Before the growing season gets here I am conducting a land rent survey of the cropland for the county to better respond to questions about current county cropland rental rates. Changing land use patterns, growing farm operations, rising input costs and weak commodity prices are all factors that can affect cropland rental rates for both farmers and landlords alike. If you are willing to participate, please complete the survey by February 29th at:
Your individual responses are anonymous. Results will be tabulated and summarized to determine average rental rates, as well as the range in cropland rental rates, for each township.
When filling out the survey, please indicate whether you are an owner, renter, or both; the rental rate you paid or received ($/a) for 2019 or the amount you have negotiated for 2020; the township where the parcel is located; and the estimated average corn yield for the past three years (or mark an ‘X’ if the parcel is a pasture or permanent hay).
The results of this survey will be aggregated by township and presented at county Extension meetings. Additionally, a summary of the results will be used to evaluate county forage and grain cost of production estimates, as well as to answer questions from individuals regarding Shawano County land rental rates.
Thank you in advance for taking the survey. Again, all results are anonymous! If you have any questions or would like a copy of the results, please call our office at (715) 526-6136.
