Excerpts from the report Preface: This report is based mainly on information shown in a special tabulation of 1964 Census of Agriculture data for farms with annual sales of $100,000 or more. The tabulation was obtained from the Bureau of the Census, Department of Commerce. This tabulation permits us, for the first time, to present comprehensive national and regional information on the largest farms, by sales group, including farms with annual sales of $1 million or more. These are the latest and only data available nationwide on the largest farms. The data were not available until 1969, and no new data are expected for several years to come. Administrators, legislators, and the general public have expressed widespread interest and concern with respect to large-scale farms. This report will provide information that should help put issues concerning these farms into proper perspective, especially as concerns their importance in the future organizational structure of agriculture.
