CHANGES IN FARM ORGANIZATION and farm earnings have been
more numerous and more striking during the past 25 or 30 years
than at any other time in the long history of agriculture. Some of these
changes and the resulting effect on earnings are brought out in the financial
and production records kept by a group of farmers in southeastern
Minnesota. These farmers were members of the Southeastern Minnesota
Farm Management Service. During the first three years, 1928 through
!930. only farms in Dodge, Freeborn, Goodhue, Rice, Steele, and Waseca
Counties were included. Later it was expanded to include farms in Dakota.
LeSueur, Mower, Nicollet, Olmsted, Scott, Wabasha, and Winona
Counties, as well as a few in adjoining counties.
