Max Armstrong's Daily Updates

Farm Progress America, August 22, 2017

Max Armstrong looks at farm numbers reported by USDA.

Max Armstrong takes a deeper look at a report reviewing the number of farms in the United States - which is a farm that earned at least $1,000 in a year. That involves a lot of small farms, but there is a falling number even with that small income amount. He offers a look at some key figures from a National Agricultural Statistics Service report.

Farm Progress America is a daily look at key issues in agriculture. It is produced and presented by Max Armstrong, veteran farm broadcaster and host of This Week in Agribusiness.
