2008 Farm Custom Rate Guide for Southern Virginia
Farm Business Management Update, April 2008 - May 2008
Eric Eberly (email@example.com), Extension Agent, Farm Business Management Agent, Central District
Virginia Cooperative Extension conducted a mailed written survey during October, 2007 to farmers/landowners in Southern Virginia1. The Central District Farm Business Management Agent tabulated 73 usable surveys representing 323 quotes. Jobs with less than three quotes were not reported.
The table below reports the job, the unit for which the job is quoted (acre, hour, bale, etc.), and the number of useable responses for each job, followed by the low and high quote for each job. The last column states the Southern Virginia average. Users of this data should take into account higher fuel prices that have occurred since the survey data was collected.
