ANNUAL ESTIMATED REPLACEMENT FARMER OPPORTUNITIES IN NEBRASKA.
GENEREUX, DOUGLAS G.
AN ESTIMATE OF ANNUAL FARMER REPLACEMENT NEEDS IN THE 93 COUNTIES OF NEBRASKA WAS COMPUTED BY A FORMULA DEVELOPED BY CLARENCE BUNDY AT IOWA STATE UNIVERSITY AND APPLIED TO CENSUS DATA. THE FORMULA WAS USED TO DETERMINE THE NUMBER OF FARMER RETIREMENTS, OR FARMERS LEAVING FARMING, AND FARM CONSOLIDATION RATES. ACCORDING TO THE ESTIMATES, 951 FARMING OPPORTUNITIES WOULD BE AVAILABLE ANNUALLY TO 34.9 PERCENT OF THE ESTIMATED 2,725 17-YEAR-OLD RURAL MALES IN NEBRASKA IN 1969. FARMING OPPORTUNITIES ESTIMATES RANGED FROM 31.4 PERCENT IN KNOX COUNTY TO 18.0 PERCENT IN DOUGLAS COUNTY WITH AN AVERAGE OF 10.2 OPPORTUNITIES FOR EACH OF THE COUNTIES. THE GREATEST NEED FOR REPLACEMENTS EXISTED IN THE EASTERN AND CENTRAL SECTIONS OF THE STATE. (JM)
