Leasing cows on land

Postby Bfields30 » Wed Jul 04, 2018 2:23 pm

Friend of mine wants to put his cows on my land from august until October as well as he wants to give me a bred cow once he takes them off my place . Me personally didnt think it was problem should I charge him and if I do how much. I have two heifers on it my grass now i have 50 acres but only use the front 20-25 so i don’t have to shred I thought his 7 would be ok on the 20-25 acres and I’m trying to figure it out because he has them at his place on 10 acres and has ran out of grass. Let me know what you guys think ? Also though I’ll be adding buying more cows myself of my own so I’m kinda stuck in between on what should I do.

61 days pasture (August-September) for his 7 cows and he pays you with a bred cow... seems more than fair to me.
In fact I'd probably pay him $50 too boot for choice, just to be sure it isn't his 3 legged cow as payment.

If you are not using that pasture, it is a good deal, get you another cow and save fuel and time from mowing off the pasture. I'd do it in a heartbeat.

He’s older up and age and he literally has no grass left so I just offered it up to him if he wanted to keep them at my place and he accepted...

Doing something like offering it is a very thoughtful and generous thing to do. And obviously he really appreciated it by offering you a bred cow in return. Even if you get one of the older ones, if his cows are pretty decent you have a chance to get a possible replacement heifer. And by being such a good neighbor, who knows what it may turn into down the road. One good turn does come around in the future. And no matter what else, it makes you a good person.

I’m curious as well. I’d like to find a small parcel to finish 6 to 8 head a year and have no idea what to offer someone.
