Do My own.
1. I know the right field got sampled.
Hired a guy one time, and got sample report, I went into that field and there were NO TRACKS from Him.
2. I know where to sample to get a good average of the field. There are some lower yielding areas to stay away from, or sample separately. Hired guy will not know where they are.
3. Saves money. I bought a hyd pickup mounted probe 25 yrs ago and still use it.
4. Quality control. I know My sample got delivered to the lab on time. Not a week later, after sitting out in the sun and rain.
