With 12 million acres in agricultural production, Utah ranks 35th out of 50 states in the nation in total number of farms. Close to 22% of the land area is in farms, but less than 3% is cropland. Cattle and calves are Utah's number one agricultural commodity, accounting for over one-third of the state's total agricultural production. Dairy products and hogs are also considered important livestock products. The state is a top producer of brine shrimp. The most important crop grown in Utah is hay with close to three-fifths of the cropland devoted to the crop. Utah is well known for its homegrown sweet corn and tomatoes which are sold across the state at local farmer's markets.
