Abstract

Crop and livestock production are important economic components for many rural com­ munities. In 1992, Iowa led the nation in corn and hog production, and ranked second, third, seventh, and eighth, respectively in soybean, cattle and calves, poultry, and dairy cow pro­ duction. Livestock and livestock products generated over 64% of the state's total cash farm receipts during 1992—more than $6.5 billion sales at the farm level.
