FOREWORD BY THE GOVERNOR 

My Dear Fellow Citizens: 

From a strictly materialistic point of view the j^reatest treasure of the 
Ti-easure State is its auricultnral potentialities — developed and undeveloped. 

The divei-sity of these potentialities is almost limitless when development 
is carried to the ultinuite throufih co-operative and scientific methods of 
research, backed liy systematic manap-emcnt and the always necessary basic 
ingredient of i)l;iin evcry-day hard work. 

^lontana lias iiuiny other resources of which she is justly proud and which 
add g-reatly to her aui-a of fame. However, none of them holds forth sndi 
a treasury of possibilities for a lirowin^-. far-seeing- Treasni'e State ])opulace 
as does ap-riculture. 

Combinin<i- theii- efforts over the period of the i)ast tAvo years, tlie !Mon- 
tana Department of Agriculture and the Bureau of Agricultural Economics 
of the United States Department of Agriculture have gathered togethei- M'hat 
appears to be the very best of available statistical material for this ^Montana 
Agricultural Bulletin. 

This bulletin offers a most complete summary of the State's progress in 
its fundamental business of farming, presented comprehensively t)y counties, 
and given additional clarit}' through the liberal use of tables, illustrative maps 
and charts. 

I feel sure the efforts extended in its compilation will be appreciated and 
that appreciation demonstrated through widespread and frequent reference 
to its contents. 

Cordially yours, 




Governor.

MONTANA AGRICULTURE 

MOTIVES FOR THIS BULLETIN 

The Bureau of Agricultural Economics serves as the principal agency of 
the United States Department of Agriculture for collection, compilation and 
dissemination of agricultural statistics. Througli its field offices a wide 
variety of data relating to farm and ranch production, income and expenses 
are gathered, assembled and distributed to the public. Information received 
in each field office is summarized and processed into state reports which are 
then transmitted to the Crop Reporting Board in Washington, D. C, for 
review and use in preparing National Reports. Most of the information is 
supplied voluntarily by farm and ranch operators and processors of farm 
products through mail questionnaires. While the regular program of work 
requires the assembly of data on a State basis, tabulations of figures appearing 
on returned questionnaires are made by counties and crop reporting districts. 
(See map inside front cover for outline of crop reporting districts.) Under a 
co-operative agreement between the Montana Department of xVgriculture, 
Labor and Industry, and the Bureau of Agricultural Economics, with the 
Montana Water Conservation Board and Montana State Chamber of Commerce 
assisting, facilities have been made available to prepare statistics for Montana 
counties contained in this bulletin. 

A large number of requests for county data received by the various local 
State and Federal agencies concerned with Montana Agriculture, manifest 
the need for such information. Such inquiries have come from farm oper- 
ators within the State asking for detailed information for their areas to be 
used as a basis for planning their cropping and marketing programs, and from 
persons residing in other States who are contemplating a farming or ranching 
career in ^Montana. Acreages irrigated and the amount of crops produced 
under irrigation in each count}^ is needed as a basis for planning future irri- 
gation projects. To arrange for economical and equitable distribution of cars 
and movement of crops and livestock to market, railroads are in demand of 
county statistics. All industries connected with agriculture — machinery 
manufacturers, fertilizer manufacturers, seed houses, etc. — call for such 
information to serve as guides for determining quantities to be manufactured,, 
the location of manufacturing plants and methods of distributing their prod- 
ucts. Bankers and P^inanciers base credit for production, storage and market- 
ing of crops and insurance comp^uies base insurance and farm loans on thia 
information. It serves as a guide to business men for expanding or contract- 
ing their operations. State and Federal planning, development and action 
agencies set up their programs from these statistics. Directly or indirectly,, 
the agricultural industry affects the welfare of all inhabitants of the country^ 
and while a few uses of agricultural data are mentioned here, the scope is 
virtually unlimited. 

CONTENTS OF BULLETIN' 

Tliis bulletin presents, through a display of tables and charts, a historical 
picture of Montana's agricultural production and income. It is comprised of 
three general types of data outlined as follows : 



-Most of the county statistics for 1944 and 1945, and irrigated and non-irrigated 
state statistics for the years 1929 to 1945 were prepared by Michael T. Solan, 
John R. Russell, and P. J. Creer. Other employees in the office of the 
Agricultural Statistician assisted with the copy work of data printed. 



2 AGRICULTURAL STATISTICS 

I. State Historical Statistics: 

1. Acreajies planted, acreages harvested, yield per harvested acre, pro- 
duction, price, value of production and value of production per acre, 
for principal crops grown in the State. 

2. Livestock and poultry inventory numbers, value per head and total 
value as of January 1 each year. 

3. Production, disposition and production value of livestock, poultry, 
livestock products, dairy products and poultry products. 

4. Annual cash receipts from crops, livestock and livestock products, and 
government payments. 

II. State Statistics Relating to Irrigated Lands, 1929-1945: 

1. Acreages harvested, yield per harvested acre, production, total value 
of production, and value per acre of principal crops grown on irrigated 
lands in the State. 

2. Acreages harvested, yield per harvested acre, production, value of pro- 
duction and value per acre of principal crops grown on dry lands 
in the State. 

III. County Statistics : 

1. Acreages harvested, yield per harvested acre and production, from irri- 
gated and dry lands for principal crops, 1944 and 1945. 

2. Livestock inventory numbers, 1940 to 1945. 

MONTANA'S POSITION IN AGRICULTURE 

Favored by its rich natural resources set in a laud of scenic beauty, 
Montana enjoys one of the top positions in the country for farming and ranch- 
ing. During the three-year period, 1943-1945, it held seventh place among 
all states in the average realized net (keep home) income of farm operators. 
For the year 1944, it ranked third, with an average of $4,173 per operator, 
being exceeded by California and Arizona with $6,679 and $4,270 per operator, 
respectively. During that year Montana contributed 261 million dollars cash 
receipts from agriculture to the nation's total of twenty billion, four hundred 
and thirty million dollars. During that year Montana's crops contributed 136 
million dollars, and livestock and livestock products one hundred twenty- 
five million dollars, ller farmers also received eleven million dollars in the 
form of government payments. 

Montana is recognized as a leading grain and livestock producing State, 
but is also prominent in the production of many other agricultural commodi- 
ties. In 1945 her rank among all States in the production of spring wheat 
was third, for winter wheat, ninth and barley, sixth. In the production of 
alfalfa luiy. she ranked eleventh ; wild hay, sixth ; dry beans, ninth ; dry peas, 
third ; flaxseed, fifth ; and sugar beets, third. In production of mustard seed, 
Montana has no competition. Approximately three-fourths of the country's 
-supply of mustard seed comes from this State. Only Texas exceeds ^loutana 
in the number of lambs raised each year and Wyoniing shares second jilace 
with the Treasure State in wool production. Twelfth position in production 
of beef and veal is held bj- JMontana and she holds a top place in the supply 
of feeder cattle which are shipped to feed lots in Corn Belt States for finishing. 

During 1945, ^Montana farmers harvested crops from 7,739,000 acres, com- 
pared with 6,921.000 acres in 1942. This increase of 12 per cent in cropped 
acreage during the last four years of the war was exceeded only by North 
Dakota which showed a gain of 14 per cent.

MONTANA'S POSITION IN AGRICULTURE 

Favored by its rich natural resources set in a land of scenic beauty, 
Montana enjoys one of the top positions in the country for farming and ranch- 
ing. During the three-year period, 1943-1945, it held seventh place among 
all states in the average realized net (keep home) income of farm operators. 
For the year 1944, it ranked third, with an average of $4,173 per operator, 
being exceeded by California and Arizona with $6,679 and $4,270 per operator, 
respectively. During that ,year Montana contributed 261 million dollars cash 
receipts from agriculture to the nation's total of twenty billion, four hundred 
and thirty million dollars. During that year Montana's crops contributed 136 
million dollars, and livestock and livestock products one hundred twenty- 
five million dollars. Her farmers also received eleven million dollars in the 
form of government paj^ments. 

Montana is recognized as a leading grain and livestock producing State, 
but is also prominent in the production of many other agricultural commodi- 
ties. In 1945 her rank among all States in the production of spring wheat 
was third, for winter wheat, ninth and barley, sixth. In the production of 
alfalfa hay, she ranked eleventh; wild hay, sixth; dry beans, ninth; dry peas, 
third ; flaxseed, fifth ; and sugar beets, third. In production of mustard seed, 
Montana has no competition. Approximately three-fourths of the country's 
supply of mustard seed comes from this State. Only Texas exceeds ^Montana 
in the number of lambs raised each year and Wyoming shares second place 
with the Treasure State in wool production. Twelfth position in production 
of beef and veal is held by ^Montana and she holds a top place in the supply 
of feeder cattle which are shipped to feed lots in Corn Belt States for finishing. 

During 1945, ^Montana farmers harvested crops from 7,739,000 acres, com- 
pared Avith 6,921,000 acres in 1942. This increase of 12 per cent in cropped 
acreage during the last four years of the war was exceeded only by North 
Dakota which showed a gain of 14 per cent. 



STATE OF MONTANA 3 

IRRIGATION IN MONTANA 

Records show that irrigation in ]\Iontana had its bejriniiino- in the Bitter 
Root Valley in 1842, when Father De Smet, of the Catholic Mission, irrip-ated 
a garden planted with seeds from Colvillo, Washington. During the follow- 
ing eight years, wheat, potatoes, and other produce were grown under irriga- 
tion in that settlement. After J\Iajor John Owen purchased the mission build- 
ings and equipment in 1850, irrigation of crops "was continued. 

Following the settlement of Alder Gulcli in Madison County in 1863, 
bottom lands were irrigated with crude and small ditches by miners after 
placer Avorkings gave out. In the Gallatin and Beaverhead Valleys, which 
were among the first to be settled in ^lontana, irrigation developed rapidly. 
Bottom land settlers first built individual ditches to irrigate their private 
lands but it soon became necessary for them to combine and build ditches 
co-operatively for their lands. For many years the direct flow of streams 
was sufficient to meet the seasonal demands for water. As the amount of 
irrigated land increased about each settlement, and the supply of direct flows 
of streams became inadequate, the principal of priority developed, with the 
first in time being the first in right. Construction of stoi'age reservoirs to 
impound flood waters for use as needed, followed as the next major develop- 
ment in irrigation. 

Montana now ranks fourth in the amount of cropland and pasture under 
irrigation. California, Colorado, and Idaho are the tliree leading States. In 
1945, crops were harvested from more than 1,725.000 irrigated acres in this 
State having an aggregate value in excess of forty-eight and one-half million 
dollars. These irrigated acres amounted to 22 per cent of all harvested acres 
and the value of their crops amounted to 31 per cent of the total value of 
all crop production. Importance of irrigation in Montana is appreciated more 
in times of drought than during periods of good rainfall. For the ten years, 
1929-1938, referred to as the drought period, 22 per cent of the harvested 
acreage was irrigated and the value of production from these irrigated acres 
the total. In 1936, the year of most severe drought, 32 per cent of the cropped 
acreage was irrigated and the value of production from these irrigated acres 
was 63 percent of the total. 

Although irrigation is found in all of Montana's o6 counties, most of the 
irrigated land is located in central and western portions. Beaverhead county 
heads the list with approximately 210,000 acres, most of which is wild or 
meadow hay. The other nine leading counties in order of importance are 
Ravalli, Teton, Gallatin, Yellowstone, Madison, Carbon, Lake, Powell, and 
Pondera. 

Virtually all Montana crops are grown to some extent on irrigated land. 
Sugar beets are at the top of the irrigated crop list, with practically all acre- 
age in this category. Dry beans follow as a close second with more than four- 
fifths of the acreage irrigated. Approximately three-fourths of the dry peas 
and two-thirds of the potatoes are now grown under irrigation. xVlfalfa hay 
acreage is 62 per cent irrigated and nearly half of the alfalfa seed and wild hay 
acreage is in this group. Among the grains, oats has been most prominent with 
about 30 per cent irrigated followed by barley with around 15 per cent. Prior to 
1942, a larger percentage of the barley acreage was irrigated ; a sharp expan- 
sion of its acreage since then has been largely on dry land. A small propor- 
tion of the wheat, corn, rye, and flax acreage usually comes under irrigation.
