LABOR AND MANAGEMENT COMPONENTS IN ECONOMIES OF FARM SIZE STUDIES

Data from North Dakota farmers are used to develop regression equations estimating seasonal use of farm operator labor and management time by farm size. Management time has a large fixed component and increases linearly with farm size. Annual labor supervision time per man-month supervised increases when more than 15 man-months of hired or family labor are used.
