This number represents a dollar value of $431,201,000 (431,201 x 1,000): four hundred and thirty-one million, two hundred and one thousand dollars.
The third column of the table lists the percent (part) of the total agricultural value produced in Utah. For example, cattle and calves account for 34.4% of Utah's total agricultural production value. The dollars generated by cattle and calves add up to over 1/3 of Utah's total agricultural production.
