Ok. First of all is it one 70 acre field or ten 7 acre fields? Makes a huge difference. Second---it is most fair to everyone if you just charge by the hour because, and those of you who have done it know this, if after you disk it twice you may find soil condition still is not right to seed. Might have to drag it first. Then it might rain for a week so you have to disk it again to kill weeds. Then you may have to roll or pack it after seeding. I tell everyone-and I do a lot of custom work-I will charge you $65/hr. for what ever you want me to do. You want me to disk it once-$65/hr. You want me to disk it twice-$65/hr. You want me to pick up rocks as I go along-$65/hr. You want me to walk across the field to get the trailer with seed-$65/hr. Tell them every time they do something of the process it is saving them $65/hr. Let them call the shots.

I agree with flying Belgian except that around here rates are generally a lot higher. I charge different rates according to the power needed to pull the implement so my pass with smaller tractor to pick rocks is at a lower rate but it is at a slower speed so it still costs. and I still get paid for my time. on one job I left my loader tractor for the guy to use for a day picking rocks and charged him that much less than if I were with it.
