Abstract

A picture of extremes in farm financial conditions emerges from our analysis. Forty percent of all farm operators are performing extremely well. Operators in this group show significantly above-average earnings, strong equity positions, and sizable off-farm incomes. About 10 percent of all operators are failing and have little chance of recovery. The remainder, half of all U.S. farms, are either marking time or facing significant reorganization in order to remain in business.
