Max Armstrong offers some interesting numbers from the latest Census of Agriculture

Max Armstrong shares some stats from the Census of Agriculture. A number that jumps out is 57.5. He offers a deeper look at the number of farms and the number of farmers (which is rising). Max also found that the number of female farm producers rose as the number of males fell. He digs a little deeper into the stats in this 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.
