Ohio Farm Custom Rate Survey – 2016

Survey Link

We need your assistance in securing up-to-date information about farm custom work rates, machinery and building rental rates and hired labor costs in Ohio. This information is updated frequently and published by OSU Extension. It is widely used across the state, so we need the best information available.

Please respond even if you know only a few rates. You do not need to fill out every field in the form, just the sections that pertain to your farm operation. 

We want information on actual rates, either what you paid to hire work or what you charged if you perform custom work. Custom Rates should include all ownership costs of implement & tractor (if needed), operator labor, fuel and lube.

Thank you for your time!
