   The number of farm jobs dropped from 450 to 350, a 22 percent decline, in Modoc County, and from 1,120 to   760, a 32 percent decline, in Siskiyou County. Overall, the number of people employed in Siskiyou County declined from 16,870 in October to 16,210 in November and fell from 3,510 to 3,360 in the same period in Modoc County.
