FAS aerial maps

PostBy: wilder11354 On: Sat Feb 16, 2013 8:25 pm

went over to local Fed ag service place, and got a aerial survey map of property behind farm i got. They were friendly, showed me plat book to get farm survey id #. after a few minutes it printed out. I talked to the older woman last summer about haying her fields to keep them in usebable condition plus help keep weeds under control and keep from effecting my endeavors. She didn't say no. I didn't realize she has 118 acres there with about 60 of it useable for crops.
I don't beleive i want to lease it outright to hay for mulch and upkeep her property. I was thinking about a crop share lease situation. i do the work, cut off fields, use her barn to store hay, and split what we sell hay for. For thefirst 2 years it will be mostly low grade feed, or better mulch hay. Right now mulch around here is going for 2.50 a bale and up, depending on time of year and local demands(NG drillling/pipelines)

Alll the work would be on me, exspense of harvest, and paying help for doing this. ? is would .75 a bale for her be taking advantage of her as base share? figure there will be about 2500-3000 bales to start and hopefully with time and some maintenance on fields increase to about 4500 bales.

.75 per bale is more than enough. She would have to pay to get it
cut if you have a weed ordinance in your township. If you offer so
much per acre and the haying season sucks you end up with a loss.

Theres no ordiances for weeds up here. Figure it would help her with paying taxes on property and me with getting a little more cash flow for upgrading my endeavors, and plans. win, win for both i think.
Wish there was ordiance for multi florar rose control, dang fish and game stupidity from years past.

.75 is more than enough....

I have done and continue to do similar things with hay that I make on neighboring fields.

I had 2 people come to me when they knew I had first moved in 8 years ago to make their hay also.

Right now I only do round bales but when I did small squares I usually split 50 to 75 cents per bale also.

But most of my hay was pretty good and I was making maybe 3 to 4 per bale also.

Making friends with neighbors is important!

Talked to the woman with the property today.. she said she doesn't want to sign any lease, but i can cut the fields for hay. I said its only fair that you get something for letting me hay the fields. Do a crop share for what i cut and sell off them. She said no, i just want the fields to be kept up some so as to not get over grown, and become unuseable. So now i have about another 40>50 acres to hay off. Will have to go up walk fields soon, paint mark any rocks, and any other place that will be bad on equipment, plus access other areas that will need brush hog for heavey woung multi floral rose bush erradication. Need more 24D and round up for this also,
