Open in new window 2020 Iowa Farm Custom Rate Survey

Alejandro Plastina and Ann M Johanns ( March, 2020 )


Many Iowa farmers hire some custom machine work in their farm business or perform custom work for others. Others rent machinery or perform other services. The Iowa Farm Custom Rate Survey was mailed to 298 people by the US Postal Service and 192 people via e-mail in early February 2020. The information below is based on a survey of 106 usable responses and 3,022 custom rates provided by Iowa farmers, custom operators, and farm managers. Fourteen percent of the respondents perform custom work, 15% hire work done, 53% indicated doing both, and 18% did not indicate whether they perform or hire custom work.
