Are you curious what the going rate is for custom work in your area? Take a look at the latest report. Shelley E. Huguley

Have you ever wondered what the going rate is in your area for custom farm work like hauling hay or harvesting wheat?  The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Ag Economics Unit has a helpful publication.

The 2018 Texas Agricultural Custom Rates Report is now available.  This report is based upon survey responses gathered from farmers, ranchers, and other landowners across Texas.  The report divides Texas into four quadrants and then provides survey results for each.  The type of work included in the survey ranges from tractor rental to application of fertilizer and chemicals to harvesting to hay hauling, farm and ranch improvements to cattle hauling.  If you’re curious what common rates are in your area, check out this report by clicking here.
