Did the other deal with your friend fall thru? It sounded like the better of the two offers you have currently to consider.

My other friend is like trying to wait because he so attached to his cows and wants to keep at his place since we got some rain... but I’m thinking he’s leaning towards keeping him on his place . I was just seeing if he didn’t bring them see what offers I could get and what’s good or bad

Figure it back to $ per cow and go from that. What are you referring to when you say feed tbem? If your doing all the work and supplying the mineral maybe i should send you some.

Where you located lol. He told me he would buy the feed and wanted me to feed them 2-3 times a week but I didn’t mind putting out mineral when need cause I’ll have my two heifers out there as well. But I’m trying to make a little money that’s why I’m asking advice on it cause personally the owner or whoever I decide to lease it to wouldn’t have to ever come out since I live on the property just have to an agreement on price per acre or price per head what’s a good price to charge
He says about 14 cows and 11 calves around that give or take a few

I think your $1,000 is more than reasonable. In figure I can give $10 a head a month and me do all the work and still be ok.

Make sure it is understood that you provide the care but if there are vet bills or death that he is responsible.

So the guy that originally wanted to do the lease is now basically going to bring his two heifers and two bred cows over and let me basically keep them on my land but lease them to own which I feel like is perfect in my situation and will be lenient in his price to buy them.

I’ll post more pics he will bring them Sunday but I want to offer him a price that’s not too high or low for the group.
