Ag Workforce Compensation Survey

Dear Dairy Producer,

Would you like to know more about farm worker compensation trends? Do you want to compare and manage your compensation strategy with accurate, up-to-date, and relevant information? Then participate in the Farm Employee Compensation Benchmark!

How can you participate?
Gather information about one or a few of your workers for the year 2017. How much did you pay them: wages, bonus/incentive, benefits? And how many hours did they work?

Log into the Ag Workforce website and click on “Farm Employee Compensation Survey.”

Enter another employee by simply clicking the link in Step 2 again. If you have different types of employees such as front line, middle, and senior managers, add a few representative employees to the benchmark.

That’s all, you’re done. Just look for the summary report from me in your email.

What do you get for this?
Every person who submits at least one usable survey will get a summary and analysis of the benchmark data in a written report.

Additionally, you can request a “My Employee” report to compare one or more of your employees to relevant peers in the benchmark. Just ask me to provide you with the “My Employee” report.

All of your individual farm data remains confidential. Reports will only be issued in aggregated form as analysis and summary of the data, with no way to identify individuals.

Please contact me with any questions or concerns. Thanks for participating!
