In the May 12 issue of this newsletter, Gary Bredensteiner discussed the drop in farm income for 1998. He used data from the Nebraska Farm Business Association (NFBA) and the Nebraska Farm and Ranch Management Program (NFRMP) annual summaries to show the impact on typical farms. Low prices for all major commodities was the primary cause of the sharp reduction in income for 1998.
