Incorporated Wisconsin Firms with Agricultural Incomes: A Descriptive Analysis.
Buse, R. C.; Willett, G. S.
The study was initiated to learn more about incorporated farms in Wisconsin. Specific objective included: listing all corporations in the state with agriculture incomes, acquiring basic structural data in these units, analyzing differences between various types of corporation farms when classified according to nature of ownership, and determining whether there is a large incursion of firms in the form of corporations with characteristics conceptually harmfulto agriculture. On the basis of 90.6o questionnaire response, it was concluded that corporate farm structure in Wisconsin is widely diversified and difficult to characterize or generalize. Variations in size, number of products produced, ownership, and dependence upon agriculture as primary or sole source of income demonstrated the range in differences. There was no evidence that non-agriculturally oriented firms, newly incorporated large firms, or foreign-based operations are making large inroads in Wisconsin agriculture through 1968.
