I easily make 200 a year picking up black walnuts, which usually takes me approximately 72 hrs, "we're in the money"!

I'll stick with hunters and pine straw harvesters, at least I can tell them to get the heck off my property. A cell tower by the road would sure be nice through.

If we'd of know this we'd of picked our own cotton.

"Easy" Pasture Profit is subjective :roll:

Ya know...they can put a gate and lock on a cattleguard......a good many of them around here.

If we knew then what we know now we would have insisted on both in the contract. Cattle guards would now be at our expense but we're considering at least one, maybe 2.

Before you go and spend any of your money at least ask them. I've got worlds of stuff done long after executing a lease just by asking. Most good companies are more than happy to maintain a good relationship with the property owner. Don't go telling them what you'll do though.....they might show you. :nod:

Yup, worth asking. Especially since we just discovered they moved/used a huge pile of our dirt to re-build the berm. And it was the good stuff!

Guy I helped last winter had 3 windmills on his pastures. He said they paid about $700 a month. His sister has about 30 on her property. She rents him the pasture pretty cheap. She has enough money coming in from the windmills that she isn't interested in running cows anymore.

Just came home from checking my fall calving cows. We had 8-10" of rain a couple weeks ago and there was water over an oil lease road in my pasture. Well, they 'fixed' their road sometime in the past day or so. They brought in a backhoe? maybe, it was a tire machine. Instead of hauling in gavel, the bas****s took a strip of top soil off my pasture about 8 feet wide and 30-40 feet long. Simply scraped up about 6 inches and hauled it down to the bottom of the hill to repair the washed out spot in the road. I am beyond angry. I found the president of the company email address and sent him a picture and my thoughts. Oh yeah, they took the soil off a side hill up at the top so it'll wash really nicely.

That's just wrong! So now they're going to have to spend 3 times the $$$ to repair/replace.

They don't have any right to be off their easement, I would be collecting some serious damages for that.
