The executive director of the Kansas Farm Management Association at K-State, Kevin Herbel, breaks down the crop and livestock enterprise numbers from the recently-released Kansas net farm income report for 2016. He talks about the profitability of each of the major crops last year, as well as the returns to cow-calf and backgrounder cattle production, and things that made the difference between high-profit and low-profit operations within a given enterprise.
