Farm Schedules

Is there anyway to find the actual Farm Schedule? My great Grandfather, Madison F. Wilson, is listed as being on Farm Schedule 204 in Montgomery County Mississippi, Winona, District 75 for the 1900 Census and we thought that would be some good/interesting information to have available. Is it online anywhere or is it something you would have to go to the courthouse/archives wherever to physically look up?

We have tried different ways of looking it up and have had no success, perhaps we are using the wrong term or something.

Thank you in advance for any help or suggestions!

You can see what information was asked on the agricultural schedules at http://www.census.gov/history/pdf/agcensusschedules.pdf (The 1900 starts on page 12)

However, according to "The Source" the ag schedules for 1900 and 1910 were destroyed by Congressional order some time ago, apparently once statistics were gathered.

The 1880 agricultural schedules are available on microfilm for most states. I imagine the films are at the National Archives or its regional branches, http://www.archives.gov/locations/ or at the state level. Some states are online at Ancestry but MS does not appear to be (see http://search.ancestry.com/search/db.aspx?dbid=1276)
