Agross farm Income in Wisconsin for
1933 shows a total of $205,691,000. This
is, a little over 21 million dollars above
the revised estimate for 1932 but still
53 million dollars under 1931 and less
than half of the high point of post-war
farmi income reached in 1929. Tlhe Iii-
itex of agricultu ial income for W isconl-
sin in 193:3 is, 92.8 percent of the 1910-
14 average compared with 83 Per'cent
Iin 1932. While there has been some
ilallrox ~ment during the past year, the
iiieiu,iiit 1v,- of agriculture is still
11niuch lower than it has been at any
one ti ne in the, iast 20 yeairs excepit in
