Project '80 : Rural Michigan Now and in 1980. Economic Prospects of Farmers. Research Report 47, Farm Science.

To estimate the magnitude of changes in agriculture, past agricultural trends in Michigan were summarized and projected to the year 1980. Some major trends in the 1950's were: (1) The number of farms and cropland harvested declined at about the same rate as for the United States, (2) Total units of...

520 |a To estimate the magnitude of changes in agriculture, past agricultural trends in Michigan were summarized and projected to the year 1980. Some major trends in the 1950's were: (1) The number of farms and cropland harvested declined at about the same rate as for the United States, (2) Total units of livestock showed a sharp decline, (3) The size of Michigan farms increased at a rate less than the national average, and (4) Michigan farmers have a high comparative advantage working off-the-farm at higher than average factory rates instead of spending full time on a small farm. Some 1980 projections are: (1) continued reduction in land in farms, (2) continued reduction in number of farmers, (3) a sharp reduction in the number of farms, (4) further specialization of farms, (5) markedly greater capital and credit needs per farm, (6) far less total labor needs in agriculture, (7) higher managerial requirements needed to successfully operate the larger farm business, and (8) greater need for education for both those remaining in agriculture and those moving out.
