This year marks the first publication of results from a survey of operators and providers for custom service rates related to livestock in Nebraska.
The survey report is divided into sections based on the types of custom services, which include common custom livestock services, custom feed preparation and delivery charges, custom land/pasture maintenance services, fencing and trenching, livestock hauling, haying and baling, equipment rental, and manure hauling and application.
Most services list the number of reported responses, the average reported rate and a range that reflects the minimum and maximum rates reported. Reported rates include charges for the use of necessary equipment, fuel, labor and supplies provided by the custom operator.
This webinar will review the new report, how the information was gathered, and how operators and providers can use the data when deciding on rates.
