Texas leads all other states in number of farms and ranches. The Lone Star State ranks first in the nation for total number of farms with just over 248,000, which account for more than 127 million acres of agricultural land. Half of the value of products sold in Texas as of 2017 were the Cattle and Calf sector. The second ranked category was Poultry and Eggs. The main commodities in Texas agriculture are cotton, corn, feed grains (sorghum, milo, etc.), rice and wheat.

With its early and longer growing season, cow calf operations are very prevalent from east to west. In most years the wheat grown in the western half is grazed by many cattle from outlying states. Oklahoma is known for “cheap gains” on yearling cattle. Oil and Gas Production is found throughout most the state and is an income driver for most ranches. Horses are raised throughout the state and many BLM horses are grazed in the NE part of the state. Main Commodities are beef, soybeans, wheat, horses & hay.

80 percent of Alabama’s agriculture is livestock and livestock products. 65 percent of the total ag sales in the Yellowhammer State are in poultry and eggs. Alabama also accounts for 43,000 farms spread across 8.9 million acres. The main commodities in Alabama agriculture are poultry, cattle and calves, greenhouse and nursery, cotton, and soybeans
