This pamphlet was prepared especially for teaching guide in farm management courses at South Dakota State College. It should help acquaint students with the geography of crop and livestock production in the states and regions of the United States as well as in the various counties of South Dakota. This material should also be of value to research and extension workers in agriculture. Vocational agricultural instructors may also benefit by studying the maps and other data presented. The concentration of specific crop and livestock production in the various areas of South Dakota and the United States is not due to chance, but is greatly influenced by such factors as climate, soil, topography, distance from market, competition, and other important factors. Material for the United States and State maps was obtained chiefly from the 1945 U. S. Census. The first 34 pages is devoted to the United States and the balance of the report to South Dakota.
