FILE - This Feb. 5, 2014 file photo shows Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack speaking in the White House briefing room in Washington. The number of U.S. farms is declining even as the value of their crops and livestock has increased over the past five years, a new government census of America's agriculture says. Also, farmers are getting older _ the average age was 58.3 years. But Vilsack points to a bright spot: a small rise in the number of farmers between 25 and 34 years old.
