The South Dakota Agricultural Experiment Station has published five reports over the last 20 years on the communal farms of the Hutterite Brethren in South Dakota. The present report provides an update. Its material comes from a 1974 field survey in which the leaders in all the Hutterite colonies in South Dakota were interviewed for population and agricultural information. Also included are revisions and additions to general information on Hutterite life and colony organization.
