rent pasture

Help Support CattleToday:



I have been wondering what the going rate for a cow calf pair is for rent on pasture? I am looking to manage some cattle but I need some average prices to put together my plan. Thank you

Pasture rent ranges from as low as $1.50 a pair per month to as high as $40 a pair per month.

The difference is in the grass, fences, supply/demand water etc. etc. etc.

If you are supplying salt, management/checking fencing the rate should be between $25 and $40. If you are just renting out land it should be less. Some pasture arrangements supply the bull power and this has to be figured in as well.

Every arrangement is different so no averages can be stated. It has to be good for both parties for it to work, If land is sitting idle it's too high, if the phone is ringing off the hook it's maybe priced right or slightly low.
