In Farm Capital
Value of Assets In
creased In 17 Out
Os Last 20 Years
For every dollar of net in
come earned in the farm opera
tion itself, the nation’s fanners
as a whole have averaged, more
than 40 cents a year over the
last two decades in the steady
appreciation in value of the farm
plant and its working capital.
This is reported by the U. S.
Department of Agriculture, in a
broad analysis of the structure
and economics of farming.
The figures show that the
capital value of farm assets in
creased in 17 out of the last 20
years, topped off by the period
since 1955 when hte rise aver
aged more than $1,500 a year per
farm, the equivalent of 60 per
cent of the average of somewhat i
over $2,500 a year in net in
come of farm operators per farm
for those years. The peak was
in 1950 when the rise in the
capital value of farm assets
averaged $2,850 per farm, nearly

For the 1940-59 period as a
whole, the Department of Agri
culture reports that farm assets
.had an aggregate increase in
value of $109.6 billions, net of,
new investments, or an average
of SSV4 billions a year. This
figures out to an average of just;
under SI,OOO per form per year
over the period, or 43 per cent
as large as total net income from
the farming operation in those i
years. The dominant factor has
been the rise in farm peal es
tate under the combined im
petus of inflation, farm en
largement and urban expansion.
Discussing theV rise in farm
capital values the Department of
Agriculture refers to 'the view
that capital appreciation has be
come a clearly recognizable sup
plementl to farm income. It also
notes that changes in value
of farm assets have a bearing 1 ,
qri the-economic. welfare of farm
operators and their families, es
pecially owner operators.
■ Actually, there are other fac
tors which have been having a
significant impact on. the eco
nomic status of the. farm papu
lation beyond 'the ups and downs
of farm income or the rise in
the value of the farm plant. In
come from nonagriculiural sourc
es in particular has been going
up steadily, exceeding $6 billions
annually since the early Fifties
and representing the equivalent
of around 46 per cent or more of
the net income from farming in
most recent years.,, Earnings
from nonfarm jobs represent the
biggest part of this off-the-farm
income, but a -growing part is be
ing contributed by 'the return on
savings, retirement plans, annui
Factor of Government Aid
And intimately related to the
entire farming operation is a
massive structure of Government
aid. This has grown greatly in
the past decade. Federal budget
expenditures for agricultural pro
grams have risen from $2,8 bil
lions in the 1950 ‘ fiscal year to
$6.5 billions in the 1959 fiscal
year, and are now equivalent
to over SI,OOO per farm annually.
The Department of Agriculture
figures include all farms so
classified by the Census, such as
part-time and residential units,
which add up to about a third
of all farms and where farming
is more away of J life than a
means of livelihood.
