It is important that a farmer know the labor requirements in the productions of the various crops and in the production of the various classes of livestock, and that he know what influence a combination of crops and stock has on the distribution of farm labor. It is a cardinal principle of successful farm management, that to be profitable a farm system must provide for a fairly steady and regular employment of labor. So it shall be the purpose of this paper to show from actual records to what extent and in what kinds of production the farm labor can be managed so as to provide for a steady and regular employment.
