Does anyone here lease land by the head per month? The place I'm going to get started, the guy charges $12.50 per month, per head. Is that a standard way of leasing? Seems pretty good for a guy like me who only wants to start out with 3-4 head.

Check with your local extension office, they'll know what the going rate is.
Around here it runs 7-12 per head, calves at the lower, bigger stuff at the higher, pairs depends on the calf size but about 1 /2 times the rate. The catch is, that's dependent on the uality of the pasture also, if water is supplied, etc.

Thats what I was meaning. If he was going to watch out for them.Then your rent could be higher. :)
