Farm layout involves the location of the fields with respect to the farmstead and public highways, the size, shape and number of fields, and the location of hog-lots, feed yards, etc. In arranging or re-arranging a farm layout the most important considerations are convenience and economy of operation. An ideal farm layout is so arranged that there shall be a minimum of time consumed, no retracing of steps and no lost motion in doing the routine work of the farm.
