Excerpt from Production Efficiency on New England Dairy Farms, Vol. 4: Adjustments in the Organization of Machinery and Equipment
Both the increase in numbers of machines and the general rise in prices have increased the value of the. Machinery on farms. If the equipment on 28 Connecticut farms which were a part of the sample for this study had been bought new at 1949 prices, the investment would have averaged per farm, or about $380 per cow. Investment in machinery would equal invest ment in livestock and it would be about half the investment in land and buildings.
One aspect of the mechanization of dairy farms is the duplication of machines from farm to farm and the small annual use of each machine. Many specialized machines are used for only a few hours in a year.
A tractor-drawn corn planter, for example, costing about $225 with an annual ownership cost of $35 per year, may be used only three or four hours in a year. A baler involves a capital outlay of as much as and has an annual ownership cost of about $580, yet it may be used no more than 50 hours in any one year.
