UNITED STATES FARM PRODUCTION EXPENDITURES

    This section summarizes the latest information from the Farm Costs and Returns Survey (FCRS) conducted, in part, by the USDA, National Agricultural Statistics Service as part of a national survey of over 17,500 farms and ranches contacted February through April 1996. Farm balance sheet and income indications were summarized from 1995 FCRS data. The FCRS target population was defined as "all establishments which sold or would normally have sold at least $1,000 of agricultural products during the previous year". Those establishments are not only traditional agricultural operations such as grain farms and dairy operations, but also specialty farms such as orchards, nurseries, and those producing fish in captivity.

    U. S. Farm production expenditures totaled $168.5 billion in 1995, up 4.9 percent from the revised 1994 total of $160.7 billion. The largest contributors to the increase were feed (up 8.4 percent), fertilizer (up 9.3 percent), interest (up 9.0 percent), and labor (up 6.7 percent). Feed accounted for 14.5 percent of the U.S. total production expenses while farm services accounted for 14.1 percent of the total. The farm services category includes expense items such as custom work, utilities, marketing changes, veterinary services, transportation costs, and miscellaneous business expenses.

    The average expenditures per U.S. farm in 1995 were $81,480 compared to $78,018, as revised for 1994. On the average, U.S. farm operations in 1995 spent $11,847 on feed; $11,509 on farm services; $7,737 on both rent and labor; and $7,253 on livestock and poultry purchases. Revised estimates for 1994 indicated that U.S. farms spent an average of $10,974 on feed; $11,168 on farm services; $7,478 on rent; $7,284 on labor; and $7,381 on livestock and poultry purchases.
