2000 Farm Income Results Show Improvement

About This Publication

Average farm operator returns for labor and management on 3,143 Illinois farms increased in 2000 compared to returns experienced by producers in 1999. The 2000 returns were the highest since 1996. Good corn and soybean yields across most of the state along with continued strong livestock returns for most livestock enterprises were the major reasons for the improved incomes. Government farm program payments also continue to be an important factor in supporting farm incomes.
