NEW WISCONSIN CUSTOM FARM RATE GUIDE NOW AVAILABLE
What to charge for planting corn, mowing hay, and many other farm field operations are some of the most common questions received by Extension offices. Often the answer can be found within the Wisconsin Custom Rate Guide.
Just in time for the 2021 growing season, the UW Madison Division of Extension, in cooperation with the USDA National Ag Statistics Service and the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture Trade and Consumer Protection, has released a new update to the popular Wisconsin Custom Rate Guide. The guide lists updated costs for common custom farming operations. The survey was conducted in 2020 and was expanded to include more custom operations and equipment rentals than previous versions. The 2020 Custom Rate Guide, released in April 2021, replaces the 2017 version. The new guide can be found online at: https://tinyurl.com/t228hy3n
Copies of the new guide can also be obtained from the Pierce County Extension Office at 715-273-6781.
