Jerry, Do not know if this will help but the book
Das Kolonisationswerk Josefs II in Galizien
- Darstellung und Namenlisten -
by Ludwig Schneider states the following:
The Austrian government on 22nd December 1772 determined these numbers
(Brawers V): developed fields of 2,007,659 koretz (1 koretz = 1,056 square
Klafter, 1 Klafter = 6 ft. ergo, 1 koretz = 38,016 sq., ft. or about .88
acre), of which 488,694 are winter fruit, 1,041,493 with summer fruit,
fallow land of 547,471, gardens 268,777, meadows 769,746, pasturelands
78,148 Koretz. The livestock were: oxen 342,851, cows 649,819, calves
555,277, horses 296,658, sheep 538,685; poultry; geese 26,330; turkeys
136,810, guinea fowl 9,078. In addition to the foregoing farm lands are also
