Ohio farm operators were surveyed about the proportion of selected agricultural services provided by them for their operations and the income earned from providing these services for others. The survey respondents provided more than half their tillage, crop harvesting, crop and livestock hauling, crop storage, and fertilizer and pesticide application. Excluding the latter, which stayed constant, proportion provided increased as farm size increased. Also, proportion of farm operators who provided these services for others increased as farm size increased.
