When I wanted to get more land to use I drove around the area I was interested in. I knock on doors to find out who ownded the land and if it could be used. I have pick up 150 plus acres of hay fields and 20 acres of pasture. WE build and maintain the fence on the pasture piece.

We found our land the same way. Looked for land that wasn't being used and started asking about it. If you can't locate an owner the county courthouse can be a big help.

Carla, I believe you are from the Springfield Mo area because of your e-mail addy.

If that is the case, first drop by your neighbors! Many in this area would contemplate selling their current stock (rather than feed them) and your offer of pasture rent may be what they are looking for!

The next step would in my case (and I am 50 miles North of Springfield) be for me to go and ask at the "Good old Boy table" at the local coffee shop.

I would also do all the door knocking that was suggested by the other responses.

Hereabouts the average pasture rental (and you MUST take care of and improve the fences and also properly fertilize and over seed) is around $40/acre of perminant pasture. It could easily run you an additional $3 to $4 grand improvement costs on a 20 to 40 acre parcel.

Good Luck!
