BOOKLET OFFERS TIPS ON COSTS OF FARM MACHINES

While many production costs are beyond the control of farm operators, they do have some control over machinery costs.

To help farmers maximize this control, two Utah State University Extension specialists have assembled a booklet focusing on farm machinery expenses.The booklet, "The Cost of Owning and Operating Farm Machinery," was written by Larry K. Bond, USU Extension economist, and Darwin Jolley, USU Extension agriculture engineering and machinery specialist.

The publication looks at the types of costs farmers face, including fixed and variable costs. It also helps farmers in estimating the expense of field operations, custom rates and purchase price of machinery vs. replacement cost.

The cost of the booklet is $1.50. It can be ordered through county USU Extension offices. Ask for publication number EC416.
