Prices Paid for Standing Hay, Silage and Corn Grain Crops New York State 1984
Snyder, Darwin P.
Dairy herds and dairy farms continue to steadily increase in size. In some cases, the herd size increases more rapidly than the land base on which feed is grown. When this situation occurs, a market develops for various field crops. Thus, it is not uncommon for hay to be sold standing or for other forage crops or various grain crops to be sold by or to farmers. In the fall of 1984, a Crop Price Survey form was distributed by county extension agents to obtain current prices paid for various field crops sold at the farm level. Those results are included in this publication. The survey also was designed to obtain current information on rental rates for various real estate items which are published in a separate report.* A copy of the survey form is included in this report as Appendix I.
