Every two years Nebraska custom operators are surveyed to determine the current rates charged for machine custom applications in the state. It is divided into two parts, Part I is spring and summer applications. Part II is made up of the fall applications and miscellaneous categories. Full summaries from this survey, including district as well as state data, are published as a University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension Circular (EC) 823. The Nebraska Farm Custom Rate Survey report is one of Nebraska Extension’s most-requested publications. Many Nebraska farmers and ranchers inquire about prevailing rates paid for certain kinds of custom farm machine operations.
