The cattle industry is the largest component of Wyoming agriculture accounting for over half of all cash receipts. Cattle also led the way in 2014 in terms of value of production at $937 million. All livestock production was valued at $1 billion.
Production agriculture only requires 69 cents of services for each dollar of local tax revenue paid. Compare this to rural residential lands demanding $2.40 in services for each dollar of local tax revenue paid.
