Agricultural contracting is a valuable resource for labour and equipment, even for seasoned farmers with established local farms.
Agricultural machinery often has a high initial capital which makes it cost-ineffective to own, particularly if you only need it on an infrequent basis. Additionally, you may require special training and license to safely operate some of the machinery.
