This pamphlet is the annual summary of the project "Farm Business Management Data and Practices in South Dakota," for 1959. This was the fourth full year of operation of this project. The purpose of this project is to obtain data on costs, return, and organization on farms and ranches in all parts of the state. This data is used by the Extension Service, the Experiment Station, and the College proper for use in farm budgeting and planning and in farm management courses. Along with this, the individual cooperator is able to use this data to improve the efficiency of his own operations and compare it with that of the other members of the project.
