16 Golesbura Reoister-Mail, Golesburg, III, Wed^Aug, 28, 1963 Analyze Farming Incomes WASHINGTON (UPD—An Agriculture Department study of farm costs and returns shows that net farm incomes in 1962 were higher than a year earlier on 24 and lower on 15 of the 39 important types of commercial farms. The department said changes in income varied considerably even within major groups of farms. The only group where changes in income were in the same general direction for all farms were in western livestock ranches. Even in this group, the increases varied from 1 to 73 per cent. Net farm income increased in 1962 on six of the seven types of wheat farms while four of the five dairy types of farms had lower incomes. The department said the greatest change in income occurred on wheat - small grain - livestock farms in the northern Great Plains. Net farm income in creased from an average of $135 a farm in 1961 to $11,081 in 1962. This great disparity occurred be cause a severe drought in 1961 cut farm income to its lowest since 1937. The largest decline in farm in come was 49 per cent on non-irrigated cotton farms in the high plains of Texas. Incomes in 1961 on these farms were record high Returns in 1962 were near those in years previous to 1961. The department said that all of the farm types in which in comes increased in 1962 either had higher farm production or re ceived higher prices for products sold, or both. The increased production was largely responsible for higher incomes on 10 of the farm types. Prices received averaged lower than in 1961 on these farms. MONMOUTH m tot , Cotmpofidant SOl ft. H Si.
