Dramatic drop in Kansas farm income

Kansas farm income hit a 30-year low last year, Kansas Agland reported. The average accrual net farm income for nearly 1,200 Kansas Farm Management Association farms was $4,568 in 2015. That’s a huge drop from the previous five years, when net farm income averaged $120,000. This year doesn’t look much better, as crop and cattle prices remain low. – Phillip Brownlee
