Title: Understanding variability in farm incomes can lead to more effective safety net programs
Author: Mussell, A.; Moore, T.; McEwan, K.; Duffy, R.; Institute for Community Engaged Scholarship
Abstract: Farm income stabilization programs should not rely on farm size alone to determine payment, since size does not accurately predict farm profitability. While profitability varied a great deal in all size categories, farms in the highest sales bracket had both the highest – and the lowest – profit margins.
