This study provides a comprehensive view of the organization,
management, and financial performance of U.S. broiler farms. Using
data from USDA's Agricultural Resource Management Study (ARMS,
formerly known as the Farm Costs and Returns Survey), we examine
farm size, financial structure, household income, management
practices, and spousal participation in decisionmaking. We compare
broiler operations with other farming enterprises and their
earnings with that of the average U.S. household. Because most of
the 7 billion broilers produced in the United States in 1995 were
raised under contract, we also explore the use of contracts and the
effects of contracting on the broiler sector.
