This pamphlet is the annual summary of Economic Project 264, '"Farm Business Management Data and Practices in South Dakota," for 1958, the third full year of its operation. A total of 53 cooperators turned in records for summary and analysis. The purpose of this project is to obtain data on costs, returns and organization on a few farms and ranches of various types in the different types of farming areas in the state. This information is used by the Experiment Station, the Extension Service, and the State College proper, in farm planning, budgeting, and teaching. It can also be of use to the record-keepers themselves for locating "weak spots" in their businesses and planning improvements, and to other farmers and ranchers for making comparisons.
