Started second cut

Post by Bernie/MA » Sun Sep 06, 2020 6:50 pm

My guy mowed yesterday, gonna bale tomorrow. Am going to try going by the bale instead of shares. Been too dry to get much so I asked about another .50 per bale to 7.50. Regular customers are ok with it and there won't be enough for others anyway.

If my guy does it all and hires his own help how much should I charge him for the standing hay? I fertilized it. Some ball park figures would be appreciated. Thanks.

I should start by saying I have absolutely no experience and therefore no idea.

Most times I see this discussed, it's done on a percentage of the bales. If he's using your equipment, 50/50 is too generous IMHO, but maybe 25/75?
