The data in this report have been obtained from a selected number of farms located in Central South Dakota. It is a summary of data gained in a pilot program for the development of a computerized farm financial information system. For this reason the data in this report cannot be interpreted as representative of all farms or areas in South Dakota. However, it can serve as a guide to those persons with farm operations similar to the ones included in this report. Data is presented in this report on the average of all farms participating in the record keeping activities. It includes data for the high one third of the farms and the low one third of the farms. The high and the low are in terms of net farm income realized and not the high and low for each individual factor. Such data is useful to acquaint oneself with the range of results as well as the average.
