Nebraska Farm Custom Rates are released to help farmers & landowners determine fair rates for many different field actions. These rates are updated every 2 years.

Every two years a survey of custom operators is conducted to determine the current rates charged for specific machinery operations. The survey is divided into two parts. Part I includes the spring and summer operations such as planting, tillage and baling hay. Part II includes information about fall operations such as harvesting and hauling as well as miscellaneous custom work activities on the farm.
