U.S. Farm Operations and Adult Farm Workers: In 2007, 2.2 million farms were in operation in the U.S. Approximately 5.3 million adults worked on U.S. farms in 2004, including 1.8 million hired workers and 3.5 million adult family members. The majority of farms in the U.S. do not utilize hired workers. Less than 20% (434,000) of farms reported having hired workers 20 years of age and older. In 2006, an estimated 59% of the 4.2 million tractors in use were equipped with a roll-over protective structure (ROPS).
