A survey of agricultural custom operators is conducted in Nebraska every two years. A total of 217 survey responses were received in 2020 with information reflecting the current rates charged by custom operators for machine hire services and other work they provide for neighboring farms and ranches or as part of a business enterprise that covers a broader area. Survey participants identified by Nebraska Extension personnel, or in some cases, self-identified custom operators, received a paper survey or a link to the custom rates survey online.

Please give attention to age requirements, as there are some restrictions. If you are planning on asking 4-H Staff for a Letter of Recommendation, please allow 2 weeks or more notice to allow adequate time to complete before the deadline.
