This is a graphic presentation of crop and livestock changes which have occurred in South Dakota during the period, 1924-44. The study of changes which have come about during the past twenty years should be a useful guide in planning adjustments for the transition and post-war periods. Drought conditions accompanied by low prices during the "thirties" disrupted the crop and livestock pattern. More favorable conditions in recent years have brought about a fuller use of agricultural production facilities in the state. The present war-time level of crop and livestock production will need to be adjusted to new demand conditions. These adjustments should be made to fit the different areas of the state. It is of utmost importance that farmers and ranchers make adjustments which will provide them with the combination of crop and livestock units which will result in a stable and profitable system of farming.
