The study reported was intended to find answers to some of the questions that face farmers in north central South Dakota concerning their most profitable production plans under wheat-acreage restrictions. The method used was to estimate future rates of production for crops and livestock in the area; to estimate future prices and costs and usual size of farm; and to budget alternative crop and livestock organizations so as to find the one that will be most profitable and stable.
