This report represents one in a series of Wartime studies of agricultural adjustments in South Dakota to meet changing demand conditions. The general purpose of the study is to indicate some of the changes that have taken place during the present war period and to estimate desirable crop and livestock adjustments for 1945 and the transition period and some methods of achieving these objectives. This project is a part of the year-to-year national study of production adjustments in which all states are cooperating with the Bureau of Agricultural Economics, United States Department of Agriculture. The study was conducted under the general supervision of the Technical Sub-Committee which consists of members of the Agricultural Experiment Station, Extension Service, Bureau of Agricultural Economics, Soil Conservation Service, Agricultural Adjustment Administration, Agricultural Research Administration, and Farm Security Administration, Basic data for the study was furnished chiefly by the South Dakota crop and Livestock Reporting Service. The Agricultural Adjustment Administration also contributed data. The Agricultural Economics Department, assisted by personnel from the Bureau of Agricultural Economics, coordinated the various phases of the work and carried out the greatest part of the actual computations.
