The first column of the table lists the product (commodity).
The second column of the table lists a number representing the dollar value of the product. This number is not the dollar value of the product. This number represents the dollar value of the product in thousands of dollars. For example, the number listed for the value of cattle and calves raised in Nevada is 211,140. This number represents a dollar value of $211,140,000 (211,140 x 1,000): two hundred and eleven million, one hundred and forty thousand dollars.
The third column of the table lists the percent (part) of the total agricultural value produced in Nevada. For example, cattle and calves account for 46.5% of Nevada's total agricultural production value. The dollars generated by the cattle and calves add up to over 2/5 of Nevada's total agricultural production.
