GOVERNOR DAN THORNTON

It is with genuine pleasure that

I endorse this volume of

Colorado Agricultural

Statistics and recommend it for thoughtful consideration by all of our citizens, especially those working in and with the agricultural industry both inside and outside the state’s borders.

This bulletin portrays most effectively the significance of

Colorado’s greatest industry

.

.

.

agriculture.

The facts herein contained are of obvious value to farmers and ranchers who are producers of our crops and livestock.

They are of value also to processors of these commodities and those agencies which transport th«m to consumer markets.

These data are also useful to the agencies of county and state government in the economic development of our natural resources.

They serve as a guide to formulating useful agricultural legislation and development of wise agricultural policy by our farm organization and commodity group leaders.

The development of these statistics is particularly significant in that they are the product of cooperative effort between the Agricultural

Department of the

State of

Colorado and the U.

S.

Department of

Agriculture.

These agencies are regularly surveying the agricultural industry in all its branches in order to measure adequately the significant changes which are taking place from season

2

AGRICULTURAL, STATISTICS to season and year to year.

I most respectfully request those who produce our crops and livestock and those who process, store and transport them to cooperate with these service agencies through returning their questionnaires so that they may continue to compile a faithful record of this important and diversified industry.

Much of the county data contained in this bulletin results from the crop acreage census taken by county assessors and their deputies each year.

I would like to take this opportunity to urge them to perform these duties faithfully and to recommend that producers place their crop acreages fully on record with these county officials.

In so doing, they will serve the best interests of the agricultural industry and the state and national welfare.

In closing

I would like again to recommend this bulletin for thoughtful consideration by consumers and all others who have a stake in

Colorado’s greatest

Industry.

DAN THORNTON,

Governor of

Colorado.

WHY

CROP

AND

LIVESTOCK REPORTS

A man’s judgment is no better than his facts and crop reports are the basic facts of

Agriculture.

They aid farmers in planning their production and marketing.

They are essential in enacting wise legislation affecting Agriculture.

They are the basis for analysis of agricultural and other business conditions.

They enable railroads to products.

make a better distribution of cars for moving farm

They give producers the same foresight to future price trends that organized dealers possess.

They are a check on fluctuation in price.

Uncertainty of supply promotes undue fluctuation in price.

They are indispensible in times of war because food is as essential as ammuntion and weapons of war.

They are the best basis for adjusting supply to demand which is highly essential if maximum price is to prevail.

They aid farm organizations, schools and others in planning constructive programs, and the prospective purchaser of land.

They give information on surplus and deficit areas of production making possible a more economical distribution of products.

They eliminate the ill effects of misleading reports that might be circulated for private gain, if there were no official reports.

They are a guide to farm resources and for developing irrigation, electric new power, location of food processing resources such as and other factories.

They reduce the amount of speculation in farm products.

Speculation thrives on uncertainty.

Unbiased official crop reports reduce uncertainty which limits speculation.

They indicate potential buying power thereby enabling the manufacturer to meet the probable demand.

With economical production and distribution, the manufacturer can sell at a lower price than he could with uncertain demand.

They reduce the risk of ownership of buyers of farm products which enables them to do business on a smaller margin.

Under the stimulus of competition, they pay producers higher prices than could be paid if uncertainty of production existed.

They provide an accurate, unbiased picture of

Colorado’s agriculture.

The facts on present and prospecti%'e supplies furnish a sound basis for judgment and action by farmers, other individuals, business men, railroads, crop and livestock interests and governmental agencies.

AGRICULTURAL

STATISTICS

THE

IMPORTANCE OF AGRICULTURE

IN

COLORADO

AS

A

PRODUCER

OF

NEW WEALTH

AND

AS A

PRODUCER

OF

DOLLAR INCOME

IN

RELATION TO “TOTAL INCOME PAYMENTS”

Agriculture is the principal industry in

Colorado and the principal producer of new wealth.

In recent years the annual income from sale of principal farm products both crop and livestock has exceeded one-half billion dollars annually. In 1950 this total was

506 million dollars and in 1951, 537 million dollars.

These totals represent the original cash

“take” of people in agricultural pursuits at the farm or ranch gate.

They in no way take into account the fact that the processing of these raw materials provides at least onethird of the value added by manufacture in the state’s industrial plants

(milling, meat packing, sugar refining, etc.).

In 1947 the value added by manufacture of all commodities in

Colorado industrial plants amounted to

287 million dollars, according to the

U.

S.

Department of

Commerce report on Census of

Manufacturers.

(Cash receipts from sale of farm products totalled 502 million dollars in that year.)

Neither does the cash receipts from sale of farm products figure include the important contribution these raw materials make to the traffic of the transportation industry, both rail and truck.

Likewise this total does not measure the business created for the bag and package industry in the form of burlap and feed sacks, baskets, crates and minor containers for fruits, vegetables and other principal perishable commodities, nor does it include given to the overall any measure of the impetus economy

— farm machinery and equipment, fuel, building, etc.

These raw materials have an important way of pyramiding in their effect on the industry and commerce of the state.

In the early days Colorado was known largely as a mining state, and these new dollars as they came from the state’s mines, primarily in the form of precious metals, added tremendous purchasing power and did much to build the state’s early large buildings, resort hotels, and its railroads and mountain roads.

This new wealth had tremendous effect in developing pioneer country because the purchasing power of these

“mining” dollars was great.

It is obvious, however, from the table below that mining, including coal and petroleum, now in no way compares with agriculture in importance as an income producer or a producer of raw materials for processing.

The tourist business is important in that it brings to the state considerable quantities of new cash which would otherwise mostly remain outside the state’s borders, but even this important industry is comparatively small when related to the importance of agriculture.

The table facing this page shows the total cash payments to individuals as determined by the

Department of

Commerce.

In these totals are included the income from agriculture as shown under the heading, “Cash Receipts from

Sale of

Farm

Products.”

Other items of income mentioned previously, such as payments to factory workers, workers for transportation agencies, are in no way credited to agriculture.

The figures are, therefore, and for some other reasons, not strictly comparable, but they do serve to emphasize the importance of the agricultural industry.

AGRICULTURAL

STATISTICS

COLORADO LAND

AREA,

OWNERSHIP AND

OPERATION of

The table below gives the principal types of ownership and supervision

Colorado lands.

The subject of land ownership, especially as it relates to that owned or supervised by agencies of the Federal Government, has been one of increasing interest in recent years.

Although the information given in the facing table is for the most part clear, some discussion and explanation seem necessary.

The area owned by the

Federal

Government and supervised by the various Federal agencies totals nearly 25 million acres or

37.4

percent of the

66% million total acres of

Colorado land area.

Within this total the land undei supervision of the

Department of

Agriculture comprises approximately 14% million acres.

The

Forest Service supervises about

13% million acres of the

Department of

Agriculture holdings and the

Soil

Conservation Service over million acres.

Forest Service lands

% have been under government supervision for many years but those under the jurisdiction of the

Soil

Conservation Service were acquired as a part of the land purchase program of the mid-1930’s and are located mostly in

Weld and Baca

Counties.

The Department of the Interior supervises over

10 million acres of which nearly

8% million acres are in the so-called public domain and are primarily grazing lands.

Another principal supervising agency in the

Department ot the Interior is the

Bureau of

Indian

Affairs with nearly as Indian reservations.

% million acres held

The

National

Park

Service holdings total a little over and

% million acres and consist primarily of

Rocky Mountain

National

Park

Mesa

Verde National Park.

Smaller areas comprise the several national monuments.

million

The Bureau of

Reclamation supervises something less than acres principally in connection with the Colorado-Big

%

Thompson water diversion and power development project.

It is noteworthy that the

Departments of the

Army, together with the

Navy and Air

Force,

Atomic Energy Commission, hold nearly

% million acres.

These totals are given in detail below.

Land under supervision of the Colorado State

Land

Board exceeds

3 million acres or about

4.6

percent of the state’s land area.

These lands represent those reserved for school fund purposes.

The latest report of the U.

S.

Bureau of the

Census reveals that nearly

38 million acres of land are classified as being in farms and ranches.

This total comprises

57.1

percent of the state’s land area.

In appraising this total and this percentage, it should be borne in mind that much of the state-owned school land is also included in the area reported by the

Census as being in farms and ranches.

The amount of this duplication is not accurately known.

For purposes of comparison, it is significant that the 1950 report of the

Colorado

Tax Commission shows 37% million acres of agricultural land as being on the tax rolls.

This total does not include mineral lands and other miscellaneous land not in farms and ranches, or the more than

3 million acres of school land since school lands are not taxed.

:

STATE OF COLORADO

7

37.4

As presented in the preceding statement and in the tabular summary below, percent of the Colorado land area is under the supervision of

Federal

Government agencies,

57.1

percent is in farms and ranches,

4.6

percent in school land and the remaining

0.9

is in other lands which would include the spread of cities, villages, etc.

Dry cold spring weather with late killing frosts in

1950 gave spring planted crops a poor start and caused much freeze damage to fruit.

Serious drought developed during the spring and early summer in southeastern

Infestation of aphis was unusually severe in oats and barley fields in the northern part of the state season indications.

Some recovery of late maturing crops was possible during the fall months due to the long frost-free growing period in

The spread between the yields of irrigated crops and non-irrigated crops was unusually wide because reservoir water and pump irrigation held up well during the season.

Potatoes

The acreage planted to potatoes in

1950 continued the downwhich had been underway for a number of years and only

Although conditions were not entirely satisfactory throughout the growing season, a very favorable period of late fall weather resulted in unusually high acre yields in northern Colorado, conditions and these same favorable late augmented the yield elsewhere in the state.

Hail loss in the

Corn

The

1950 corn crop of 13,368,000 bushels was considerably smaller than that of 1949 which totalled 16,401,000 bushels and was about average.

Smaller planted acreage in

1950 with larger percentage abandonment than had been experienced in recent years resulted in a sharp reduction in harvested acreage compared with

Barley

Winter barley plantings were large in the fall of 1949 due to the curtailment of winter wheat acreage.

The winter was dry and open and most of this acreage winter killed.

Total plantings of barley (both winter spring) for 1950 harvest and were estimated at 822,000 acres.

It is noteworthy that this was of particular value in

Baca and other southeastern counties where sorghums were planted as a catch crop on abandoned winter wheat ground.

The very late fall enabled these plantings to produce a large quantity of forage and even considerable grain with the result that many cattle were wintered in that area at good returns.

Because such a large acreage of sorghum failed to produce a satisfactory grain yield, the area cut for forage large at 350,000 acres.

1949.

The price received for this roughage averaged and the crop was inventoried in excess of $5 million.

Hay

Crops

Cold, dry weather during the early spring months of 1950 gave hay crops a poor start and held yields generally below those of recent years.

The acreage cut was the lowest in many years and production the smallest in

10 years.

Production was particularly small in relation to the number of hay-consuming animal units.

It is noteworthy that, when hay crops start off poorly in the spring, rarely is this shortage overcome by favorable weather later in the season.

The exceptionally late frost date and favorable growing temperatures which continued late into the fall of

1950 offset a portion of the adverse spring influences, but even these favorable conditions did not overcome the early handicap.

These basic facts are significant in appraising hay crop prospects in future years.

Alfalfa benefitted cattle in sulted in most from the favorable fall conditions, but even so the crop of 1,268,000 tons recent preceding years.

Clover and timothy production was also at a level considerably lower than the preceding year at 195,000 tons and the lowest since

1937.

The crop of other tame hay especially in eastern

Colorado was also short.

Some of the adverse influences which affected small grains resulted in about the usual acreage of such crops being cut for hay and the quantity of this hay harvested in

1950 exceeded that of the previous year.

During recent years, the acreage planted to some crops grown for fresh market has declined significantly, reflecting the scarcity of labor, high cost of production and marketing, and unstable market conditions.

The acreage grown for processing, however, has remained fairly constant.

The rank of vegetables grown in

Colorado in relation to the acreage devoted to each of them is as follows: onions, green peas, lettuce, cabbage, tomatoes, cauliflower, cucumbers, cantaloups, snap beans, carrots, spinach and celery.

The principal crops in the green peas, tomatoes, above group which are utilized for processing are, cucumbers for pickles and snap beans.

Other vegetables such as asparagus, lima beans, table beets, broccoli, sweet corn, green onions, peppers, radishes and turnips are also grown but the quantity is comparatively small.

It is estimated that a of 87,000 tons of good quality vegetables were left unharvested that year because supplies exceeded demand.

Onions

Although production of dry onions has declined sharply since the record high output of 7,290,000

Colorado still ranks near the top among the states in the late storage onion group.

This deal was particularly disastrous for

For more than two decades the larger portion of the acreage devoted to this crop was grown for fresh market consumption but in

1950 canning peas took the lead.

significantly

The acreage grown for fresh market has declined each year since the peak of 14,500 acres were harvested in

1943, while the acreage utilized for processing has shown only a moderate decline.

Only

3,700 acres were harvested for market in

1950, the smallest since 1926.

In 1949, the harvested area amounted to

5,500 acres.

Pea growers have been beset with the difficult problems of labor shortages, high cost of production for the and adverse weather losses, but the factor mostly responsible consistent decline in acreage has been the rapid expansion of the quick-freeze industry in other parts of the country in recent years which has made sharper inroads into the fresh pea market than that of any other vegetable grown in

Colorado.

Production of fresh peas in 1950 totalled 296,000 bushels, valued at $533,000, which amounted to well over half of the Nation’s summer green pea supplies despite the sharp drop in volume.

The

1949 crop of 578,000 bushels was worth

Lettuce

The acreage devoted to lettuce was expanded by more than

50 percent in 1948 and totalled

7,000 acres.

This was the largest area in 16 years, and the acreage has remained at a high level since that date.

However, as a result of a national over-supply, growers have been unable to dispose of these large crops and each year huge quantities of good quality lettuce have been left in the fields.

In 1950, production on

7,400 acres amounted to 888,000 crates but more than half of this lettuce was not harvested and the crop carried a cash value of only $455,000 on the portion marketed.

2,400 acres were harvested and production dropped to 240,000 crates valued at $261,000.

In

1949, a total of

3,500 acres produced

332,000 crates worth

$378,000 to growers.

Approximately

25 percent of of the 1950 crop unfavorable and

19 percent of the 1949 crop were not harvested because markets and the failure of prices received to keep pace with rising operating costs.

Snap Beans

This crop is grown for both fresh market and for processing.

The acreage devoted to fresh markets has declined so consistently through the last just decade that about two-thirds of the crop is not utilized for canning the reverse to the breakdown in the

1930’s.

Production for canning in

1950 amounted to

5,100 tons compared with

6,000 tons in

1949, while the crop produced for fresh market totalled

120,000 bushels in 1950 against

90,000 bushels in

1949.

Approximately

20 percent of the 1950 fresh market crop was not harvested because of slow demand and low prices.

Cattle and

Calves

The number of all cattle and calves on

January

1,

1952, was at a record-high level.

This increase resulted both from a record number of cattle and calves being placed in feed lots and from further increase in the number of stock cattle.

The increase during

1951 was particularly significant of the state because it occurred even though feed was and high priced throughout the territory.

It scarce was in also some parts significant because it followed a rather substantial increase in numbers during

1950.

The record inventory as of

January

1,

1952, is also significant in that it contained a record-high number of cows two years old and over being kept primarily for milking and breeding purposes and also contained a record number of one to two year old heifers being held for replacement.

Both these figures indicate if this high potential calf crops during

1952 inventory is maintained.

The number of milking animals has been on the decline since 1934 and on

January

Even with this sharp decline in numbers, however, milk production has held up quite well due to a general uptrend in dustry.

The number at the beginning of

There is little indication that sheep numbers will again attain this high level because of restricted use of the forest and other public lands as well as the fact that cattle have proven a more profitable ranch enterprise.

Farm flock sheepmen are endeavoring to place their flocks in better condition as revealed by holding of 220,000 ewe lambs for breeding purposes at the beginning of 1952.

January

1952 during 1951 was valued at $44,296,000, an increase of over

$4 million and an increase of about

$18 million from two years preceding.

This value was the highest of record, but there has been substantial decline since that date.

Hogs and Pigs

Hog numbers have shown only moderate variation during recent years, but production declined moderately during

1950 and

1951.

1951, and the 1952 number was less than half that of only

10 years ago.

The value of remaining horses continues at a low level, and the average for all horses and colts on January

1952, was only

$31 per head and the total inventory only

4,000 was valued at little over

Colorado beef and dairy herds have ranged between

600,000 and

700,000 head since 1941, but in several years the number has exceeded

700,000 head.

One of these years was

1951 when births totalled 758,000 head and a record high number.

This resulted from a large percentage of calves born in relation to the number of cows and heifers two years old and over on hand at the beginning of the year as well as the large number of such breeding animals.

Considering the record inventory of cows of breeding age as of

January

1952, indications are that the calf crop of this year will exceed any previous one.

Cattle

Feeding

In sharp contrast with the decline in numbers of lambs being fed, the number of cattle grain-finished in drylots for market has increased sharply in recent years and on January

1,

1951, 229,000 head of cattle and calves were being fattened.

On January

1,

1952, this number set a new high record and totalled 300,000 head of which

260,000 head were in the northern Colorado area.

The

1950-51 deal was a very profitable one, but the

1951-52 deal was less profitable and some feeders experienced significant losses.

Many of these animals were placed in the feed lots at peak

1951 fall prices and were sold on a declining market.

Difficulties were minimized in both seasons by the very favorable fall and winter weather.

The northern Colorado area is particularly favored as a feeding section industry is indicated.

Many new facilities have been built, some the best in the country.

Wool

An average weight per fleece of

1950 produced a total wool clip of 11,098,000 pounds.

This was an increase of

10% over the small

1949 clip when an average fleece of

8.5

pounds yielded an aggregate production of

10,900,000 pounds.

The

Although the which number of sheep shorn declined from

1,215,000 head in 1950 to 1,200,000 head in 1951, a record high weight per fleece of 9.6

Producers received an average price of $1.02

for their

1951 wool and the total value of the crop was estimated at

$11,812,000,

90% greater than the value of the 1950 crop.

Chickens and Eggs

The number of chickens (excluding broilers) produced on farms in

Colorado dropped to 4,531,000 birds in 1950, 12 percent below the

1949 production of 5,144,000 birds.

This represents the smallest production since 1935 and reflects the effect of higher cost of production without a corresponding increase in the value of the finished product.

Of the chickens produced on farms in 1950,

3,399,000 were sold from the farm and

1,443,000 were eaten on the farms where produced.

Eggs produced during

1950 totalled

425,000,000 compared with

400,000,000 in 1949.

Chickens and eggs in 1950 provided a gross farm income of

$15,692,000 compared with

$19,609,000 in

1949.

In

1951,

Colorado farms produced percent over the low 1950 production and

5,347,000 also chickens, exceeding all an increase other years of 18 since

1947.

387,000,000 eggs chickens were produced in

1951, and the gross farm income from and eggs totalled $19,375,000.

in

The commercial broiler industry has expanded significantly in

Colorado recent years.

Despite the somewhat less favorable chicken-feed ratio,

1,638,000 broilers worth

$1,472,000 to producers were raised in 1950 as compared with

1,310,000 birds valued at $1,238,000 in 1949.

Continued expansion of the broiler industry brought production in

1951 to

2,129,000 birds, greater than the 1950 output.

Gross valuation in

1951, including

30 percent consumption in households of producers was

$1,980,000.

Turkeys

Turkeys raised in

Colorado during 1950 numbered

Value of production was estimated at $4,562,000.

No significant change in numbers of turkeys raised took place in 1951 w'hen a total of 721,000 birds were produced.

Value of production, however, increased by

10 percent to $5,452,000 due to a considerably higher value per bird.
