I have the opportunity to pick up 7 acres of pure alfalfa hay. It’s my neighbors property and he currently rents it out to a local farmer that sprayed glyphosate, worked the ground, and drilled in the seed 2 years ago. The neighbor is 1/2 mile from my place. Currently the farmer gives the land owner/my neighbor a quarter of beef to use the ground(rent). The farmer is giving my neighbor the impression that a 1/4 of beef is too much for the lease and trying to get him to take less and my neighbor is a little p/o’d about the situation. The farmer has a 200 head feedlot. 7 acres of Alfalfa should be enough to feed all my cows and calves through the winter. I am considering offering him a half of beef in exchange for rent. I currently have another neighbor make my hay for me for $10/round 6x5’s mowed Tedded raked and bailed. Seems like a no brainer to me. What would you do up do?
