Introduction
The intent of the Custom Rates Surveys is to provide producers with additional information to assist with their farm management decisions. In addition, custom operators can use these rates as a guide in negotiating settlements for work performed or to compare their own rate with the market rate in a certain area. These rates are only intended as a guide and are not to be interpreted as the rates you must charge or pay.

The data presented in this report was obtained by contacting custom operators and dealers and thus represent actual charges. However, sample size is often small, and thus, reported rates should only be used as a general indication of rates being charged for various custom operations in Alberta. Please note that some instances may be Good Neighbor Rates as opposed to Commercial Rates. The reader should also be aware that varying conditions in different areas of the province can significantly affect the rates charged from year to year. Custom Rates reported in this publication are not to be interpreted as recommended rates.

The quality of the data is dependant on the cooperation received by producers as well as commercial custom operators. The department gratefully acknowledges the contribution of the producers and custom operators who willingly co-operated by providing information about their custom and rental rates.

The Hay & Silage Making Operations report contains information on custom rates of swathing, chopping, hauling, packing and bagging silage. In addition, the report contains custom rate information on hay mowing and conditioning, baling and stacking and hauling. The report also contains information on custom rates of long distance hay hauling.
