Attention, Colorado Producers and AgriBusiness Owners:

The deadline to complete the survey has been extended to March 15, 2021.

Show your love for Colorado Agriculture by completing Colorado State University’s annual Custom Rates Survey. Take just 10 minutes to complete the survey before March 15, 2021.


What is the Custom Rates Survey?

Colorado State University Extension conducts an annual survey of custom rates charged for various crop and livestock operations and lease arrangements in Colorado in the preceding year. Data is collected from agricultural producers, landowners and managers, lenders, agricultural consultants, machine operators, and Extension agents. Results of the survey are used by producers, ag lenders, county assessors, the Colorado Department of Agriculture, land appraisers, and more. Custom Rates in Colorado is one of the most widely used publications available from the CSU Agriculture and Business Management Team.

Why should I complete the survey?

The Custom Rates Report will allow you to advertise custom services or locate and hire custom service operators in your area.

More responses ensure more accurate data and a more complete list of rates for today’s practices. These determined rates influence land appraisal values, your property taxes, and more.

Information about Custom Rates is used by elected officials to inform federal, state, and local policy, including crop insurance.

Your responses are safe and anonymous.
When and where can I access the survey?

The Custom Rates Survey will be available February 14 – March 2, 2021 through Colorado State University:
