were classified as "abnormal," regardless of the 
value of sales. Institutional farms include those operated 



by hospitals, penitentiaries, schools, grazing associations, 
government agencies, etc. 

Farms by Type. — The data for farms by type are estimates 
based on data tabulated for the farms in the sample. The 
type represents a description of the major source of income from 
farm sales. To be classified as a particular type, a farm had to 
have sales of a particular product or group of products amounting 
in value to 50 percent or more of the total value of all farm prod- 
ucts sold during the year. 

The types of farms, together with the products on which type 
classification is based, are as follows : 



Type of Farm 



Cash-grain 



Tobacco 

Cotton 

Other field-crop. 



Vegetable 

Fruit-and-nut 



Poultry . 
Dairy _ 



Livestock other than 
dairy and poultry 



Livestock Eanches_ 



General- 



Miscellaneous. 



Source of Cash Income 

(Products with sales value representing 
50% or more of total value of all farm 
products sold) 

Corn, sorghums, small grains, soybeans 
for beans, cowpeas for peas, dry field 
and seed beans and peas. 

Tobacco. 

Cotton. 

Peanuts, potatoes (Irish and sweet), 
sugarcane for sugar or sirup, sweet 
sorghums for sirup, broomcorn, pop- 
corn, sugar beets, mint, hops, and 
sugar beet seed. 

Vegetables. 

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

Chickens, chicken eggs, turkeys, and 
other poultry products. 

Milk and cream. The criterion of 50 
percent of total sales was modified in 
the case of dairy farms. A farm hav- 
ing value of sales of dairy products 
amounting to less than 50 percent of 
the total value of farm products sold 
was classified as a dairy farm, if — 

(a) Milk and cream sold accounted 
for more than 30 iiercent of the total 
value of products sold and — 

(b) Milk cows represented 50 percent 
or more of total cows and — 

(c) The value of milk and cream sold 
plus the value of cattle and calves 
sold amounted to 50 percent or 
more of the total value of all farm 
products sold. 

Cattle, calves, hogs, sheep, goats, wool 
and mohair except for farms in the 17 
Western States, Louisiana, and 
Florida that qualified as livestock 
ranches. 

Farms in the 17 Western States, Louisi- 
ana, and Florida were classified as 
livestock ranches if the sales of live- 
stock, wool, and mohair represented 
50 percent or more of the total value 
of farm products sold and if pasture- 
land or grazing land amounted to 100 
or more acres and was 10 or more 
times the acreage of cropland har- 
ve.'ited. 

Field seed crops, hay, silage. A farm 
was classified as general also if it had 
cash income from three or more 
sources and did not meet the criteria 
for any other type. 

Nursery and greenhouse products, forest 
products, mules, horses, colts and 
ponies. Also all institutional farms 
and Indian reservations. 



INTRODUCTION 



XXV 



The type classifications were essentially the same for the 1959 
as for the 1954 census except that tobacco farms and livestock 
ranches were not separately classified in 1954. Tobacco was in- 
cluded as one of the crops used in the classification of "other 
field crop" farms in 1954. The farms classified as livestock 
ranches in 1959 would have been classified as "livestock other 
than dairy and poultry" in 1954 without regard to the acreage in 
pasture. 

Value of Farm Products Sold. — Data for the value of farm prod- 
ucts sold in 1959 were obtained by enumeration for some prod- 
ucts and by estimation for others. The questionnaire used for 
the 1959 census provided for farm operators to report value of 
sales for the following products : 

Vegetables Miscellaneous poultry products 

Nursery and greenhouse prod- Milk and cream 

ucts Cattle 

Standing timber Calves 

Miscellaneous forest products Horses, mules, colts, and ponies 

For all other agricultural products, the value of sales was esti- 
mated during the office processing. The State average prices 
used for calculating the value of farm products sold were fur- 
nished to the Bureau by the Agricultural Marketing Service of 
the U.S. Department of Agriculture. One of three following pro- 
cedures was used. 

(1) For the products for which data on quantities sold were 
obtained during enumeration, the State average prices were mul- 
tiplied by the county totals of the quantities reported as sold or 
the quantities reported as produced for sale. The following prod- 
ucts were covered by this procedure : 

Corn for grain Fence posts 

Sorghums for grain, seed, sirup, Sawlogs and veneer logs 

or dry forage Christmas trees 

All small grains Chickens (broilers and others) 

Hay crops Chicken eggs 

All berries and small fruits ' Hogs and pigs 

Firewood and fuelwood Sheep and lambs 

Pulpwood Goats and kids 

^ Adjustment made for cranberries based on Cranberry Payment 
Program. 

(2) For most of the agricultural products which are cus- 
tomarily raised for sale, the entire quantity produced was 
considered to be sold. The State average prices were, accordingly, 
multiplied by the county total of production. The following crops 
were covered by this procedure : 



Cotton 

Popcorn 

Sugar beets for sugar 

Broomcorn 



Sugarcane for sugar 

Tobacco 

Wool 

Mohair 



(3) For all other crops, the State average prices were mul- 
tiplied by the quantities sold as estimated on the basis of crop- 
disposition data furnished by tlie Agricultural Marketing Service, 
data reported in questions for "other crops" on the 1959 question- 
naire, or data obtained from earlier censuses. 

For all tree fruits, nuts, and grapes, the entire quantity pro- 
duced was considered as sold, except for apples, apricots, sour and 
sweet cherries, peaches, plums, prunes, avocados, tangerines, 
oranges, and grapefruit in States where a portion of the crop 
was not harvested or was subjected to excess cuUage as indicated 
by data obtained from the Agricultural Marketing Service of 
the U.S. Department of Agriculture. 

The data for 1959 are comparable with those for 1954 since 
essentially the same procedures were used in both censuses for 
estimating quantities and values of farm products sold. In 1959, 
as in 1954, data for the sales of farm products represent total 
sales for the entire farm, regardless of who shared the receipts. 
For tenant-operated farms, the landlord's share of agricultural 
products was considered as sold provided the products were 
moved off the tenant farm. All crops, livestock, and poultry 
raised under a contract arrangement were considered as sold 
from the farm where they were raised. For institutional farms, 
all agricultural items produced on land operated by the institu- 
tion and consumed by the inmates were to be reported as sold. 

All sales data relate to one year's farm operations. Crop sales 
are for crops harvested during the crop year, whether the crops 
were actually sold immediately after harvest or placed in storage 
for later sale. Sales of livestock and livestock products relate 
to the calendar year, regardless of when the livestock or prod- 
ucts were raised or produced. All wool and mohair reported 
as shorn or clipped was considered as sold. 

Enumerators were instructed to record gross values of quanti- 
ties sold, with no deductions for feed, seed, fertilizer, water, labor, 
or marketing costs. For some products, however, net values may 
have been reported. In the case of milk, particularly, some farm 
operators may have reported the payments they received as the 
gross value of sales, even though the buyer had deducted handling 
and hauling charges before making payment. Adjustments were 
made in the data reported only in cases of obvious error.
