A guy here had to "inform" me how many acres they were farming and they have more debt now than ever. My neighbor thinks he would be WAY better off farming less and doing a better job. In fact the neighbor said better management would make him more money on fewer acres than farming more acres.

I should have asked the guy if he'd like to compare balance sheets, net worth statements and profit/loss statements......but nahhhh, let him think what he wants. Reply With Quote
Aug 25, 2016 | 21:22 3 Guys here will still be dishing out $100 plus an acre regardless Reply With Quote
Aug 25, 2016 | 21:27 4 I have 7 quarters west of Saskatoon along highway 7 I will be looking to rent out. Sick of traveling to farm them, what's the best option? Tender process for cash rent? Reply With Quote

Find a good farming paying tenant. ....someone who will take care of the dirt and pay rent on time....that will be worth more than an extra $5/acre(or what ever) when you don't get paid any of it at all from unscrupulous people.

Well said, my idea exactly, and NEVER sign any BS "right of first refusal", go multiyear if you wish, but I would look at the past year to be happy with tenant next year. Reply With Quote

Very efficient neat tidy operation and the best crops around year after year. Reply With Quote
Aug 25, 2016 | 22:14 9 Just an idea to ponder - it works well for us - ask 1/2 going cash rent then 10 to 20% crop share . If tat fits for you, it's not for everyone - it's a trust issue to grow good crops that match or exceed high cash rents - reduces risk for the guys putting their entire balls on the line to grow the crop.

Aug 26, 2016 | 00:25 10 hows this for mind blowing have to talk tonnes per hectare sorry

5t ha county, this year probably going to yield 6 maybe even more and 2 to 2.5 t ha lentils $247 per acre rent in some of the most favoured country in our state. Now hes gonna lose a fair portion of his crop in rent payment let alone input costs.

Now im currently renting acres that will yield 1.5t ha possibly 2 if all goes well and wait for it pricey some of $10 per acre maybe my calculator is stuffed I don't know but I may be slightly ahead Reply With Quote
SASKFARMER3's Avatar Aug 26, 2016 | 06:05 11 I would take some of that land for $50.00 an acre some way less. I can make some money at that for all hard work. But at 100.00 acre or just less its a money loser. Let the pension fund find out what farming is really like.

I believe guys have to adjust rent this year. next year looks tighter yet and if the fert and seed and chem don't drop plus fuel its going to get tighter yet. Reply With Quote

Me rent land?? Ummmm.... no thanks.

Only way I'd consider renting ANY land is if it was land touching what we own and we felt that was the only chance we'd have at buying it someday. Reply With Quote

Aug 26, 2016 | 11:10 16 70 yr old very good farmer retiring here. Good land, very clean, surrounded by the biggest and the best farmers in 3 RM's. RB land lease auction, its going to be a clash of the titans on this property. If the canola and lentil crops come off in good shape I predict $100/acre possibly more. Its going to be worth watching.

Aug 26, 2016 | 15:50 18 Not that property! That is waaay to valuable for me to run over. High rent and three years selling transition grain into the conventional market wiuld be the death of me!
I have been lucky, people approach me to farm their less desireable farms. Lower assesment, bushes and smaller fields. So far everyone is satisfied with the rent. It has been a decade of learning but so far I am still kicking around. Reply With Quote
blackpowder's Avatar Aug 27, 2016 | 08:26 19 Crap, if we could grow lentils here, god knows where the rent would be. $100 now. Reply With Quote
Aug 27, 2016 | 08:47 20 There are lentil crops on good land that won't gross 100 bucks an acre this year. Reply With Quote
