Genesee County Farming Sectors’ Output Value and Employment, 1997. Farming Sector Dairy Farm Products Vegetables Hay Grain & Oilseed Crops Cattle Other TOTAL Output (Million $) $51.1 $49.4 $17.8 $10.6 $5.1 $6.9 $140.9 Employment 190 265 503 115 45 76 1,194 The total value of Genesee County’s farm output was $141 million in 1997 and accounted for nearly 1,200 workers. Farm output represents 5 percent of the county’s total estimated economic output of $2.6 billion and less than 4 percent of the county’s total employment of 31,000 workers. However, if total farm output were reduced to zero, it would have a much larger impact as economic activity would be reduced in other industries and sectors of the local economy. Loss of the farming sector in Genesee County would result in a $200 million loss of total economic output in the county and over 2,100 jobs in the local economy.
